Re: Clicks, I hate clicks.

Just another reason to hate clicks. Everytime I ask an old benchrest shooter that I know about a load the response is never in grains but in, you guessed it, clicks of a culver style powder measure. Which is truely arbitrary since 48 clicks on his culver measure is equal to about 53 clicks on my harrels measure.

Re: Clicks, I hate clicks.

Same lots would be more precise...8208 is hard to find. Someone mixed a bunch of half empty eight pounders and I ended up with 8 lbs of it. It shoots good unless I use one of my buddies 48 click loads...then its a little hot [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] When this happens I just move my scope a few clicks or drop a few clicks off my load.

Re: Clicks, I hate clicks.

Eddybo, nice to know how much powder you have on hand but.... Did you use the same lot of powder when comparing a Culver measure to a Harrell's measure? Whenever I change lots of powder, whether it be H322 or V133, or any other brand for that matter, I usually have to adjust the "clicks" to get the same weight as the previous lot.
I just hate to see someones' good name, as well as his product, maligned.

Re: Clicks, I hate clicks.

Sorry if I wasnt clear. The answer is yes, we were using the 8208 I described above, thus the explanation regarding "lots"

Re: Clicks, I hate clicks.

Doced,...BTW both of the powder measures mentioned are very fine equipment and work perfectly as intended by thier manufacturer. However, since "clicks" are not a standard measure...which I thought was partly the intent of this thread...I do not feel that it reflects badly on Harrels' powder measures. Lenwood Harrel is a great guy from my limited knowledge, (only reputation and a couple of phone conversations.) The culver used by my fried is an original and at least 20+ years old with lots of use, and no longer in manufacture. In any case "clicks" are not interchangable between different manufacturer's measures IMO and are very arbitrary. Even though all clicks are not created equal I highly recomend the harrels measures.
