Default Has anyone used this reloading system?

I was curious about it but I cant find any manuals or info on it and the only manufacturer listing is in the UK. Any thoughts?

Never heard of them- but have not heard of a lot of things. That is a basic single stage press, electronic scale, tumbler. You still need dies and shell holders. The press is the same thead as most dies, so you could use any standard die.

I don't know if their press is any good,but I do have their electronic powder dispenser.
It works great,and is about 1/2 the price of the RCBS unit. It also has a 2 year warranty.

I have HEARD of them, but never seen one or read reviews of them. I have known of too many "C"presses breaking though. Okay for a basic "beginner's starter kit" but a seasoned reloader won't use it, unless as a dedicated decapper maybe.
Member price of $72 is about right for the tumbler, scale and smaller parts, with the press thrown in gratis.

Fairly new, lower ranging prices like Lee. Graft and Son I believe handles their line. Have not heard any bad of their product.

i bought the smartreloader tumbler SR787 from MidSouth Shooters Supply, works great. then bought the small c-frame press, use it for seating bullets only, given the fact i'm not real crazy about the mounting base on it. works great for that. i use my old RCBS JR5 for decapping, priming and resizing. a lot stronger press that i inherited from my dad. (circa 1970)! still going strong!

Default Smart reloader made in chinkland

I checked these out. They are made in china. Press is cast iron but the ram is very sloppy. As you can tell it is a "C" press which is inherently a weak design in my opinion. Do your self a favor, if you are looking to get started in reloading, purchase the LEE breachlock reloading kit. You'll have damn near everything to begin handloading except dies, brass and components such as primers etc. Check out your local Cabelas or look online at Midway USA. Been rolling my own ammo for 25yrs with LEE. Just purchased the Classic turret press for pistol rounds only. Very good and solid press. Semi progressive design allows me to load 125 rds of 45 acp in an hour. I like it! Thats it lower right next to the mauser.

Have to agree with 1982flh80.One thing to add every dime we spend on crap from China will just build up there Military.Which i believe we will have to take on some day.That's all.

try Lee Precision. they have several kits that are complete minus the dies. just add the dies in the calibers you want to reload, get your powder, primers and bullets, and you're ready to go. lee makes good equipment that is priced very well. i have several of their products and have been very pleased with them so far. if you are just starting to reload, get the book, The ABCs of Reloading. excellent book for beginners or veteran reloaders. the lee kits also come with the lee load data book, and this book has a lot of information for the begining reloader.
