While I initially thought “gimmick” the logical portion of my brain housing group immediately jumped to the practical implications of having a wooden storage box. I might (finally) have something to store those awkward hulls in efficiently.
Sadly, the box will only be available for a single loading, the size 8, 1 & 1/8 ounce, 1145 FPS loading. For most, this is good news but I like the heavy loads for competition. Regardless, its a solid step in the right direction and a solid improvement over cardboard.
