Default Interesting little loading accessory

Got these in the mail today. My callus on my palm is finally softening up and so this i found to be an interesting accessory for the field.

I only shot my Optima 3 times today at 100 but had a heck of a group. The palm pad as i call it worked nicely and i never felt the ramrod digging into my palm.

I figured since its light weight and non bulky, just throw it in my pocket during hunting season and save my cold hand some pain LOL.

Interesting little gadget. Looks like you could do the same thing with any piece of leather like an old boot tongue or something.

Palm Savers are great.... I have been using them in the field for quite awhile now.

I am sure most of you have seen this common wood 'Palm Saver' and my feeling are that it would work better than the leather one especially if you need to tap a little on it to seat the load or PRB.

Another way to go here is just go to your local hardware store and puchase a large wood cabinet door knob, drill out the screw hole to fit your ram rod.

The one that i really like for hunting is the old fashioned TC 'T' Handle. The best part about it, it also strores your 209 primers in a nice water proof pocket.

Both of these drop in your pocket and work very well, easy to find and quick to use.

I like the TC Handle. Works for me and like mentioned if you need to tap it to seat a load.

I like this one as its flat and flexy. I have the wood palm saver but they are bulky in my pocket or even my possibles bag.

A golf ball with a hole drilled in it works great.

almost anything will work as a palm saver. I like the T handle palm savers, but I have an old door knob that I use also. At first MD I thought you had an old two finger protector for a bow.

My spinjag bullet starter also works as a palm saver.
