PostSubject: MAC11 Open round Loading Tool   Mon Oct 04, 2010 11:17 am

After playing with an MGC MAC11 i got tired of the messing about when trying to load the small brass plug and 5mm cap into the open style rounds so i decided to make a tool to make the job easier Very Happy  



Pulled back ready to load the cap/primer


Push the cap in


Push the primer in


Push the cartridge on


Push the cap into the cartridge


And a tool to push them out

Brilliant isn't it Question Very Happy

it's going to make loading these open MAC rds 100 times faster which means more firing time instead of fiddly loading cheers

Here`s what the original tools looked like (although this is the Luger one I believe) , the Mac ones are white plastic normally

Hi Doc,

Looking at your photos of the factory loading tool, the cap appears to be loaded into the cartridge with the powder charge facing the primer.
The MACs the first and only model I've had using Open cartridges and I've been loading them so the charge faces the Det.Pin.
Am I loading them incorrectly Question

Thanks Doc,

As always a great bit of kit and i want one, got the m76 and m39 open rounds to use one on also got 7mm cap open rounds for the ingram damn easier to load than the 5mm and you dont lose the base plate which the 5mm can do.
