    Or you could just keep track of the empty primer boxes....

    I bought one of those shell counters for my 9000G and it works great!

    I love the thing, and I can reload one box or twenty boxes and don't need to count anymore.

    In my opinion, a shell counter for a reloading press is about as useless as the computer gadget on some cars that tells you how many more miles you can drive before you run out of gas. Hey, I always thought that was what the fuel gauge was for. Since I don't plan to run the gas tank down to the last drop before refueling, I don't need anything any more accurate than a good fuel gauge.

    By the same token, I know it's time to reload some more shells when I look and see that my supply of loaded shells is running low. What does it matter how many I've already reloaded? If I'm outta shells, I'm outta shells whether I've reloaded one thousand or one million.

    If, for some anal reason I wanted to keep accurate track of those things, I would do as others suggest and keep a record of how many primers I buy and how many I've got left. As I recall, the number of primers used and the number of shells reloaded should be pretty close to the same number...... that is unless some of you guys use 2 or 3 primers per shell. Personally I use only one in each shell. :)

    Beats me, Haux. I guess that some people just ain't as bright as you and me, and sometimes I wonder about you. ;-)
