1) The static buildup in your vacuum, or the sparks from the motor can ignite the powder. If your bag has accumulated any amount of powder, this could be very unpleasant.

2) See #1

Cool, thanks for the info. I'll give it a try tomorrow.

Do what you want...I just don't do things that labels of any hazardous or flammable material tell me not to. But I'm also the guy that wears eye pro when reloading.

Re: Rcbs charge master ???????????

Need to look up the Triboelectric Series. You will find that PVC's, rubber et. al. are on the bottom of the list meaning they are the LEAST likely to discharge static electricity. That is mainly what most shop vac hoses are made of.

After all they wrap electric wire in PVC or something similar

More dangerous to load while standing on carpet and the static electricity accumulated in your body to discharge onto your brass

Once saw a video where a bunch of black powder was blasted by an electric arc and it did not ignite

Re: Rcbs charge master ???????????

I watched an excellent video on YouTube on modifications to the RCBS ChargeMaster about 6 months ago. I think it was by LoneWolf USMC or 8541 Tactical. He has a channel on YouTube that is pretty good.
The video went step by step thru several different modifications to the unit. You can change how close the motor spins on the faster setting, then medium, and the slow trickle to get to the correct weight. It was a great video sorry but I can't find it right now. I'll try and find it later and post a link.

Programming helps, straw helps, disturb pan for re-measure.
I found the best fix in an analog potentiometer adjustment for speed:
