Nope,
I'm pretty sure those are the MFCEO's practice reloads.

I have a problem with my Hundo unfortunately.  It seems like not all of the holes are machined to the same spec.  Ammo that'll fit in one won't fit in another.  Ammo that fits perfectly in my old school steel Lyman gage won't make it into these holes either.  Probably 20% of the holes are too small and they're scattered all over the grid which makes the entire process rather trying.  I tried cleaning them thoroughly but that didn't make any difference.

 

Anyone else having issues?

Email the pro shop and they will swap you out. I assume you had one with the ano?

It looks like you got one of the old ones, the new design (that is currently being sold) will be 100%.

Will do boss.  Correct, I got one of the black anodized ones.

 

Thanks!

I hear that anodizing has been a real pain the ass for a few people lately.

What is the issue?  I've case gauged around 5000 rounds of 9mm and have not had any issues with the anodizing on mine.

Anodizing build thickness and repeatability of the process can be hard to control, when you're shooting for tolerances in the 0.001" range.  The anodizer has to keep good notes on their process controls, and be consistent in how many parts are on a rack, how the parts are oriented, how the parts are attached/fixtured to the rack, time in the bath, etc.  It is surprising how many anodizers, even large ones, are inept at process control.

 

All my (bad) anodizing experiences are with hard coat.  I'm not sure if these gauges are decorative anodized or hard coated.  I believe the process is similar, but the coating thickness with decorative is much less.

Anybody with a hundo and other gauges have a comparison?  Specifically as to how pessimistic it is.  

 

For example I have Dillon, DAA, and EGW.  The DAA is by far the most pessimistic of the three.  Of the rounds that don't gauge in the DAA all but the split cases and crazy blown out 9major have gone in the EGW and Dillon without issue.  Then also fired without issue.  

 

Not really interested in something else that separates 10% of my rounds for no real reason, but dumping directly into ammo boxes is intriguing.  

 

I am also a little concerned that the guy hyping them doesn't even know what his load is...

Bought one.  Love it.  It's similar in tolerances to the EGW.  It's so fast I'll probably start gauging my practice ammo.

 

Doesn't work great with the smart reloader boxes I've been using lately.  It works perfectly with my old Dillon boxes though; it appears to be designed around the Dillon which makes sense.

I like mine, it is a little more strict than the dillon single gauge i've used, but that is fine for my OCD. Got the dillon boxes and that's cool too.

How is it for those of us that load them LONG?

I have the .40 L and love it.  Cuts case gauging time in half.  I load to 1.18 and have no issues with the .40 L.

Bump. There's a long 40 hundo but not a long 9. Will the standard 9 work for long-loaded 9 Major 2011 length rounds?

Q: Does the Hundo work properly with the 9mm MTM ammo boxes?  I don't have a Dillon ammo box for comparison.
