    Yes it's true. By the end of this weekend I will have loaded 99,999 shell on my Spolar.

    Will the counter reset to 00000 or should I consider selling it before it wears out? Can you imagine 99,999 mile on a Yugo, Fiat, Zhiguli or AvtoVAZ.

    This Spolar looks like I ought to dust it off and if there were not a few "User errors" I would have reached 99,999 much sooner.

    Help,

    I have a Spolar and I am very satisfied with mine, I havn't loaded as much as you. This is the best loader I have ever used. Congratulation.

    100,000 shells.....That thing has to be what, 2 or 3 years old?

    Check out the one on the left. Bought that one in the mid-late 70's. Can't even imagine how many went thru it. The one on the right is newer. Around the mid 80's. GL with the Spolar.

    Careful, there...

    I have a 1970 Fiat 124B Sport Coupe with 147,000 on the original engine and gearbox. The tires have been replaced...several times.

    Hey AJ100: How high is your reloading bench? Looking to make one like yours.
    I'm 5'5" and not sure what high to make it. Dave T.

    Dave, 37" high. The swivel bar stool works great for that height.

    Rich; Let me assure you that it will keep on going only to do it again in another 100,000 and another 100,000 after that. You just knew the PW's would have to show up and try and take some of the Spolar fame.

    The Spolar is undoubtly the best re-manufacturer of shot shells on the Market.

    Rich Left- After you get your reloader broken in, post again and maybe we can give you some suggestions.

    I guess I'm with Pat...i've had the same Pacific 366 since 1979. I don't have a shell counter though.

    I guess, if I knew I had just loaded the 100,000th shell, I might take it to the club and shoot it.

    Let us know if you break the target.

    Poor me.

    I reset the counters to zero for every run so I know how many I have made.

    I will never know when either the PW or Spolar hit 100,000 shells.

    I have a Star reloader in .38 that has well over 500,000 rounds through it. Yes, the good old days when I was young; and full of piss and vinegar; and had a steady hand with decent eyesight; and shot Bullseye and ISU.
