I use allot of WC872 and pour it through a 24" drop tube for a compact and tight powder column. Today I charged 50 cases right from the old Hollywood measure. I then took the entire block and set it on top of the vibrating case cleaner for a count of five. The result was 50 cases with a tight compact powder column the same hight as if poured through the same drop tube.

The cleaner tub is platic, the lid is plastic, the loading block is wood and the cleaner sits on rubber feet. The motor is located on the bottom of the cleaner. I really can't see a significant spark or electrical hazard in this process.

So how does it shoot compared to using the drop tube?

I've been retro since way before retro became "retro".

My 1st post earned me a repremand about ''turning this forum into a which bullet kills the best forum'' the 2nd got me directed in a rather ......gruff manor to the stickies ,which I'd been reading while going mad w/5 shots fouling the bore bad enough to make me wonder if the boolits exited or just trowled into the grooves. 3 steel wool biscuits later and a bottle of copper remover and Hoppe's and Rem 40x and 200 plus rounds and days of scouring I found and polished the original bore/grooves and the tight .....egg shaped place under the roll stamp. If y'all don't mind I'll pass on dredging up the 1st few posts.
