Welcome to TFL, net!

You've put your thread in the General Discussion forum, but I'm going to send it off to our Reloading forums. I think you'll get better responses there.

Cordially,
Spats

Quit foolin' around with antique junk!

Find a used MEC 600 jr., then you'll have a great loader that has parts available direct from MEC.

Somebody is going to come along, advise you to buy a Lee load-all in 20 gauge. That too will work.

Parts for that very old Herters loader that may NOT have been made in 20 gauge, will be nearly impossible to find.

Re: reload

I use a load all 2 and several of the lee handloaders for shotguns. Have a mec somewhere too. Got 20, 12, and 10 gauges

If you are going to be loading more than a few boxes, skip the zinc/plastic Lee. You cannot adjust it at all for crimp or wad seating, the hoppers can't be drained without unbolting the unit from the bench, and on and on.

For about $75, you can get a used MEC Jr. that will last you, your kids and their kids' lifetimes - check the bulletin board at your local trap/skeet club
