Thread: Sage Outdoors for Gas Checks

  1. #41
    I have had all sorts of trouble with a Ranch dog mold for the 45/70 finding good checks that fit. I ordered Sage's aluminum checks (they were out of copper) for the .458 and they fit and crimp on great. I ordered some for a 9mm ranch dog mold, and they work great too.
    I'll never buy a Lyman or Hornady check at the prices they want when I can get Sage's checks much cheaper! I see no difference in quality.

    I have had many dealings with James Sage and crew. He bought many tools (perhaps a hundred) from me starting at .224 to the bmg over the years until he went full bore with a check making machine he needed to revamp. Honest man period. The highest quality products were always his concern. Charlie

    The Hornady checks have shorter sides and do not crimp as tight as the Sage gas checks or Gator checks in my experience.
