30+ year old MEC jr in action

Since my Dad lives out of state, I wanted him to see his old equipment up and running...
Here is a video of the MEC jr in action. Kind of boring really...
Only tested with explorer and firefox, wont show with firefox...

I've never loaded shot shells so it was cool to see it done. You have more hair than I though. HEE HEE

Won't show in much of anything. I view videos on nearly website using realplayer. It won't do this without add-ons from the website, and I don't trust add-ons. Wish I could see it. I still use TEXAN shotshell reloaders.

Much better video! Not boring at all, I watched it beginning to end. Not that I spend the night doing reruns but I enjoyed. Like LAH I am a little envious of your hair line.

My Hair Line?

Guess I should of had my hat on...
Is there something I missed about reloading? Must you be totally bald or something?
Been thinking about doing another video with better cam/lighting and close up. Using text overlay to explain each step in the process.
I know it would of helped me out when I started.

Hair line... Hahaha!

Mine isn't what it used to be!

I used a MEC 600jr. to reload 12-gauge trap shells for 30-odd years. Best little reloading press you can get for the money. Once I had everything layed out on my reloading bench (primers, powder, shot, wads, and empties), I could easily reload 100 rounds in an hour.

I gave it away to a young friend a couple of years ago who has less hair than me, but that's because he's in the US Army.

That anecdote aside, I give high marks to the little MEC reloader.
