    Know those plastic bullet racks that come in a new box of rounds? Know how certain ones are made of a practically indestructible polymer? Well I'm working on a project and I'm in need of some such indestructible racks and unfortunately the Perfecta I can currently afford comes with cheap brittle ones. I need four or five matching black .45ACP 50 round racks. Any info on which brand is best and if you happen to have some you want to send along, all shipping charges will naturally be covered.

    Thanks.

    Dang Cic, about a week too late. I just cleaned my loading room and tossed all the trays I had been using because I replaced them with wooden loading blocks my brother made for me. When I get home this weekend I'll see if I missed any.

    You should also post pics of your wooden loading blocks.

    Tell me what brand to check, and I will give you as many as you want...
    I have most brands of ammo, maybe not as wide a variety in 45 but
    I should have what U need, Rich!

    If I knew the best brand I would be happy to tell you. They just need to be black, very durable and they need to match.

    Thus far it looks like Mighty Mole to the rescue. As a thank you here's a sneak peek at their final destination.

    Weird, but most ammo mfg use the white plastic... :D
    Most are a better grade than perFecta
    but still white. I found 3 really nice black trays with round holes
    as opposed to squared off divider style, one is a 10mm tray and 2
    are Aguila 45 ACP. I do have a rather unique looking set, 20 in all,
    nice black plastic. It's from a whole case of MAGTECH, which I do
    not mind dumping into an Ammo Can, it is a low velocity round
    that would be perfect for break in of my Kimber and any other
    45 firearms I have. Pix of the lonely 3 first, then the 20-burgers
    but shown in white... it has the funky open cell construction but
    looks plenty sturdy IMO.
    I can send the 3 but that is all I had of that style.
    Aguila 45 ACP is what those are, if you get the chance to buy
    ammo that has suitable trays :D
    I have (Tula) and Wolf steel case, but only 4 in 45 ACP.
    Black square hole trays. Wolf was black, iirc Tula was white.

    I did not get into the 40 S&W cuz that was a smaller tray in most cases, and the small trays tend to be square holes and the ones I
    saw were White. I got lucky, the MagTech was in a sealed box of
    20 x 50 round boxes, and I opened it... BINGO!
    (second pic, but black)

    If these are not suitable, I can check the 40 S&W better,
    maybe get lucky and find something in proper #s and BLACK

    Some of the brands have a large tray...


    The 20 Black 45 ACP may look more like this, in black:

    Similar open cell design. I'll get pix tomorrow.

    So you're saying this

    [​IMG]

    in black and you feel they are strong enough to be glued in place and last forever? Then they're perfect.

    If 40 is a little smaller it would still work fine.

    I like the look of these. Bet you could stand on them and they'll be fine.

    Yes, you could stand on them, VERY Sturdy.
    Only got 3 :wah:
    I will check the 40 and test fit some 45 if I find some suitable
    black trays... Is 8 enough? I will have 20 freed up, unless I
    find more of the better type black ones. ALL the other brands
    seem to have a better white tray than perfecta. Go Figure :p

    Mole likes to "get it right" :rofl: Happy Campers all around!

    BTW, open holes in the bottom, and likely the other style (20 count)
    so you will have to glue judiciously and carefully. Or Sticky Ammo :eek:

    I may have a few .40 trays like that. I think I have a .45 casing to test fit with.
