    I got tired of looking at my old 8lb kegs lying around, so I put a couple of them to use. It holds about 750 wads, I may make one for hulls now.

    Cutting just the spout area from a keg and leavi the handle does wonders as a kind of smaller five gallon bucket! Wash the powder residue out and there yah go! Hold approx 150 shells or so too!

    5 Stand Dan,

    I saw a hopper on here last week that sombody had made from a pet feeder. These are bot reall good ideas and useful. So useful---I think I'll infringe on the patents and make one for me.

    Good job man.

    Chuck

    Hey Guys,

    If any of you want one of these, I'll make you one for free. Just send me 16lbs of ClayDot.

    Heres my creation, looks like a little more work than some 8lb kegs, but oh well. Got the idea off of here so thanks to whoever posted it.
