Default Help Identify some reloading rigs

A friend's friend is selling his uncle's stuff in an estate sale, offered some to him first. I told him to get some of it even if he doesn't know or have the time to reload yet.

1 ? This is the one I would potentially want if I knew what it was, that and a MEC
2 Hollywood Press
3 Pacific Press
4 RCBS Rock Chuckers Supremes? I told him to get the top green
5 Lyman EZ Loader
6 Super Sizer
7 Powder drop

Interesting, I like how the MECs are easier to empty. I like how the Lee lets you adjust bushings for shot too.

I'm glad things are mostly standard now. Shellholder and dies being interchangeable for the most part is helpful.

I told him to take the top 4 and 7 at the very least. Most people don't reaload shotshells and they haven't gone up in price. I was interested in one of the MECs at 12g. Not excited that their charge bars are shot weight specific.

Yes, MECs are easier to empty. I also have 2 of those.

That Lyman EZ LOADER has changeable shot and powder bushings.

A bit slower than a MEC but makes better ammo. Because it sizes on the last operation. So you don't need a separate machine to size ammo like a MEC.

IMO if MEC was a Super machine. They wouldn't need to sell a Super Sizer to make ammo usable in pumps and autoloaders.

Yep, 6, Super Sizer,I knew what it was just not the name, had to look it up on youtube. I think I made a deal for all the red stuff (shotgun). It'll be interesting to see what number 1 is. You know it's old cause it has a wooden pull handle. Coming from NY by a very busy friend with 2 teens and a crazy ex wife so maybe a month from now...

Between 6 and 7 are some RCBS Jr presses. Good presses to have.....

Don't they have interchangeable bushings for shot weight?

I read somewhere that each bar is shot specific and the bushings are for powder only but I could be wrong. Thought I saw it on Midway. Lee lets you change both with bushings.
