    You've heard me talk about my loader for a couple months now and I think the time has come to reveal the unit with all it's revisions. I'm going to test the waters and offer a few for sale later this week.

    I got dibs on the first one!

    I got DIBBS on the first one....
    I think they will be the best yet being multicaliber friendly and Depth set adjustable.

    Here's my plan. Smokin_Gun, I have one set aside for you. I'll put one on this website's trading board, one on ebay, and one I'll be sending to North American Muzzleloader Hunting Magazine for a product review.

    That was the prototype loader that you saw on another thread. When I post the loaders, I'll also have photos and a video on my website to demonstrate the ease and speed in which one can change from one make and caliber to another. It's my hope that it fill a niche in the market.

    I don`t understand why the guy makeing the ones sold at Powder Inc ..stopped production ..once ya get use to useing a cylinder stand ..sure makes life easyer for us Remington shooters ....I would have worn the loading lever pins out on mine had it not been for the cylinder stand ..much easyer to get consistant seating pressure too ..
    ...........SmokinGun ....It`ll work on the modern new fangle ROA cylinder too ...LOL

    My loader works with the Rugers, Colts and Remingtons, from .31 cal. to .45 cal. I understand the need to be consistent when loading. It was that quest for consistent loading that spurred me to make my loader. Previously, the shooter relied on "feel" each time he loaded. With my loader, you still use "feel", but only to load the very first chamber, after locking in the seating depth, the only variable would then be the measured powder charge. My loader will consistently seat the ball to the same depth each time you lower the loading lever.

    I plan on posting a video on my website that shows switching between loading my '49 pocket to my Ruger Old Army in about 10 seconds.

    Sounds like a good plan to me 6Gun4Fun... I needed a good loadin' press like my Pard Sundance gots, ain't got the money time or room to load or carry around as many wooden loaders as I would need...one cylinder press takes the place of 100 or more loading stands.
    :D Yup I'm happy

    I've been working on building an inventory and finalizing my Reg. U.S. Patent all at the same time and should have some ready next week. As you may know, I already have patent pending status for my idea. I've received several inquiries from the website too. I just need a little more time. My plan is to have one on this website trading board, one on ebay, and the balance will be available from the website.
    I want to keep ebay out of my pocket as much as possible. Buyers will be able to make payments through paypal or money orders money orders, and of course good old fashioned cash. I've been a seller on ebay for 8 years. Here's a link to ebay's "My world" if anyone wonders about my trading history. I've created another ebay user name that closely resembles my website name to sell the first loader.

    I had to special order some cutting tools for machining, I just got the call that they have arrived! Things are going a bit slower then I had hoped but I anticipate having some completed very soon.
