Cylinder Press by Powder Inc
« on: March 18, 2016, 01:14:30 PM »
I have been unable to locate Powder Inc on the web, they make or made a fairly popular model of cylinder loading press.  Anybody know if they are still around or who a reseller of them might be if so?

Their website is  www.powderinc.com   It appears it is either not working right now or they have taken the website down.

Powder Inc had a major website crash and they are still trying to get back up. You can call them toll free at this number: 877-833-1799.

Thank you, didn't get interested in a press until recently and their website errors made me wonder...good to know they are still around.

Dick Dastardly is also a source for round ball molds with six cavities.  I believe the only source for those molds.

Hi Bishop, I agree that the Tower of Power is an excellent loading press. I use mine all the time.

That's new!  THey talked about it several years (maybe a decade) ago but were unable to master the machining.  I like the price too.

Dixie GW has a decent cylinder press (fer $45 + s&h), you can see a pretty good picture of it here.

You can get Lee's six-cavity molds over at Track of the Wolf's site too (shoot, fer that matter you can find them on Ebay sometimes, the 6-cavity round ball molds I meant)! Was thinking of gitting' these fer the molds I have (a .457 rb Lee and a .456 240gr. Kaido Ojamaa mold, both 6-cavity).

Both of those "new" molds should last me a bit following these simple steps!
