I am new to the world shotgun, but not new to the world of reloading. I started reloading shot shells about 8 months ago with a mec 9000H (it's a nice reloader) but I could only get the primers to feed 50% of the time. It was a constant battle with the primer tray. I have loaded for years on a Dillon 1050 well over 200,000 rounds and its still as nice now as when I got it! Looked at the Dillon but it won't do .410 so that was a no go. Took about 5 months and lots of calls and playing around with different reloaders to find the dream unit! Yeap the Spolar Gold!!!! I have now reloaded about 1000 rounds with no problems. This is the Caddy!

I will give this to the Mec's in 410 using ball powder with the plastic baffle, you can go a lot longer without having to clean the machine than on a Spolar or PW.


In the PW's or Spolars, you have to pick your poison!!!
It's either burn up hulls with lil' gun in 410, or get used to having to clean the machine about every 3K of reloads when using ball powders.

I agree with Dano523.
The use of wc820 (ball powder) does require cleaning of the assembly more so than other powders.
I do not have this issue in the 12, 20 or 28 gauge setup, I can load ,load, load.

I find that the selection of powder bushings are limited to the Spolar compared to the MEC system. Therefore, I have purchased a hand reamer and very fine sandpaper.

I do enjoy the limited footprint of the Spolar. I find the adjustments are easy to make.

Enjoy years of reloading.

I use Alliant 410 and have no prolems with powder. As far as bushing selection, you can buy an adaptor and use any MEC bushing in a spolar or pw or you can purchase bushings from spolar to match any MEC bushing.

rea5339, I am not familiar with the adapter you are referring to.
Can you provide a link?

Marks, enjoy, they are are a dream. I can clean my Splar with WC820 and still be way ahead of a Mec 9000 GN, which is what I owned before.

Try some Alliant 2400 for the 410 in that Spolar. Ric

Armando,
I puirchased my bushing from Precision Reloading. The part number is MMBC875. It is nothing more than a brass bushing sized to fit the ID of the spolar charge bar and OD of a MEC bushing.
