Electronic Powder Dispenser

Guys - I'm new to this forum so sorry if this has already been discussed.
I am trying to find out which electronic powder dispenser system is the best (trouble free and most accurate). So far I know about RCBS and Lyman. Todate I have been using a RCBS manual dispenser, throwing my loads a little short and then using the powder trickler to finish them off. Just looking to speed this process up a little.

Thanx for your input.

Re: Electronic Powder Dispenser

We use the rcbs electronic powder dispensor and have had real good luck with it. We load everything from 5.7x28 to 325 wsm and a few 357 mags. Very consistant and dependable. It loves ball powder the best as does any powder thrower but is just fine with the big extruded powders. we use everything from lil'gun to imr 7828.

Re: Electronic Powder Dispenser

where's the best place to buy the rcbs powder drop? i was looking and it seems that they are in the 360$ mark. Is that good? My shooting partner and i are starting to require better consistancy than we can get from the manual powder drop. Is the rcbs the best value? What sould we buy and where?


thanks guys

You can find it for around $300 a lot of times. You just have to look around. Look at Midway, Midsouth, Natchez, ect. If I can remember right Natchez had them for $299 a little while ago.

"i'm really looking forward to doing so real precision loading."

If you're expecting a digital dumpster to give you that you're gonna be disappointed. Precision powder charges may be the least critical element in precision handloading.
