What is the opinion on the Ponsness/Warren single stage reloader? Is it better than a MEC Sizemaster? I am looking for a versatile all around reloader. I would appreciate any opinions.

My opinion the best single stage press out there, will last a life time. With the die holding the hull through out the process and at the crimping station, the hulls will not buckle if using straight wall hulls, and the crimps are as good as factory. 10Tenner

True, as long as the primer seating does not push up the base of the hull, as has been reported here.

For the price of a new 375, you can pick up a 800B for about the same price.

As for a used 375, you want to make sure that it has the newer taper crimper dies installed.

As for dishing the bottom of the hulls, the problem where is the primer seating post was set too high, and just needs to be lowered.

Sorry Dano:

Have to disagree that adjusting the primer seat post will fix all ills.

Review this post for my 375 experiences with Remington cases:

I believe this is also what Curly was refering to above.

Is this primer seating design not similar across the P-W product line?

Hello, I post here at first time.

Well, what is your opinion? Which of these reloaders is better - P/W 375 or MEC sizemaster?

It depends on how many gauges you're going to load for.

If all I wanted was a one gauge loader I would buy a sizemaster. If I wanted to load for multiple gauges I would buy a PW 375.

I have owned both and like both.

I currently own and use a PW 375 for 3 gauges.
