    E-mail me and I will send you mine to see how I label mine and you can change out the data, and i will send you a blank if you want to configure it your own way.

    My teacher wife made it up for me. It uses microsoft Word. I will also send the type of label it uses, so everything will match up when you print.

    Just change the info and you are all set. Each sheet will make around 45 labels I think.

    drop all xxxx's, front and back.

    Doing them in MS Word can't be any easier...

    You can do a full sheet in a heartbeat. You can add graphics and even print them in multiple colors.

    I have a template if you want it.

    I buy stick on labels at walmart and write in the info. I have also been known to use 1 gallong buckets to put shells in and write on the outside of the bucket what they are. It saves space.

    The Avery label web site will give you a free downloadable program that matches all of your labels if you want it. Word is also easy. Saved the labels on my hard drive, print a bunch ahead of time and they are ready when needed.

    I only load three different shells. One for singles, one for handicap and the third one for my first shot of doubles. I have some small stick on labels that I cut even smaller. My labels read- 16 , HC , and 1. At the club, I am not interested in what is in the shell, only what the shell should be used for.

    Computer-generated labels would probably impress people if anyone saw them but me. I find it a lot cheaper to simply buy packs of permanent folder labels at Staples. They are long and wide enough to contain my recipe number, shot weight and wad and primer data on one line and the date of each reload on the other. Dating them makes it easy to identify a specifc batch if I should discover a foul up in the process later on.

    FlaLagarto,
    One night I wrote flour on my label for shot. I used this box for a Ponderosa shoot. If I did miss, they all excused me. When I won the shoot, they banned the remainder of the box for the night. They all wanted to take a shell home and cut it open. A lot of cheap laughs on a hot summer night. ROFL

    John,
    If they are all the same except for shot size why waste the ink and time to write "1200fps"?


    Labels? I don't need no stinking labels!! (at least for trap loads)

    I shoot the AA red shells for practice and the purple GM's for registered; and Mary shoots the green STS shells.

    "Featherlight" loads for Cowboy shooting get packed in plastic boxes from Berry Mfg.

    For "test" loads I use the stick on labels from Midway and hand write - not enough "volume" to justify anything more sophisticated or less expensive.

    KISS principle.

    Magic Marker and a roll of masking tape. If you need two lines, just add another strip. It doesn't get any easier.....

    Flalagarto- Jerry, Was the shoot you set around mis labeled shells the same one that you washed out a Budweiser can and filled it with coke and walked around the club drinking from the can? Or wait, maybe I was the smart alack who did that.
