Bonehead move

I got a new RCBS Chargemaster. I read the instruction and set the unit up and calibrated it. I put in some powder, that is were things went south. I appeared to be coming out faster than it was going in. I am probably not the first person that didn't shut the "drain". What a mess! After a 20 minute clean up I got to use it. If you are thinking about geting one remember to close it before you start

I think everyone who owns a chargemaster has done that once at some point. You won't forget again to check it.

I put a label above the drain reminding me to close it.

Re: Bonehead move

You are not alone. We've all done this at least once. Some of us have done it many times.

Put a label somewhere to remind you...

Good reminder. I have known people that did the same thing during an oil change. Poured new oil right on through to ground....

Not really a bonehead move, as with many things in life there is a learning curve!
