Default Ball Starters

Guys, who makes the ball starter with the interchangable brass attachments for the powerbelt bullets? I have 2 of them and I need an attachment for the aerotip for my ramrod. I have a handfull of the ones for the HP bullets but not this one.

i'd call PB on tuesday and see if they have one for you.

pretty soon, there will be a better tip availble for the Powerbelt to control over expansion. So i heard....

I dont even use the special tip for the aerotip, just my cupped brass attachment for loading round balls.

I have a black plastic "T" ball starter made by TC. It has the replaceable tip. It kind if reminds you of the end of a cleaning rod. It works great for different bullets, you can buy the different ends, and it aligns your bullet straight in the bore. I really like it, I use it for hunting. I have a heavier brass one with a wooden handle I use it at the range. It is in the picture below.. Tom.

while your at, ask them about the thing I am talking about on your forum. save me a little leg work.

only time I using a "cupped" tip is when I am shooting an 45cal. namely, that is what I bought for it for my range rod.

other then that. just my loading/cleaning jig for 50cal.

My buddy had the same starter with all the attachments and he gave it to me. I won't be calling PB afterall. But thanks for the replies.
