    i hate to just join up and start askin a bunch of questions, but i havent seen any talk of it in the past topics.......

    what do u know about it? i know u dont really need it for the rifles, but i do mostly shotgun stuff (mostly 10ga) and theres really no way to tell what psi u got.

    it would be nice to have and i am prob going to get one sometime so i can make 8ga loads and try different powders in the 10ga.

    any thots?

    I have one and IMO, it works well and is easy to set up.

    I do agree that for standard rifle cartridges there may be very little need for this, but working up wildcat loads I think that it can save you a lot of worry about pressure and a lot of time can be saved with the ability to jump powder weights with confidence.

    The price is modest, and I believe it to be a good value.

    I've got it and wish I would have spent the money elsewhere. Maybe I'm just too stupid to get it to work right, but I've been through 2 of those $25 strain gauges and have not once got an even pressure curve.

    I'm not saying it does not work. I want to try it one more time before I say that.

    If I recall, the person to email is Jim Ristow ( or something like that ). He will get you on track very quickly. I had pulled a connection loose and could not get a trace. They mailed a new cord the next day.

    I've talked to Jim on a couple of occasions. I've just been to lazy to call him back on this issue. If I were a betting man, I'd bet that he can get me going as well. Super nice guy and full of good info!!
