Now We have all seen and used the horribly inadequate Green and red "UNIVERSAL" Reloading trays that come in the kits. They are either to big or to small for any cartridge out there. Then you step up to the plastic or wood/resin versions put out by midwayusa and others. We have tried to make our own right a 2x6 and a drill and start banging them out.
While surfing looking for more stuff to spend all the magical reloading savings on. I came across a place called customreloadingtools.com
I started looking and drooling. Shoot who doesn't drool over billet aluminum things no matter how simple. I first seen the annealing tools so I plopped them into my cart. Then I hit the motherload. Billet loading blocks. percision machined billets of aluminum with 50 percise holes. A real beauty even on the interwebs. So I grab one and plopped it into the cart. the price for the loading block$29.99 a lot more than the plastic ones. But, what you get for $29.99 is a nice piece or expertly machined aluminum with the holes big enough to fit your desired cartridge from a specif family. Mine are for 223 and family. The holes as you will see below have a slight counter sink in the middle of the bottom. This is there so that there is no way the primer can rest on anything. Added safety not found in the plastic ones.
I have been sitting here for 2 hours touching it feeling it and putting in and removing cartridges from it. There is so little wobble it is amazing. This block will make loading so much easier. You can even polish it up if you like that.
I love it and more then likely I am going to end up with at least 5 more of these bad boys.
These loading blocks get the Seal of Approval from Tango. Check out customreloadingtools.com for more products.
