    International manufacturers

    We are all familiar with the well known equipment manufacturers here in the states, such as Dillon, RCBS, Lee, Lyman, etc.

    But, what about the international market? Is anybody here familiar with any foreign reloading equipment manufacturers? While I know that the US based companies do have some international market share, I am sure that there are manufacturers in other countries that make reloading equipment for their own regions.

    I am just curious who they might be.

    Their stuff would probably be metric, and I ain't having none of that.

    I do know some shooters in Sweden, England, and Australia. They all buy US made tools but use Foreign made bullets, powder and primers. I know they talk about Cheddite and Fiocchi primers, and Vita Vhore powder. I have heard of other powders but since its not available here I did not pay much attn. DR

    Before 1997 England was well supplied with American hand loading supplies and components. After the handgun ban and further restrictions of firearms rights it all dried up.
