Spolar Power Load Gold Premier
By Tom Roster
The Spolar Power Load Gold Premier fully progressive reloading press is without a doubt one of the very best of the new breed of modern reloading presses. And I say that from reloading experience that spans nearly 30 years. In writing reloading columns and features for various magazines, plus having authored reloading manuals both self-published and for various companies, I'm pretty sure I've worked with nearly every reloading press ever manufactured in North America. That's why it's fun to write about this super press from Spolar.
If you're after user-friendly ease of operation, the Spolar Power Load Gold Premier is the press for you. If you're after easily interchangeable tooling setups for various gauges on the same progressive machine, this is the press for you. And if you want all the above with super reliable and simple hydraulic operation, the Spolar, again, is the one. Now that's a lot of "super" adjectives, but then I'm super impressed with this Spolar product.
An excerpt by C. Scott
"My self-prescribed cure for sore shoulders(s) was... I bought two loaders and one hydraulic pump with a quick-release fitting so I could use one pump for both loaders. If you have never witnessed hydraulic loaders in action, you should. They are a dream to use. I can pump out a perfectly loaded shell about every four seconds. The only motion required is simultaneously inserting a new hull and wad, and then tapping on a foot lever."
An excerpt by Nick Sisley
I've been putting a Spolar Gold Premier .410 through it paces and even a comment like: "This is the finest reloader I've ever seen, with every desirable feature imaginable", would still be an understatement. "The Spolar operates so well because (at least one reason) of its sealed ball bearings and oil-light bushings." "I've reloaded about 1,000 .410's on the Spolar so far and have never had one primer hang-up." "The quality is better than anything you've seen to date."

What I seek is a competitive load that I can count on for consistency. I want to know, with out a shadow of doubt, that I have shells which perform the same each and every time. When in the heat of competition, and especially on the shoot-off line, I need, no demand, utmost confidence in the performance of my shell. I choose the reload produced by the SpolarGold. Why? Because when I started shooting SpolarGold reloads my scores went up. And, I noticed that none of my attention was directed to wondering whether or not I had the right shell to get the job done. I sought a soft shooting shell that delivered 1200 FPS, always. After shooting the SpolarGold reloads for several months I had them tested. All of the tests reported between 1200 to 1205 FPS, NOW THAT'S CONSISTENCY! I'm a very happy camper with my SpolarGold, it nailed my objective. Oh, by the way, the SpolarGold is the easiest, fastest, and most maintenance free reloader I've every used.

I've waited a couple of days to get back to you on the operation of the new Spolar I just started to use, thinking there would probably be some kind of a problem I couldn't handle etc.
I changed the die set over to the 20 ga. to begin with, since this is the most common shell I load. Just finished loading 3000 shells, absolutely the best operating loader I have ever used, and I have gone thru a lot of loaders over the past 35 years, beginning with a Lee hand set, thru Mec, Pacific, PW and others. The attention to detail and follow thru in manufacturing specs for this loader is just outstanding. (Outside of the vendor that makes the 3/8 ports in the 1" manifold head for the hydraulic unit.) As I told Dicksie on the phone, I loaded about 250 shells using the hand lever, just to get a feel for the machine...then hooked up the hydraulics. I loaded the first 100 shells in 7 1/2 minutes, without really working for speed. My main purpose in getting the hydraulic unit was ease of operation and alleviating my tendinitis, but the smooth flow of the loader in hydraulic operation makes loading easy, fast, and kind of fun again! Thanks for porducing such a great machine, and feel free to use me for a reference in the Midwest any time!

It is the smoothest most trouble free loader I have ever used...
I have loaded over 7000 shells not one bad one. I have had Mec-PW-Dillon. I have not made one adjustment and it loads
a perfect shell.
Thank you Spolar
