    How many measures?

    Okay, it's time to fess up. How many powder measures do you have? I know it may be tough, but the first step to healing an addition is admiting it. I'll start. I have three, a Redding #3, a Redding Standard powder measure, and a Herter's model 40.

    Edit: Lee dippers, as a set, not individual, count as a powder measure.

    Down-sized to 4....let my Lyman 55 and a standard Uniflow go, still have a Redding and 3 Unifows with the mirco-stem. Really only use 3 of them, nice to have a spare.
    Take a kid to the range, you'll both be glad you did.

    Haha. Wow! That's a lot more measures than I thought people would have. I'm glad no poor soles with only one measure have voted yet. I think they need help just as much as the ones with 8 measures.

    Many, many
    SAECO,RCBS, Lymans, Ohaus, Lee Auto, Dillon, Hollywood, Star, Pacific, Hornady.
    For the Dillons, one for each of the 8 toolheads for the 2 1050s.
    For the three Pro-jectors one on each
    For the two Stars, they are built in.
    I really like the SAECO powder measures

    Two Lyman 55s, a Hornady LNL, a Harrell's schuetzen/pistol, a Hornady pistol (the one that uses the bushings in the slide), and two LEE perfects (although I disagree with the name, they do work) are in my collection, currently. Also have a Hornady LNL Auto-Charge, if it counts.

    Now days, the 55s, the LNL, and the Auto-Charge are the only ones that see regular use.

    Counting the ones on my shotshell presses, that would be nine.

    It looks like more than 5 is more normal than just 1. I am down to only 8.

    If you don't have at least 10, you belong in the kiddie pool!

    I've got more than 5 antique Ideal measures ( a #6, a couple of #5s, and three #5s with micrometer, not to mention the little #1 that I use to pre-load cases for my cap-and-ball Remington.) Then there are some Lyman #55s, a couple of Belding & Mulls, the ones built in on the Dillon and the Star, a Little Dandy and an Accu-Measure, both with complete sets of rotors, and at least a couple more I'm sure I've forgotten. Are we counting powder flasks with built-in measuring heads?

    Let's see: 2 lyman #55's, 1 Hornady, 4 Lee Micro disc's. I am sure a few more will be added at anytime soon.

    An Ideal #5 that I use for black powder.

    A Harrell "Schuetzen" measure I take to the range to load as I shoot and to let the other shooters know that I'm a "serious shooter."

    My work-horse, the Belding & Mull I started measuring powder with and could easily use for everything, were it necessary.

    A Hollywood, which sits on top of a Hollywood turret press and I just look at and admire.

    Oh, I forgot--a Herter's which I used to use to measure fillers but haven't used in a while. (Can I change my vote?)

    I also have the Lee scoop set and an Ideal adjustable scoop for shotshells, both of which I use when the necessity arises.

    Oop!! Forgot the RCBS Chargemaster on the kitchen table!

    I have Lee Pro powder measures with all my hand gun loads and a Perfect Powder Measure with my 45-70 loads. Now I also use the Lee dippers for black powder in all loads using it. I load 9mm, 45ACP, 45 Colt, 454 Casull and 45-70 Gov. If I add another caliber I will add another powder measure for it also.
