    Seagiant,

    Did you finally come up with one? I had to buy a manual for my 800b shotgun loader as they were not available anywhwere other than PW.

    Seagiant,

    I know there are members on this forum who have P-200s. Maybe they would be kind enough to make a copy for you. -- The original manuals are available through PW, but they charge for them! Suprised...

    Hi,
    Well earlier I was looking for info on the PW metal matic p-200. I'm now trying to find info on this PW Metallic II Press, which to me looks like the same H-frame that they use for the shotshell reloaders that they make. I just sold my Dillon 550B on the swap forum and I'm tired of the merry-go -round and going back to pretty much single stage loading. I have not found any manual on this loader. Supposedly this loader will reload rifle or pistol ammo with ease. I have not heard much about it but everything I hear is good including the primer system! Just looking for more details on it!

    Sorry about that. I thought you were originally in the market for a P-200. -- Anyway, I have no experience with the Metallic II press, however I DO want one. I actually think it would be an upgrade to the old stand-by (RockChucker).

    Its not a top priority on my "things to buy" list, but I will get one eventually. I have seen these on E-bay from time to time, but not as frequently as the P-200.

    Again, if you put the word out there, someone who owns a Metallic II might be willing to mail you a photocopy of the manual....although I think the press and operation are pretty straight forward.

    Hi,
    I talked to a gentleman at PW and he was not much help(amazing) I guess if the product sells itself people can just lay back and take it easy??? I did have a good conversation about the loader from a dealer in Jax.Fla. I was interested in the primer system and he says it works fantastic and that he uses the press for his own loadings but have yet to talk to a private owner!

    Hopefully, the OP has bought one by now or moved-on. If not, he has set a new record for both procrastination and patience.

    Oh, and I bought one a couple years back and use it for small jobs. It is both interesting and unique.

    The priming system is a bit funky but manageable. The powder measure pictured is a Quick-Measure.

    Mine is older I guess, all the current info I've found shows a much different priming system than the one on my press. It only had the large priming set up when I bought it but I was able to get some parts from PW and made a few to get it working with small primers.
    It is funky but is handy for small test lots.

    Seagiant; bought a PW Press from me and he got the manual with it.

    I don't think he is still with us, as the last time I talked to him was about 3 years ago and he had some kind of Cancer.

    I miss him, he was a great guy and good friend.

    He was 6' 7" tall and many thought his moniker was because of that. His Moniker actually came from a Tugboat he worked on as a young Merchant Mariner. It was called "Sea Giant!"

    Here's a tribute to Seagiant!

    His last post was in 2017. It would be a shame if he has passed.
