Powder measure help please

A little help here please. I'm going back to loose powder from pellets and I dug out my old adjustable powder measure but couldn't find the instruction for the measuring lines. I was thinking of making a nonadjustable measure. Anyone have any good ideas for a 110 gr charge? Or if anyone would be kind enough to give me the measurements off their measure. I'm guessing .500 by X deep.
Thanks guys
Tim

    I'm not going to guess that's why I asked.

    My measure is .5"x 2.75" for 110g.

    It is .5" x .25" per 10g.

    So, 110/10=11

    11x.250"=2.75"
