That is pretty cool!
I honed out an insert for one of my MEC 600 loaders years ago, and used it for throwing the charges and setting the wad pressure as well( the MEC has a scale on it)but have since gone back to throwing my charges by hand then setting the wads by hand for over the powder, then throw the shot charge with the machine and set the wad pressure when I put in the overshot wad
I charge 50 at a time and insert wads in.
Anytime I figure I've got this long range thing figured out, I just strap into the sling and irons and remind myself that I don't!
