Powder Thrower

Any Sugestions for a good Powder Thrower?
I am presently using a RCBS and it keeps on rusting up.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Powder Thrower

The RCBS Chargemaster electronic scale and powder dispenser is excellent.

Re: Powder Thrower

The RCBS Powder measure is a quality unit in my opinion. I've used two of them for 13yrs so far and I'm quit satisfied with it. If it's rusting up then you need to store it in a climate controled area.

I also have a Hornady LNL Powder measure, which has an aluminum body, but the rotors are steel. I've experience a little rusting on it, but that was solved by storing it in the house.

Re: Powder Thrower

I have used a cheap Lee unit for the past 12 years and it works very well with extruded powders. It's almost entirely made of plastic and I may have gotten lucky, but it has very good repeatability when you do everything the same every time. The chargemaster with electronic trickle is a sweet setup that I'll probably switch to someday.

Tjbill, I've heard good things about the lee measure. What is the largest throw it will make of the magnum powders? H1000, h50bmg, etc ?

Thanks,
AJ
