    question from wife..is there a reloader that can do .410 up to 12 guage.
    as our reloading area will be tight quarters she wants to keep the presses to a minimum.

    There are several, you just buy whatever conversions you need. The MEC 600 Jr on the lower priced end to the Dillon SL900 if you want to dump your 401k. :D

    thanks for the replies, there dont seem to be a home page for Spolar, lots of reviews but only seem to be used for sale..they go out of business? since we wont load more than 30 - 40 boxes a year dont need ane plated in gold..the MEC or the Dillon fit fine!

    The Load-All II can be easily and economically converted to another gauge with the conversion kit. The entire die carrier is replaced so no adjustments are needed. The conversion kit includes the die carrier, steel sizer, wad guide, shell holder, load data and instructions.
    12 Gauge 90070 Serv.Parts $24.98
    16 Gauge 90071 Serv.Parts $24.98
    20 Gauge 90072 Serv.Parts $24.98

    I wish LEE would get on the ball and make a mini load all specifically for the small bores. They could easly get .410 and 28 ga on the same platform and then everyone would be happy with them... I love my load all 2, takes all of 5 minutes to go from flingin 12s into the box to flingin 20s and its simple and compact, much moreso than a mec or the ginormous dillon

    JLA,

    I'm with you on that. Even if they didn't make conversion dies and I had to buy another one. There'd be 2 of the Load Alls at my bench.

    I dang near fell off my stool when I went to to the price list at that spolar page.

    :eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Wait, let's calculate this out. Forty boxes per year at, say, $10 per box is $400 per year in ammo. So it would take four years to start to come to any savings, and that's if your time and components are free. And we still haven't added another $300 to load for another gauge! :eek:

    Wheeew! I'd say that this system is designed for someone who's shooting closer to 400 boxes per year than 40...
