Re: Powder Thrower

I can second the Chargemaster recommendation. Some of the best money I ever spent.

I also have an RCBS Uniflow and like it too for certain applications (generally not long stick powders).

However... if the rust is your problme I'm not sure that a different brand or model is goign to sort this out. You need to look at where you store it and maybe mount the measure on a little plank, attach it to the bench with a C-clamp and remove and store it somewhere that's less humid when you are done.

I've never had a Lee Perfect Measure, but I've heard good things about them and maybe they are less steel and less inclined to rust.

Re: Powder Thrower

I can throw powder about as far as anyone I know, but I use and love an old Redding Mod. 3 powder measure. It's steel and iron so rust will still be a problem.

Lee's little "Perfect" measure is mostly plastic and has a good reputation for measuring consistant charges of coarse powders, it may very well be your best bet.

"The chargemaster doesn't rust.'

Yep. Costs a small fortune but it's mostly plastic so rust is no problem.

Re: Powder Thrower

Thank you for all of the input, A friend told me about a Harrell's Precision powder thrower. Do any of you know about the quality of these?

Re: Powder Thrower

The Harrell quality is superb. It's virtue is the Culver metering system; uses "clicks" to gauge charge. The BR people love them, but they really won't do anything that any top quality mechanical measure can't. Wouldn't count on them not rusting, either.
