Re: Best manual powder dropper?
You know everybody has what he thinks is the best powder measurer on the planet. I've used everything from the older Sinclair and the Jones to the Lyman at onetime or another. I'd have probably bought a Sinclair or a ones, but they way over my budgit at the the time. Yet I was lucky enough to get o try out several brands befor I bought my first one. I bought the Harrell because it worked like Homer Culver's measurers did, and accuracey was actually second thought. When I used the Reddings, Sinclair only offered aftermarket stuff for the RCBS and the Lyman. The Redding stuff came a little later. Sinclair put me onto the drop tubes, and looking back now; I don't know how got by without them! First ones I bought were four inch ones, and within ten days I had ordered in six inch ones. Later Fred came out with drop tubes that were cailber specific. Now I have them in 30, 6mm, and 223 caliber. I always found the stands they sold with measurers to be a little bit of a comprimise. So one day I dreamed up an adjustable stand that was also very ridgid. Don't know how I ever got by without it!
