Fascinating site regarding antique loading tools


Recommended Posts

Thanks Dave. That’s some great history.

 

Now, here’s a question for everyone checking out those early hand loading tools. 
 

Which tools would you choose to do your hand loads if you were living back in the early 1900’s?

 

I like the looks of the Winchester reloading tools, but that equipment from Ideal is the real humdinger. ;)

The sheer number of choices is a testament to how important reloading, and shooting in general, was at that time in our history.  
 

How far we have come...

I'd likely go with the one made by the same company that made the firearm.   Or that came witvit.

VERY cool find, Dave!  :)

 

I have an Ideal No. 1 Bullet Lubricator and Sizer.  Elegant little thing; I haven't used it in years, but I have used it a lot.  :blush:

Years ago, early 80’s. A neighbor of mine in his late 80’s offered me his Ideal reloading equipment. This stuff was old and well used and I was young and dumb about things like this, but I thanked him and declined. 
I truly had no room to use it and had nowhere to put it. 
Knowing what I know now I would have gladly taken it then taken him to a great steak dinner some place.
