Custom Oak Cartridge Caddies with Timer from Nando

Ammo Ammunition Caddy WSM 6mmBR Oak ammo holder custom timer

Retired engineer Alexander Müller (aka Nando-AS on our Forum) produces handsome oak ammo caddies in his home workshop. Cartridge-specific, the caddy’s holes are sized for specific casehead diameters, so your cartridges go in and out easily. There are also through-holes, allowing loaded cartridges to be placed nose-down if you wish.

Alexander, a retired engineer tells us: “As many of you have requested, I am again making the Oak Cartridge Caddies, which have worked out very well, and are durable. I am making the Cartridge Caddies out of solid oak, and finishing them with five coats of polyurethane. The proper-diameter counter-bore diameter and through-holes allow the cartridges to be placed bullet up or bullet down. All Caddies have 25 holes.”

Nando offers caddies for the following calibers: .223 Rem, 6 PPC, 6mmBR (and similar), .308 Win, 6.5-284, and .300 WSM (New). The $70 Price includes the Timer and shipping via USPS Priority Mail. (conus). You can pay by check, Money Order, or PayPal. CLICK HERE to ORDER.

About the Timer
I supply Tyler Timers, which I buy from Wal-Mart for around $5. These have served well, and besides the low price, they have a distinct advantage over other, more expensive timers. The Taylor Timers can be set and run up to your preset elapsed time, at the end of which a not-too-loud beeper beeps. However, in matches where beepers are not permitted, the Taylor Timers can be run up from 0:00, and display the time elapsed, without a beeper going off. The two other (more expensive timers) I tested (around $20) did not have this run-up, beeper-less feature.

About the Wood
I did continue to look for a viable source for affordable walnut, but was not successful. The price of a caddie made out of walnut would need to be around $90, and I did not believe that this was an attractive price. The oak went up in price slightly, as did the shipping and packaging, but $70 for the Caddie, shipped, sounds reasonable.
