    can't remember who made mine. Anyone remember? I have some for 45, but they aren't spaced enough since I started using the extreme funnels.

    When I started hand loading back in the late 60's I needed a couple reloading trays. The local gun shop had a going out of business sale and I bought two plastic trays that held 55 rounds. Made sense to me, drop the powder and move the case one row so the 55 openings worked great for loading 50 rounds. I used those things for fifty years.

    A member here was making custom billet blocks and I had him make a 308 size and a 223 size with 55 holes. I believe his name was Tom but don't recall his last name. He later changed jobs and no longer had access to the CNC equipment he was using.

    The two I have are available if someone's interested. 223 and 6mm BR engraved on the sides. $50 each.
