I use a MEC 600 for both 12 and 10. The RSI manual is my reloading bible for 10 and 12. However, the best loads can be found right here on DHC from fellow 10ga shooters. Alliant website has some good 10ga steel shot loads too.

I have owned the 10ga mec sizemaster and sold it. I really didnt need it. With the use of the mec 600 press and the mec supersizer, I have everything I need. So the extras on the steel master are of no need to me. I drop both powder and shot away from the press for an accurate drop. There is no way to accurately drop them with a charge bar.
I drop powder with a RCBS Uniflow powder measure and shot with either a RSI Multi-Pax or using a empty primer tray and dipping the shot for an exact pellet count. Since you are considering a auto 10ga, the sizemaster or collet type sizer is a must have item. I also use a GAEP finisher for improving my crimps.

I sold the 10ga Sizemaster right after buying it as I liked the 600 better. Mine is one of the older ones with not so many plastic parts. Basicly, the 600 does everthing that I need except for sizing. The MEC Supersizer does that for me. I have two of those mounted on my bench, one for 12 and one for 10. I have been loading steel shot with the 10ga 600 for 20 plus years. Cant say anymore than that. The collet sizer on the Sizemaster and the Steelmaster does the same thing as the Supersizer but its harder to keep adjusted when its on the press. At least it seemed that way for me. The Supersizer has a handle travel of only 2" compared to the ones on the press which size the brass base when you knock out the old primer.

Ponsness Warren is a lot better of a reloader when it comes to hunting loads in my opinnion, especially when it comes to handling large shot and large payloads.
