Pats Reloading Closing down!!!

I heard thru the grape vine that Pat Mcdonald is thinking about closing shop after he sells off what he has left!! I am pretty confident in my source!! Not sure what else to say other than I thought I would share this information! I am kind of at a loss because I have delt with them for years and always thought that Brian would take over the business!! However, my source tells me otherwise. I am thinking about calling Pat and asking him about it
but do not want to ruin a friendship over it!

I am going to call Pat Monday and ask him what his plans are for the Business! I can't let this sit, I need to hear it from Pats mouth!
and I will let you know!

Most of the values have just about all diminished.

I recall not being able to control myself going through Pat's plain grey wrapper inventory. Often - $ 500.00 + orders !

Remember those IIRC - $ 54.99 / M of RA61 62 67 brass ? Virgin yet !! (less than two years ago!)

Don't you guys think that Pats sources are drying up ?


Aside - What ever happened to Hitech Reloading in St Lou Mi. (?)

History ? Last time I had looked at their site, it was about dry. ~

De-mill is pretty much dried up so the prices are going pretty much up to match the commercial!!

Just spent about 1/2 hour on the phone with Pat. After next year he is retiring for sure!! If Brian decides to continue is up to him but it sounds like he may not!

So, 2008 will be more than likely it for Pats reloading!! Unless Brian decides to take over!

Smile Pats Reloading Fine, Not going anywhere

I am not sure how this started, But as most people know my Son Brian McDonald has been running the business since 2010, He is located in Kimbolton, Ohio. PatsReloading.com, 330-833-4360, He relocated there after we had to move the Powder Magazines in 2010, Pick-ups are welcome but please call first,, I miss everybody at Knob Creek but my wife does the driving because of health problems, thanks Pat

Just thought I would update the thread. Pats is still up and running and Brian is at the helm. Just bought a stock of 308 brass and bullets from him. My first time ordering from him and I found him to be very nice and easy to deal with.
