Thanks for all the info guys.


The "T" range rod is Aluminum and comes with NO Charge Height Indicator or Bore Guide.

The "Ultimate" is Stainless steel. It has not been that long ago that this rod was around $75.00....

The Ultimate Range Rod is by far the way to go.

Some info. that you might like to read:

They offer both in 45cal.
Knight

A couple of years ago I bought a case of 12 of the 50cal Aluminum T-Handle Rods, I gave 8 of them to some of my friends and kept 4 for myself. Everyone I gave them to loves them, I'm going to order a couple of the Ultimate Range Rods(45 & 50)before spring for myself to use.

i have a screw on t-handle for my triumph .i use it on the bench.
my bone collector came with the power rod which also works fine. i just wonder about getting in a hurry reloading while hunting and not getting it folded out of way and shooting the t off.

I have been using them on dozens of rifles(personal guns and test rifles),on probably over 30 hunts on three continents, with a lot of very hasty reloads, and it never happened. Not that it cant, I watched Tony Knight shoot his ramrod at an antelope once(talk about recoil) so feces does occur,but its not likely..
