I hate to be a party-pooper at this love-fest for the Auto-mate but I'd hesitate to recommend it. I will say is that when it's working OK, it does take all the work out of reloading and will make good looking loads. Having said that, when I change loaders there is just too much fiddling to do to get it making good loads. I've marked the position of the overtravel stop and even though I've got it set in the same place each time, at the start, I always have to make minute adjustments. Of course, the pull rod has to be adjusted for length between each loader. And, the claim that 99% of all MEC loaders need no adjustment for them to work with an automate is pure rubbish. I've got three rigged up and ALL of them took extensive adjusting. As far as I'm concerned, I converted three perfectly good MEC 9000G's into something far less desirable. The fact that I can eventually get good loads at a fairly brisk clip is the only reason that I keep it.
