    Anyone familiar with this press? I was given the DL-300, which is a progressive press and a Texan loader which looks like a single stage. I have already found this site for some great info:

    Anyone have any info on the DL-300? Looks like a shotgun Shell reloader. The gunsmith who gave it to me also thought it could do metallic case reloading. Does it take standard dies? Where would I procure shell plates?

    Any info on Texan loaders?

    I can post pictures tomorrow if anyone would like.

    Thanks in advance.

    Dietemeyer was a champion shotgun shooter years and years ago. He didn't like the loaders at the time, so he invented his own. I have one of them. He was bought out by Hornady and they marketed his reloaders under the Pacific name until they changed everything over to Hornady brand.

    Hope this helps.

    I was given a pacific loader, for twelve gauge. I emailed Hornady and they were very helpful. They sent me copies of the original instruction and parts list. Supply them the particulars of your loader. Model # etc. good luck!
