MEC Short Kit #8849
This clever kit allows you to convert your 600JR, Sizemaster, or Steelmaster reloader to load shortened shells. Just leave your loader adjusted for long hulls and change to shorter shells by simply inserting the machined plate. Convert 3" loaders to 2-3/4" or 2-3/4" loaders to 2-1/2". Includes riser plate and shell holder. For single stage loaders only.
Graphic: The photo above shows how this kit works. The 2-1/2" 28ga shell on the right is raised by the plate and allows for normal reloader functions. The 2-3/4" 28ga shell on the left is for pictured for reference. All kits work in essentially the same manner. Some Short Kits come with additional tubes, etc.
