Simple loading stand

Built this several years ago out of scrap oak I had laying around for my Uberti/Colt/Walker.

Works very well! (note the felt for the barrel & grip and the hammer notch to keep it stable).

Wish I had seen this thread earlier.

I just spend $35 on a cylinder loader from S&S Firearms. It's junk.

Any of these loaders that swing the ram on an arc will not seat bullets squarely into the cylinder. There is no provision for adjusting the position of the cylinder, either, so my ram doesn't even start off square.

I'm liking the Black Dawge loader mentioned above. It has adjustments for the cylinder position and the ram moves on a straight line.

My loader showed up thursday and I didn't get to give it a try til yesterday...it's been snowing and raining and cold here, but I finally caught enough of a break to get out in the yard for a few minutes and fire a few shots (18 shots was all I took the time to shoot, I hate the cold). I bought this from ebay, the sellers name is deanflip7,

hope this link works...

I think that this is the same guy from powder inc. (black dawge) at this link:

But I really like the loader, it's built tougher than the ones I found at cabela's and it doesn't load in an arc like some people have complained about. The ram is built to press straight down so it should load a conical straight in...I haven't tried them yet because I shot all mine up and haven't gotten to cast any new ones yet.

I mounted the loader on a piece of 3/4in ply that I sanded, routered the edges to a round over, and wiped down with mineral oil.

and I went out and shot a few round balls...the flyers are my fault, jerked the trigger, in too much of a hurry because it was getting dark on me

So far no problems and I like being able to load off the gun, at first pass it seems to be quicker than using the built in ram because I can set six balls in place and ram them down one right after the other.

Looking good I like the bowling pin, I tried the real ones years ago visiting my brother in law, my hi power would knock them over but not off the table they would just spin! The old 1911 cured that, be fun to try with a C&B 44.
