The Shell Sorter is a simple set of products designed to reduce the time spent sorting brass by caliber, allowing you to enjoy more time reloading and shooting. The Sorters sit on top of a common 5 gallon bucket, with a few shakes your brass is sorted by caliber.
The three main calibers that most reloaders sort are 45 ACP, 40 S&W, and 9mm. We have labeled the sorters according to those three main calibers. The sorters do sort many more calibers! The following chart shows some of those calibers and the sorter pan that they end up in.
The fastest way to sort is to stack all three of the pans together with the yellow pan on top, and the black on the bottom, in that way all your brass is sorted at the same time. If you sort before tumbling as is recommended, most shells that are inside of each other will come apart with the shaking and are sorted correctly. However, if you tumble first, those are likely to jam together with small bits of media, and sometimes those require a pliers.
This value pack also includes a metal insert tray to seperate the 380ACP from 9mm.
