Re: Powder dispencer question

The powders that I am running are H-4831SC, H4350, and RL-17. All of which are the log based typed of powders. These are the same powders that I have been using for several years now. I have tried different throw sequences from 1 to 4 taps on the down stroke to see if that would help. I have not tried any taps on the up stroke yet. It seemed to help some but I would still get the occasional throw being off. It was also suggested that I get a baffle but that did not seem to make any difference. I guess my next best bet will be to pull it apart and give it a could cleaning.

Re: Powder dispencer question

the only mechanical measurer that will throw stick powders worth a damn is the old Belding & Mull. Sinclair used to sell some upgrades for the Redding 3BR and 30BR, and I do recommend the bottle adapter kit. Also try different lengths of drop tubes. But in the end you will have to trickle the final half grain of powder in the pan. It's just the nature of the beast
