    Great tool. Learn how to program and its even better. Lots of tips on accurateshooter. Going to purchase a second to really speed things up. No cons unless you are super measuring anal. Winthin 1/2 grain they are great.

    How long does it take for the RCBS to warm up after turning it on?
    Are you guys adding a straw to the end of the powder chute to help with powder flow?
    How long does it take for the RCBS to dispense a programmed load?

    My dispenser takes 10 minutes to warm up.
    Mine dispenser is fairly accurate when dispensing.
    Mine dispenser takes quite a while to dispense a programmed load.
    Thanks

    I normally let it warm up 20-30 minutes, then check accuracy/reset.

    The straw works well, need to experiment with cut angles for best performance.

    30 seconds on average, that's after speeding up the settings.
