Default BMT Mooner, just got one!

I have been shooting .45 moon clip guns since I was a teen ager and have tried several methods of dealing with clipping and unclipping ammo. This is a real step up in my opinion..............

Nothing better for use with moonclips, and worth every penny. I shoot five 45acp revolvers and wouldn't be without it.

If you load a lot...

it sure saves the old hand from a work out.

There is one maker that charges a little less for his product but it is not of the same quality and has to be loaded one round at a time.

This is the only way to "Fly" if you have the coins.

I like mine and consider it money well spent.
That said, I do have a few tuning issues I haven't had time to deal with yet:
I feel widening the trough an bit would help out as my brass sometimes hangs up while the bullets pitch forward and then I have to clear the jam. I also wonder about having lust one de-moon spur, you have to rotate it the whole revolution but the brass only pitches out one direction.

Exceptionally well designed & built? Absolutely! Expensive? Yes, but it’s worth every penny you pay for it. Nothing better!

I bought one just recently. Darn near $100 and they are gun specific, but they work and work WELL.

Teletech I have had the same issue of the bullets tipping forward with my 9mm version. I have found the holding it closer to level and shaking it slightly solves the problem. I guess just like shooting you need to refine your technique. Works slick as can be once you get the hang of it.
