    Any suggestions for press? Auto indexing, progressives only. I'm looking for a press, which is odd because I can count the number of shells I've fired on one hand.

    Why do you need a progressive press (or any shotshell reloading setup for that matter) if you have so little experience with a shotgun?

    Anyway, I've come to find that the MEC presses are some of the best made.
    I've got the MEC SizeMaster. I don't shoot enough shotgun to justify a progressive. Only reason I got into reloading shotshells was because the specific shells I need for some hunting situations have become hard to find and expensive nowadays (#2 lead shot, 12 gauge).

    If I commit to spending the money on a press, I'm going to do it once. Not a huge fan of upgrading later.

    Not that I'm loaded or anything, but when it comes to buying tools price really isn't a consideration. Quality, reliabilty, and support are far more important than price.

    I just started working with a couple of MEC presses that I bought from another forum member. For the money and the very limited amount of shells I use every year, they (MEC) would be my choice.

    If you want higher end gear, check out this post from the Brian Enos forum (it's a competition shooter board)

    Regular Joe, I've got a couple of set up questins if you've got the time. I'll type them up and send a PM later today.

    I answered your PM. But, I'm not familiar with a single stage. You can call MEC too, they will help you too.
