When charging your cases, what is the fastest method?

1. Lee Dipper
2. Little Dandy
3. Regular powder measure
4. scale (balance Beam)
5. Chargemaster, will they meter small charges of Trail Boss, ETC?

How about for bullseye, match loads, Balance beam each case?

I use my Dillon 550 for 9mm and 45acp. I use ball, flake powder so I can maintain plenty tight tolerance. I reload for target but I believe they would be fine for silhouettes also.

I have been using a Charge Master.
I had over charge issues until I implemented the "Straw Trick".

There are other Nozzle Cures if you look a few posts back.

It can also be reprogrammed, but I haven't done that.

It seems slow, but when using a single stage press, the next charge is ready about the time you have seated the boolit from the previous throw.

I use a charger for most mid range or light loads and never had a problem. If I am doing hunting loads with a full charge then
I weigh each charge just to be safe.

RCBS Uniflow checked on an Lyman balance beam every 10-20 fills. I also have a back up electric to help verify.

That's single stage.

I use an Auto-Disc on the turret (when I rarely use the turret).

UniFlow. It's quick, easy, and most handgun powders meter well enough through it.

Any kind of a powder dump will work fine, if not on a progressive press.

I use a Lee, powder through the expander die. It works pretty good.

Use my chargemaster for everything. I find if I let it warm up for a good amount of time it reduces the number of overthrows.
