Map Products

Our website shows two different sets of products. One set is listed under the category "Manufacturer" and another set is under the categories "Reloading Equipment, Reloading Supplies, Shooting Gear, Gun Cleaning and Gunsmithing". The products are always imported to the category "Manufacturer" and then we use this mapping tool to add the products to the "Reloading Equipment, Reloading Supplies, Shooting Gear, Gun Cleaning and Gunsmithing" structure.
