    So in my never ending desire for new widgets...I ordered a "White Tail Sniper" from RAI.

    I called and he said it's about 10 days, they make them in small batches. What the heck...they take PayPal.

    Looks like a nice loader for the price........

    Maybe they can afford spell check after a few sales;)

    You're gonna like it. I have the original version that he is now calling The Plainsman. The footprint is a little smallish; but if you mount it to a wooden base and keep the surface between the cam and plunger well lubricated it works fine.

    This new one looks like it's the size of a small Korean car.

    I just noticed some of the errors on his site. Rather than using spell check...it really looks like he was a victim of it.

    Once I sent out an email to an entire campus of 12,000. Spell check caught a mistake and I clicked to change it before realized it was still wrong. It changed the word to asses instead of assess.

    So I'm not harsh on those kind of mistakes anymore. Spell check has caused me to ignore spelling as a meaningful skill and GPS has caused me to lose all sense of direction.

    I'm not sure what skill I'll lose next due to technology obviating it...

    Spell check can be evil. Just last night I was sending an email; and spell check kept changing "realized" to "realised". I finally noticed that the language option was set to the Queen's English instead of 'murican English. :eek:

    I ordered one too. I've used my buddies original RAI and loved it. Very well made for the price. The Buffalo Hunter model can be bought off EBAY for $10.00 less than advertised price,with free shipping.
    EBAY (black powder pistols loading stand). One of the strongest and best units on the market for the price!

    I like how they're improving the design but would prefer that the ram had a brass tip like the Powder Inc. loader rather than one made of steel.

    arcticap...I agree. The D/D loader I have has a brass tip. It is less likely to scratch the cylinder walls than tool steel.

    I have an original RAI and like it though I want a longer lever for it. Good point about being careful to not scratch the cylinder walls.

    You would have to try pretty hard to scratch the cylinder walls when loading balls. The plunger face is convex which centers it on the ball. Since the plunger diameter is less than the ball (and cylinder bore) it never touches the sides of the cylinder bore.

    I can't speak about the flat faced plunger which is designed to load cast bullets; since I don't own that model.

    Looks good to me...I have been wanting some sort of Loader for quite a while too.


    I will check out the 'ebay' mode/option as well as delving further into their Web site info.


    This would be especially nice for loading full wadcutters or longer Boolit forms which otherwise are awkward to get in under the front lower Frame area when trying to load in the usual way.

    Yes, and only two mounting holes diagonally.

    The holes are 3/8" in diameter; and offer plenty of stability.

    Loading three chambers at a time balances the loading process nicely. Ram the balls home after installing cylinder in revolver.

    Trust me, two holes diagonally is weird design work, normal practice would be four holes.

    If you can do 3 at a time...why not all 6 at once?

    Bluehawk, Six at a time works but requires more effort.

    Bushrod2, I use this loader whenever I shoot. Ain’t forgot to ram the balls home yet. Forgetful people would be well advised to participate in a different activity.
