I want to start reloading for trap shooting. Theres a $200 price difference between the 2 press's. Is there something the mec does that is $200 better? Im all about buy once cry once, i just am in the dark with shotshell reloading. I ordered the lyman shotshell book, so im waiting on that I also have about 100 of Winchester shells (not sure what crimp) and 250 federal shells with 6pt crimp. . From what im coming across component wise, it looks like i need to hunt down =corresponding wads for my Winchester shells based on shot weight. Is there a preferred wad you guys like? -7 1/2 lead shot -209 primers (Cant find lol) i might have to seek people out and trade pistol primers for shotshell primers My last question. Is 6 pt vs 8 point crimp based on the shell's previous crimp? Or is it your own decision? Thanks!
