Default Anyone using a Lane's Hand loader?



Advertise Here

We have a nice selection of 12ga and .410's around the house, and while I could reload all day with my MEC for the 12 ga to stock up, I can't justify the 169.00 they want for the .410 dies for the volume we shoot of them. It was suggested that we look for an old Lee Handloader kit, but haven't come across one in .410 yet.

I came across this handloader kit by Lanes
http://lanesreloading.co.cc/

Anyone have experience with this setup?

I'm thinking we'd just reload what we shot hunting Turkey, etc. on the property.

You can find the Lee Loader's on ebay pretty cheap. 410 is a little harder to find, but they are out there if you watch for them. Also check auction arms and some of the gun auction sites for them.

Yeah, I see a lot of hand loaders for the caliber I'm NOT looking for online and at our gun shops. I'll keep looking for them as well as more info on this lane.

Thanks.

Also, there was a really good article in the July/August 2011 Backwoodsman about making your own .410 loading tool for a couple bucks.

Thanks Doughboy!

I love the nail and dowel method, love the simplicity. I could get that package scrounged for, built up and dialed in faster than setting up Bullets~n~Beans Dillon for .45 run!

Most appreciative.

Default lane loaders

Yes i have used a lane loader and they are of very poor quality,they do not do what they claim they do the tool will not crimp the hull at all and the only thing the entire tool will do correctly is deprime a hull that is it,I would not wast your money on it as you are better off getting an old Lee hand loader as that is what lane sends with it's poor quality aluminum tools is a copy of lee's hand loader instuctions.

yes,they are not worth any money at all as they do not work,they are made out of cheap aluminum and dent easy,they do not crimp at all,the only thing a lane reloader will do correctly is deprime the hull and the the depriming pin starts to mushroom over on till you have to grind it round again then so many times of that (about 50) then you dont have a depriming pin left.I would go with a Lee hand loader.

I use a Lane loader and find it works fine. It takes a little practice to get the shells to crimp well but this is true for the Lee Loader as well. Also some brands of hulls work better than others. It's light and easy to carry in my war bag. I like the simplicity and it takes very little force to reload 410 shells.

Default lanes reloading kit

owned one for 3 years in 12ga 2-3/4 inch, never reloaded anything before. self taught lots of info on google and youtube. First few were bad but now most crimps are descent. even started making blank loads and less lethal of rubber buckshot using red dot and short wad. lots of fun, always be safe.

Can't say about the Lane tool, but
a friend loaned me his set from Paco Kelly and when I have the spare cash, I'll get my own.

Worth every penny.
