      Some of the more “vintage ” of us reloaders out there in all probability started out with Herters equipment and many have just stuck with it either out of loyalty for a good company long gone or the simple fact the darned stuff just didn’t seem to wear out.
      Ed Sager ” Herter Specialist ” of 14725 Plattsburg Rd. Kearney Mo. 64060 Has come out with a small book about the Herters press’s. In it he covers about all the known and documented information that there is out there on all the commonly available press’s and a couple of the less common.
      Many pictures for those of us who like to look. A great reference piece.
      Sometime after the first of the year he says he is coming out with a second book covering dies, powder measures and a few other of the Herter items. I already have my order in for two.
      Books are 19.95 each and a bit for shipping.

      Just looked in my records. Started reloading in 1962. Started out with a Herters Super Model 3 press, Mark 1 dies in 7.65 Mauser and one of their scales. Still have all of it and it all still works just fine. Have had I bet at least a dozen of the old 1891 Mausers in 7.65 through the years and cannot even imagine how many 06 cases I mashed down and cut back to feed them. I would say it is a bunch !!
      Through the many years , other than shot shell loading equipment, I think I have tried about everything Herters offered and generally for the most part it worked from OK to well, it all was serviceable though I do prefer RCBS dies now I still keep the Herters I had. The Super Model 3 press was outstanding and I still have 3 of them lined up on the bench.
      Have about half a dozen of the old catalogs and talk about a real hoot to read. Those were good days.
