MEC Steel Shot Kit (#1308433)
for Single-Stage MEC reloaders
With this kit you can use any MEC single-stage reloader such as the 600 Junior and the Sizemaster for handloading steel shot.
Tip: This steel shot kit is also useful with large lead or other non-toxic shot. These pellets flow through the steel shot drop tube with less hang ups and binding. Includes shot feeding assembly.
NOTE: If you are crimping new, unfired hulls you may need the increased sharpness and crimp depth supplied by the brass-machined Super Crown Crimp Starter. (See information below.)
The Universal Charge Bar is an alternative product that may save you money and storage space. Some people prefer using their bushings with original MEC Charge Bars, while others like the universal adjustability of the Universal Charge Bar.
HOT-RODDING YOUR MEC RELOADER:
You can improve MEC performance with just a couple convenient accessories:
Better Crimps: When loading new/primed hulls, your crimps may not stay closed if you are using a standard plastic crimp starter. The Super Crown Crimp Starter is designed to put a lasting crimp memory into new plastic, essential for tight and functional crimps on new hulls. The Super Crown also provides better crimps on once-fired hulls too.

*Review Reply: The review below is partially correct in that this varies by the type and thickness of the wad you are using. Our lab recommends using a smaller diameter drop tube for thick wads OR you can do what the Curmudgeon does and simply push the column down with a wooden dowel.
