You can probably buy a used MEC Jr. as cheaply as you'd like...and the press will give you years of service. In my case, loading 16 ga., the press allows me to load ammunition that isn't routinely available, or is out of sight expensive. For 12 or 20 ga., you can probably buy by the case lot, and match the price of loading your own. The price of shot, in the bag is the sticking point. If you have access to "mined" shot off a local range at 1/2 the price of new, bagged shot, you can do better. HTH's Rod
