Are the mec charge bars usable in all gauges? What I mean is, with regards to lead shot, can I use a 7/8th's charge bar in both a 12 gauge hull and a 20 gauge hull? Or are there different bars for the different gauges. I'm pretty sure that the bushings are all usable in different gauges.

Probably a rookie question...... thanks for not flaming me. :D

The bars for the progressive presses are different than the bars for the Single Stage presses. Keep that in mind.

Progressives have a 502# for the grabber and the 9000. You can find more data here:
