RCBS chargemaster combo

Working up loads for ladder test on my new 300winmag.

The more I use this thing the more I like it. So quick to go from one charge wt. to the next.I have shut it down , worked on other things, fired it back up re-weighed the previous charges .Results were the same to the tenth.The routine for calibrating it each time you turn on is so easy I can do it about as fast as setting up my 1010.

If there is one thing I might complain about it would be cleaning out the powder when through, and really thats not a big deal. The powder sticks sometimes to the walls of the hopper and you have to fiddle with it a bit to be sure and get all of it out.As I said this is just looking for some negative.
I will continue to report what my experience is with this tool. Jim

Re: RCBS chargemaster combo

I have had the same experience you do.
I love mine more with every loading session.
Accuracy is great and speed is top notch.
We've been waiting for this machine a long time. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Find it
Range it
Click it
Pull it
Dump it

If it's not far, it's boring.

Powder sticks to the sides of plastic objects due to a build-up of static electricity. Get a package of laundry anti-clings and wipe your powder funnels and powder measures down with them. Slicks things up!

Nuhh uhh,
That stuff smells too girly [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Well , anyway the static cling problem went away anyway [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

The thing that his tool excels in for me is when I'm loading consecutive 5 shot batches that are a few grains apart , "faster than a speeding bullet " [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
