Re: RCBS vs. Hornady Electronic Powder Measure

I can't speak for the other brands. But, I have been very please with the RCBS which I purchased based on the following review....

Digital Powder Dispensers -- RCBS ChargeMaster, Lyman 1200 DPS, PACT test review with accuracy, speed, warranty, reliability tests

It's fast, easy, accurate, and I can switch powders with no hassle.

    You may be waiting a long time. I sent my PACT electronic powder measure in for repair on October 9, 2010 and I have yet to receive it (as of March27, 2011).

    I have the RCBS and have been very happy with it for the last 6 years. No experience with the Hornady.

    if you measurer is 6 years old, then it probably was built by Pact. Where was it made?

    You may want to give them a call. I received mine a week or so ago and it is much faster and working very well.

    I have given them numerous calls over the past 6 months and have gotten nothing but one excuse after another and not even a guess at when I might receive it back. I will never knowingly own another product made by PACT. Unfortunately I also have one of their professional chronographs. With the prairie dog season approaching fast I was forced to order an RCBS set up. If they ever repair mine I will have a spare or a great offer for someone in need!

    you must be calling a different number than most everbody else. I've had excellent service out of them for the last 12 years. That chronograph is about as good as it gets I might add.
