    The dipper is just a transfer tool to save time to load the scale pan? Is that not what some of us are intending? I started real high tech back in 1975 at the wee age of 19. I used a small bowl and dipped my powder out of with a plastic...

    I am really sold on the Lee Classic Cast Turret press as well. My only reservation that applies to all turret presses is bullet seating alignment in rifle rounds and in particular varmint rounds. While my goal is to acquire a Forester Coax some...

    Three44s replied to a thread 30 WCF Die in Reloading Equipment

    A squib that smoldered itself to fruition in a second or two. If I get "close" to the rifling with Hornady 250 SP I'm approx .3 an inch longer than the magazine on my 1909 DWM action with only 1/4 inch bullet in the neck.

    I think once you move that load past 25 yds to 100 you will find you need to position the powder charge( dacron or manually) to get decent accuracy.

    Another thought, what about backing up to a little taller base or set of rings again and add cheek height to your stock instead? Three44s
