I am sure most of you have seen Jim Skeel's ad about his aluminum base that replaces the piece of crap "bakelite" base that came with your loader. If not his signon name is skeeljc and the post is "PW Ezfill aluminum base". I sent a check to Jim, he got it Monday, I have my base today Wed. It is a real quality piece more like a work of art. It fits perfectly, all threads work, even has some instructions for us dummies and two new gaskets for later use if needed. My PW P2000 never worked so smooth and powder leakage free. It was the best $98.75 I ever spent on reloading accessories. Jim is a first class guy making a fist class product that works ( and it looks pretty too) I never could get my bushings out without removing the shot, powder and base because it was not made right to begin with. This one will allow me to remove the bushings without wiggling and getting frustrated. Kudos to Jim. Do yourselfs a favor guys, buy it. The only thing I ever bought for reloading that I like as well is Gary Bulleys UNLOADER

I also offer the retrofit as shown below for $45 to your existing base.

Look like fine products, but, if I don't have powder leakage and do have consistent drops, do I need one?

Pat, My "flimsy black plastic base" works just fine. So unless you have low libido and need an ego boost, or a compelling desire to collect shiny objects, you don't need one any more than I do.

One of the advantages that was not mentioned above is that on the plastic base, some powders crystalize and stick to the inside of the tube. It wont happen on a metal base. Also it operates more smoothly because there is no flex. Do you need it -you will be happy you bought one

Longshot, E3 both do for me. Longshot is the worst. It may have had a little to do with humidity or weather change. I moved my loader to the garage and thats when it started. It actually caked so hard on the base tube that I had to use a drill and wire brush. Powder flow was irregular. Whiz's base is a buy for that kind of money but I asked for one a long time ago and never heard back so I bought this one. Whiz said at the time he only got them once in a while and I decided to buy this one. I am happy with the buy

Powder sticking to the plastic base is not a myth. Cubancigar is right, Longshot is really bad, have to scrape it out of the drop channel with a bronze bore brush. I got three of Jim's bases for all three of my PW's. They are nice. I had to follow Jim's advice sheet he sends along about not turning the screws down too tight but by following his instructions they work great.
