It's really easy trig out the hole locations for a bolt circle. The Machinery's Handbook has a chart and formula where you just plug in how many holes, the diameter of the BC, etc. I've seen a similar chart on a website somewhere too.
I have a rotary table but don't often put it up on the mill to drill an equally spaced bolt circle. It's too heavy!
I really don't think that would be too handy I agree with Ken haveing it drop in your palm would not be too handy.
Now if you come up with a neat inline loader I might try it.
Did you ever get the base on yout sight worked out?
Yesterday on a Airgun retailers web site I say a pellet dispenser that looked like an aluminum bic pen. You used it to load pellets directly into the bore. It looked like it would work only for break barrels though due to the fact that it was to long to stick into a bolt action or the open chamber of a side lever. I looked for it today when I read Ken's post but could not find it.
On the red dot, no I have not been able to make my mount work by flipping over the side plates. I think mine is built differently. If you have a mount I would like to get it from you.
How your setup can possibly be less cumbersome (Overall) than the one I described. Do you actually LIKE that tumor growing on the side of your guns? Don't it get in the way, get knocked off, etc? Aint it still a pain to use (Having to open up the lid and all?
You seem like a practical person, but do you have a footlocker glued to the passenger doors of all your vehicles? Certainly would be handy....
I guess, like the man said, Vic, there's no disputing that Gus is in the east.

Just in case you're really interested, the routine of:
> Pop the lid.
> Pick a pellet.
> Load the pellet.
> Close the lid.
Is a routine that becomes ingrained.
And actually with the pistols you don't have to close the lid between shots. It's even more convenient (I find) than an open pellet tin on the bench. Of course that doesn't work so well with springer recoil!
And no. A well positioned pellet box doesn't get knocked off.
Try it. You might like it. Really. Hold your nose if necessary.
