    Does any body own a RCBS ChargeMaster 1500 Powder Scale and Dispenser Combo 110 Volt? How well does it work? Does it throw charges accurately and fast?

    Mine has for 4 years and running

    Sometimes it will drop .1 or .2 grains over but just take a small scoop and scoop out a half dozen granules and it will be exact

    Adding a cut off straw to the end of the dispense tube will decrease overruns

    Its the greatest thing since sliced bread. On the occasions that it doesn't throw a charge dead on accurate...its so close it doesn't matter. .1 or even as much as .2 grains isnt going to cause me any trouble at all.

    I dont know how I got along without it.

    I think it was the best reloading investment that I ever made.
    I checked the accuracy with scale weights. I weighed my scale weights on a pharmaceutical grade scale. The weight difference between the charge master and the pharmaceutical grade scale were nill. The difference being literally a half a stick of powder.
    It is fast and the measurement is right on the mark.
    Get it!
