possibly fairly recent, driven by recent desires to load self-def. shotshells.

Do away with the wad and shot-handling provisions, come up with some manner of pressed roll-crimp.

I just load them on my dad's 310 and use a small drill press for roll crimps.

Old stufferA5#1911,has a point,if you have a need for larger production rates,than this machine will work for you.I do the hand loading and drill press crimps myself,slow production rate, but cost wise,it's dirt cheap and yes the roll crimps do work just super chambering, in the auto's,

Nice machine if you like loading slugs in new unskived hulls with a roll crimp.....I did some slugs before with fold crimps and they worked well but not good enough to do away with buying factory slugs for deer hunting.

Nice machine. If I shot enough slug I would get it. But I don't.

I reload metallic, shotshells, might have to pick one of these up! Always wanted to make my own slugs.
