Re: electronic scales /powder tricklers

I have the new lyman 1200 and wouldn't trade it for anything! It has good speed and almost every load I have checked ( all of them at first and only a few here and there now ) has been perfectly on the money according to my beam scale. It takes around 20 to 25 seconds for a large load likw 7rum ( 90 + grains per load ) but is still a little faster than by hand I think. On loads such as .243 and 22.250 it is amazingly fast. I have no experience on the RCBS so I cant comment there. I will say I have enjoyed loading a little more since I got my Lyman 1200. I think you would enjoy it!

Re: electronic scales /powder tricklers

I was sceptical at first but now love the ease of pushing a button and letting it do the work for me. I still use my beam from time to time when I am only making up a few test rounds with different powders. If they all work as well as the one I have any brand will be a welcome addition to your bench!

Pact would run in the 20 sec area like the Lyman. The new dispenser (or updated old one)makes time by running at a higher speed until it gets close, than slowing down until it is barely dispensing. Like the Lyman, my loads are usually dead on. I guess it comes down to the best value when you go to buy.

Re: electronic scales /powder tricklers

I have had my Pact Electronic dispenser and scale for about 4 years. And I have had no complaints.I leave my scale plugged in all the time and calibrate it a few times a year.
Here are some pix of the system I have worked up for speeding things up. It takes about 10 seconds to dump 90 grains.I press the dispense button and once it starts dispensing I dump roughly 50-80% of the charge.And the trickler finishes it off.If your trickling under 30 grains it doesn't speed up the operation much.

I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend this dispenser.

My brother-in-law has the Lyman one piece and it works good, but it's really too soon to tell how long it will last.
Good luck.
P.S save your money and don't buy the RCBS, your paying a lot of money for green paint.



I thought I would throw in 4 of my favorite cartridges
from left to right,7MMRUM,7MMWSM,260AI,6MMBR.
