    Landy88, those tools have been around my place for years, especially for the old hyphenated calibers (45-70, 32-40, etc.) I like them so much I made a special miniature arbor press to use them. Just wait until you start trying to find them in some of the more obscure calibers!

    And, it is also a good object lesson in why we should only use soft(er) faced mallets with hand tools.
    I have been collecting these for years. Since I usually buy bunches at a time, I have many of the obscure calibers. Some have boxes, many don't. Some have push rods and some don't. My measuring push rods to put with them leads me to believe there are generic sized rods rather than a specific rod size for each caliber. I even managed to sort them out and inventory them so I can find them.

    You can easily judge the character of others by how they treat those who they think can do nothing for them.

    No 338 Win Mag. That is probably too new!

    dsh1106, you can probably get something very similar, with better tolerances and better materials from L.E. Wilson co. It just won't be at ebay or garage sale pricing.

    The previous Lee Loader pics left out the MRC part of that lineage, the Improved and Unitized loaders.

    While I wanted to try a whack-a-mole loader I never fully liked Lee's priming and bullet seating combo for either, awhile back I found and bought this MRC Improved to begin to scratch my mole whacking itch. Nice tool set, and I think actually improved.

    Landy88, the MRC unit you show, along with Lee’s Target version (Zero Error?) of the “whack-a-mole” type sets represent the pinnacle of development in the genre. Once you get secure priming taken care of, the rest is a piece of cake!
