No matter how nicely your shotshell loader makes shotshells, there is no avoiding the "re-swelling" of the mouth of re-used hulls after they have been stored for even a short period of time. The SliX Shotshell Checker/Sizer Combo can fix that!
A "Must Have" for Cowboy Action Shotgun Competition!
Simply insert the crimped end of a loaded shotshell and twist while applying slight pressure. It is most successful when used just prior to loading your shell belt at the stage. Then flip it around and insert the shotshell into the other end to gauge the entire shell. If it easily drops fully into the gauge, is will also drop easily into your shotgun chambers.
• Solid Aluminum
• Durable Anodized Finish Inside and Out
• Knurled Exterior for Slip Free Grip
• 1.5″ Outer Diameter for More Leverage
• Available for 12GA Only
Tip! Lubricating the ID of the SliX-Sizer with a silicone rag or sizing die wax will reduce the effort needed to size your shotshells.

As usual I bought too quick!I bought the device to round out the crimp but without the gauge attached for a longer grip. No we have the combo. I suppose I could gift someone my other separate gauge, but at 83, who cares. I would like to echo that it can be an instant blister device. Use a pair of gloves.
Instant blister machineMy first experience with this device, I learned immediately to not use it bare-handed. My hand holding the base of the shell formed a blister within the first 15 rounds. My solution was to wear a leather work glove on my right hand, and for added grip, I wrapped a small piece of rubber innertube material around the shell base. A little Rem Dri-Lube spray inside the sizer was very helpful. If I didn't live in CA I probably wouldn't bother with reloading 12 gauge, or if I used a Win '97 pump instead of a coachgun. A clever well-made tool, but it might kinda' be a solution in search of a problem.
