Had a MEC 650 land on my reloading bench at a better-than-right price. Have reloaded metallic for more than thirty years, but only dabbled in shotshell reloading.
Can this 650 be used by running only one hull at a time through the process--or will the charge bar dump powder and shot with every pull of the handle?
I'm getting close to permanently retiring and have no need to rush or get in a hurry anymore, so speed isn't my concern--safety, accuracy and consistency is.
Thanks for any feedback.

Recluse, It has been quite a while since I have owned one but memory tells me that you can. You will have to remove the primer feed spring to keep it from dropping a primer at each station. I don't know why you would do it single stage though. It is just as safe, accurate and consistent operating at full speed which is 6 times the speed of manual. There is no magic or mystical music going on when you reload. I enjoy it but I have two very fast machines and I have had single stage and they are monotonous and boring. I can find a lot better things to do with my time.
