    Need ID for old powder measure mic

    Darnedest thing. Bought and cancelled the Lyman Brass Smith twice today thinking about getting a new powder measure. Gunsmith friend comes into my shop today and hands me a micrometer from an old powder measure that someone had dropped off at his place. Anyone take a stab at what this is from?
    Looks like decent quality, Iím thinking 70s or older.

    Those can come in very handy if you are building a jig or something of that sotr. I have several of them in my mic drawer. One has a 3" diameter spindle for super fine accuracy. The ones I have are marked either Starrett or Mitutoyo. Too bad that one is not stamped with the maker.

    It is a micrometer seating stem for a Hornady bullet seating die.
