Thread: I've only gone and done it!

    I've only gone and done it!

    Just splashed out on an RCBS Charge Master Combo from the states. Its Pay day!!

    At best I will save 130 rather than buying it from a UK stockist. At worst 60!


    I figured 300 odd rounds and the machine has paid itself off.

    Just wanted to gloat! Sorry

    Good for you mate, I get all my reloading gear from the states and save money every time. In fact I dont know why anyone buys stuff in this country.

    This will give you a fairly good idea:

    I got mine from ebay from a store called "RC Store". He seems to do quite a lot of sales to the UK and has a glowing record, so thought it would be woth a shot.
    The last two items i have had through from America got through without having to pay any charges so even if i do get stung, i think it will even out. Its just like train tickets!

    Well, I'm going to load for my brother and another friend so in a weak moment gave the credit card a bashing!

    Not wishing to overstate the bleedin' obvious - but make sure when buying from the US that the voltage is correct for the UK otherwise it is a trip to Maplins (other shops are available) for an adaptor?

    The Chargemaster is the best bit of reloading kit I have but can I suggest the Lyman powder pan to go with it because it does away with the need for a funnel. Much quicker?

    Info here

    and the reviews are worth reading.
