MEC Short Kit 16ga 2-3/4" to 2-1/2" #8971
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.
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.
This kit converts 2-3/4" 16ga reloaders to load 2-1/2". For single-stage reloaders only.
Also available for 2-1/2" lengths:
Resizing high-brass hulls: If you are experience resistence when resizing high-brass hulls, try just a little bit of Mica Wad Slick on the brass, die, or resizing area of your reloader. A little dry lube goes a long way toward saving reloading sanity. Also, the MEC Super Sizer works very for all high brass hulls.
