Re: Looking to get started
"I have one question about the power measure... it it really needed if you weigh each round i was just planning on using some sort of cooking measuring scoop to pour in the scale pan..... "
There is no magic in how we get the bulk of our charges ready to trickle up. Many of us used homemade dippers made of brass cases cut to size with wire handles soldered on for a long time before Lee came out with their plastic dipper kit. Thing is, an adjustable powder measure simply makes it easier/faster by a few seconds per charge when changing powders or charge levels.
If you want to hold costs down at this point consider getting one of Lee's "Perfect" powder measures. They're inexpensive, all plastic and require some adjustment in assembly but overall they really work well after a bit of break in. In fact, they're perhaps the most consistant available at any price for dispensing the coarse tubular powders so common for rifle cartridges. (And they ARE measures, not powder "dumps" or "throwers" and you will never find one so listed in any catalog.)
