Question about the MEC SS 77 sizer

I know, I know, why does one prick around with high brass hulls. I picked these up free long ago, they are Winchester 00 Buck hulls. After casting up a bunch of RB, gonna load up a batch of bugout buck loads, and just want to use the hulls as self identifying. I'm getting old, OK

Anyway, my old trusty TEXAN DP II has an issue ejecting higher brass hulls. The cam just don't want to push the ejector pin far enough. Have considerer building cam up a bit, but am thinking about this SS 77 tool. I have watched the only youtube video on the supersizer, and all they ever size is lowbrass AA style hulls. The well (where the hull is placed for sizing) in the tool don't look all that deep. Does anyone have any comments on this tool? A couple are running on the gay auction site right now.

Thanks

Haven't used the Mec SuperSizer but my Sizemaster press has the same collet sizer as used in the SS. It will size the high brass heads back to size. I like Mec's tool to measure the sized heads. It has holes for no-go and go which makes it easier to adjust the collets. You can adjust the collet to make it squeeze more or less. The Mec tool is called the "Shell Checker". You could use calipers but the shell checker is nicer.
