The 12-gauge Mini-Grand will load everything
from 2 3/4-inch regular to 3 1/2-inch magnum shotshells, while the 20-gauge version
handles 2 3/4- and 3-inch shells. The press can be used with RCBS, Hornady or Ponsness
Warren powder and shot bushings. The easy-to-use unit will load up to 200 rounds per hour.
