02/22/18 I know it has been a while, but I’m back. Had a lot of problems last year, both personal and web related so it has been hard to update the site. I’m using a new host so things should drastically improve…

08/06/13: Decided to ditch the credit card processor. Had a big replica order on hold because of the slowness of the processing company. Checks and money orders are SO much easier, I think I will stick with those for now. Many new developments in the launcher world since my last news posting. I know a cirtain someone who is working on a brand new 37/40MM launcher for the masses that is sure to be very uber cool. Stay tuned for more!

10/31/12: Many new reviews on some of Reloadable Shells new products for the avid reloader. Check out the ammo reviews page!

8/21/11: A new review of Scot Pace’s finned projectiles is complete. See the ammo review section!

07/24/11: A lot of new news lately. First, the review of ASA’s adapters is complete. Please see the ammo reviews section. Also, new casings are currently being tested from Scot Pace at reloadable shells. They are similar to the M199 buckshot casing, except, they are reloadable. I’ve been advising and working with Scot on developing these for the reloader. We wanted a nice, easy to reload, powerful casing that would be capable of delivering a load of #4 buckshot with comparable power to the M576 buckshot round. We wanted a larger payload section, so you can load either buck, or flechettes. They are currently still under development.

9/16/10: We are now a customer of Authorize.net, a new payment processing service. It is needed in this day and age to have someone to help us with credit card payments, as well as virtual check payments (coming soon). We tried Gpal (Gunpal) however found this service incredibly unreliable, as well as having abysmal customer service. We are happy to once again offer our customers more options to pay. Authorize.net is a division of Wells Fargo, and, as far as banks go, is much more trustworthy than alternatives such as Gpaland Paypal.

George Confer, 212 Kelley Road Canton PA 17724.

Enjoy the photos, and the work on the advanced project is progressing.

1/30/03: New product review on 37mm booster cases!

My friend Jerry Davis helped me upgrade the reloading CD to auto-run and converting some of the files to run on more machines. It has an index system so you can find the info you're looking for fast and easy! Thanks for the input on the CD which brought about these changes, and thanks much to Jerry for making the disc the work of art I originally had in mind. If you already have the disc and want it to be upgraded to the new configuration, send me back the old disc, and I'll upgrade it for the cost of shipping only (5 bucks)!

I am continuing work on the advanced reloading CD which will extensively cover the newer high pressure, and high/low pressure casings available out there! It will have less photos, and lots more reloading photos, and I am working on getting a digital camera that I can make 3 min AVIs on to show you guys "hands on" step by step classes on how to!! Also gonna photograph and video the end results of the rounds going off!!

    Grog's 37mm and 40mm Informational CD

One new item I have added to the CD is that I have transposed the reloading guide to html format so those of you that have had problems viewing the word documents should be able to open them with your web browsers now. I transposed almost all the word documents, and the old ones are still there, in case you want to view them in word. You can see more details on the CD on the order page of this website.
