Re: Best Powder Measure for Hodgon Extreme Powders?
For LR, I am part of the weigh the charge crowd. Also, love Lee products but don't use the powder measure for extruded powder (works great for ball). My feeling is that if I go through all the nit picky prep in my components, then I am going to be just as picky during my loading. However, what I don't have a lot of is time.
I load for a variety of cartridges and hate to have to adjust the powder measure all the time. My solutions is the Lee powder scoops. Yep, the $10 solution.
I just use the scoop that is close to the weight I need, then trickle the rest. For 20 rds, it takes less time to do this then to set up the measure and do several test drops.
I have also found that the measure can vary 0.2gr which means that my loads could be almost 1/2 gr out from heaviest to lightest (usually consecutive rds). This leads to too much potential difference in the vel/pressure for my liking.
Of course, you can be really frugal and make some scoops from cut down brass and wire. Either method will get you very close.
I like to keep my weights in 308 and larger cases to within 0.1gr.
