I was recently given a MEC Sizemaster press. I want to set it up for 3" game loads, both lead and steel. I'm an expiernced rifle and pistol reloader and I used to reload 2 3/4 shotgun ammo 25 years ago on different equipment. I have a buddy who provides me with target loads at a very good price. I'll keep him until he decides I should load my own.

I need some recommendations on what kind of hulls to use for reloading and some recommendations on how many ounces of shot I should load for 3" game loads for pheasant and water fowl loads (I'm thinking 1 1/2 ozs). I do understand that I need to make changes to the reloader in going from steel to lead.

Anyone have some good recipes to recommend?

1. Check the powder mfgs sites/publications for their recommended loads and recipes.
2. Go out and pattern the loads you've worked up.

I like AA hulls or STS but also have good success with Feds in my gun.
