re: RCBS chargemaster...

Five years for me too, now. No problems. I do like to check mine with my balance beam scale from time to time. So far only great results!

My only idea is the powder was so fine it went through the dispensing tube guides/mounts. A full cleaning and it was up and running. Checked it against the new unit a few times with various charges all seems good. Still strange to me how all that stuff got in it.

I wont be running any fine powder in that unit from now on. I just hope they both keep ticking like those of you who have been running them for a while.

re: RCBS chargemaster...

Do many of you use these auto feed measures for precision shooting or is it still better to put it on a beam. I shoot to 750 yards right now but am going to 1000 and past soon. I have been looking at one of these to speed up loading or at least take some hand work out of it, but did not know if they produce precise enough loads for long range or are best for short range rounds.

Thanks for any help here.

Re: RCBS Chargemaster Combo... Quality Unit

Well, what's junk to some is quality to others.

I just ordered one based on the positive experiences posted from a number of members whom are very credible.

Time for me to come out of the dark ages. One step at a time... I'll still have the balance beam scale set up in the loading room.
