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 :D

Thanks

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!

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?

and the reviews are worth reading.
