Every black powder hunter needs a bullet starter.Trouble is, most starters on the market today are nothing but a large wooden ball with a couple of wooden dowels sticking out at different angles. To start a bullet with one of these, you must use the short stick first, then follow up with the longer stick. Needless to say, they don't last very long if you use them. Most hunters don't use them because most hunters can't stand them in their pockets.
The Redi-Start was designed by a hunter - for hunters who don't want to carry a purse in the woods. It is manufactured by Hubbard's Outdoor Products. It is made of brass and has a palm pad of black "Acetal" that is a big 2" in diameter, so it doesn't bruise your hand when you pound in the most stubborn bullet or ball. A must have for the hunter who uses conical bullets or sabots. Made to last for generations of serious shooters. It is made to last a lifetime of hard use and it folds up to fit in your pocket. Take it out when you need it-put it back when you are through.
