    I went through my old shells just yesterday and cut up about 300. Saved a lot of primers, powder, wads and shot. I use the best and it is called the "UNLOADER" call Gary, you wont be dissappointed

    Ditto on Gary's "UNLOADER". Not only does it work like a finely crafted tool, it also looks great just sitting on your loading bench.

    I just received my Unloader from Gary Bulley and have already recovered shot and primers from over 200 faulty factory shells... already recovering its cost... plus its handsome! I bought the Maple and Gary added a Remington head stamp - my Go2 hull...

    My Benelli is the best unloader in my opinion.

    Talk about excellent craftsmanship...

    The best unloader I ever used, bar none (and yes I have some wood models) was made by a guy named Joe Rossman and sold on this site several years ago. I bought one of the last when he was liquidating. All billet aluminum, anodized, uses replaceable utility knife blade. I used this one to recover the components from 28 flats of reloads I acquired from the estate of a cub member:<center>

    One twist and the shell is cut.

    I don't have a dog in this fight BUT. I have no idea if the blue one is available or for how much. Why waste your time looking? The Unloader from Gary Bully is the one I use. I can testify that it works! and to make the pot even sweeter is and will always be the best looking one on the bench. Several different kinds of wood and in right or left hand versions. How in the world could you go wrong. Paul in GINebraska. The Unloader works.

    OK,another reason why I'm going with the Unloader,,,I mistakenly contacted Gary a while ago saying my blade was dull(3yrs use) He said he'd replace it free with a stamped return envelope sent to him.Mean while,,Dummy here realizes by looking on bottom of the one I have it wasn't his,but the afore mentioned brand in my first post.I e-mailed the contact for that one about cost of new blade.To put it simply,,I'm still waiting for an answer.And after my post Gary responded,in Caps...I jokingly said I'd think of buying one from him when my feelings healed after he Yelled at me.He apparently pulled his post that I refered to,,How can you NOT follow through and not buy his product when he acknowleded MY sensitivity(even though I was joking somewhat)So,I sent him my response on a PM and will be mailing check tommorrow and will patiently wait for one of his creative piece's of Art that funtions as well as it looks,,I'm sure.

    The Unloader is as important as a good scale to a shot shell reloader. I as you know have one all I can do is tell the truth. Paul in GINebraska.
