Interesting press on Ebay in .223
« on: May 02, 2017, 10:09:17 pm »
Happened to see an Ebay listing for  "  #1099 BERDON 223 cal. reloading press rare Star copy  "

Listing notes it needs work. Not sure whose copy.

I have no relationship to the item listing or seller at all.

Berdon was a local fellow.

He also made 45 ACP barrels.

This was several years ago, I believe he is "resting peacefully" now.

He used to bring his wares to the local Gun Show.

Back when I knew him his main business was making rear for clarinets, I think.  I bought one of his pistol machines.  If memory serves, and at my age it doesn't always, the rifle units had a manual powder measure.
