have you tried the QuikLoader on  your finished shells yet?

 

 

I have. Excellent addition to my MEC9000. The wife even mentioned that the shells load easier that before.

Yes, I have. As a matter of fact it is on the setup in this video. You will see it there in the shot where I'm pulling the handle.

 

The press holds the shells on the shell plate with little spring clips.

 

Occasionally, the loaded shell is held in the quickloader die tightly enough that the spring clips will let go of the shell with it still in the die.

 

If you realize that it is happening as your lowering the tool head, you take the empty shell that you're holding to put into stage 1 for the next pull and you can use it too add some pressure to the spring clip to hold the shell tight enough to pull it out of the die.

 

A minor inconvenience for what is a great product.

 

Far fewer failures with my check gauge since using the QuickLoader.
