What is your gun of choice

  1. Highbirds their may be some manufacturers who offer reloading machines which,with a change in head and base will allow you to load different gauges but if their are I am not familiar with them.I have always had MEC reloaders,the sizemaster is the model I prefer because it resizes the head or base of the shell.
    My first MEC sizemaster I purchased lasted me 40 yrs without ever changing anything but a few rubber washers and plastice finger guides,a total of probably 10.00.Thats a great track record,I could not hazard a guess as to how many shells it loaded,it was in the 100's of thousands for sure.
    So I would start with a 20 since you seem to use that the most then get a 12 loader down the road.

  2. MEC reloaders are great value. I have one 20 gauge and one 28 sitting side-by-each on a work table.
    Keep your ears to the wall in case a used one comes along.
    Love mine!

  3. I definitely see a 20 g loader in my future. But given the abundance and variety of affordable 12 g ammo, I probably won't be in any rush to reload them unless I find myself owning a vintage 12 g double.

    I had a 16 g O/U that I sold about a year ago, a nice shooter but I was tired of the limited and expensive ammo choices. I thought about reloading for 16 g but naturally reloading supplies are noticeably higher for 16 g than 12/20.
  4. Better get all the loader stuff now before they take it all away...reloading my be your only way someday! God forbid...
