My son in law reloads his own ammo. My text message went off on a Saturday morning asking for these so I had to whip them together for him. 9mm, 45 ACP, and 30-06. He’ll probably want others. That’s a lotta holes.

These are actually on my list (for myself) lately, and I absolutely love that design – minimalist, but still some flair. I’m totally going to copy those. NICE!

Custom is good. You can make the holes a tad deeper than factory trays for the tippy 30-’06s and get some more finger room for the smaller rounds.
Great job on drilling! I love those feet.

Very nice—I lot more attractive than the average plastic fair reloaders have to choose from.

Great job Mike. I’ve been thinking of getting into reloading too. This is going to help push me over that edge! They really are beautiful!

Nice work. I like 60 holes on mine to the cases are separated as I prime, fill and process them.

Couldn’t you just have bought some ”Swiss cheese” wood?.... chuckle
My son in law could as set, I’ll check with him and copy your design, if you don’t mind.
