Except Lymans stuff is made in China now. I do however have a Lyman 1200 that is 3 years old and it still works. I don't expect more than 2 years out of Chinese made stuff.

Look to Berry's tumbler or the same tumbler sold by Cabala's #400. Entirely made in the U.S. A. except for the motor and thats because there is no U. S. Manufacturer here that makes one.

Get the one from Cabala's and their lifetime satisfaction guarantee.

Might have to pay for a little shipping, but hey you're not supporting the Reds.

Smart Reloader, is a chinese outfit that STEALS their "designs", direct, unauthorized pure copies, crappily made.

If you care about our hobby and the industry in which they operate, you'll never spend even a penny on anything with the "smart reloader" name on it.

The retailers selling SmartReloader junk , will stop when nobody buys it ! Only someone that doesn't know their azz from a hole in the ground , would buy the stuff anyways . I don't understand why anyone would want to sell junk anyways . It's going to fail , and the guy that sold it becomes known as a junk dealer . There's no profit in the long run , I'm not even going to get into warranties , and customer service .
