Has anyone used one of these? Do they do a make a good cartridge? I think they look great, but can't see the $80 just to have something that LOOKS good, at least not right now, but is they work well, I'd like to have one.
It's a non-bench mount reloading press that uses special dies and works sort of like squeezing the handles on a pair of pliers. Nifty lil gadget, but a bit pricey fer my blood. But it is authentic to the old west, they've been around fer a heck of a long time.
I prefer the Lee Hand Press myelf, same portablilty, less cost, and uses standard dies from about any company.
"Positives: portability, easy stowage, convenience, and fine for slow production rate. Great for use in camp, in the truck, the range, or anywhere you want to casually assemble a few rounds. Reliable, accurate ammo can be made easily. Either cast or jacketed bullets no problem. Either blackpowder or smokeless loads are easy. The re-priming stage is done in a shell-holder die and is quiet, unlike the Lee Loader that requires a mallet. Authentic Old-West reloading. Relaxing and satisfying activity."
Was the exact information I was looking for!!!
I thought that they would be handy for taking to the range, non-production reloading and just look good with my guns.
