    Rcbs uniflow powder measure stand

    I recently bought a Lyman universal press stand which raises my rockchucker up 9", and then realized that I should also raise up my Powder measure too.
    There is room on the Lyman stand to attach the uniflow as well with the flat bar that came with the measure, but it's a bit crowded, so I looked around to see if I had something else that would work.
    Then I saw my Caldwell Junior shooting rest over in the corner, hardly ever getting used. Off came the bag with the velcro strap, the single screw holding the flat plate onto the adjustment bar, and on pops the uniflow flat bar. The screw lines up perfect, and it looks like it was made for this purpose. It's even green.

    I made mine too, no photos but imagine a piece of 2” wide 1/4” steel bent in a Z but vertical and a 7/8 hole in the top for the measure and two smaller holes in the base for mounting.

    I had some 3/4 pipe fitting setting around and gave a try.
    I'm cheap and lazy but it's work okay so far.

    I love the ingenius and sometimes simple ideas to make improvements to our reloading equipment. Thanks

    Mines similar to the first picture but I used 1/4-12 nut and a Hornady® Lock-N-Load® Conversion Kit makes it a little easier to empty the hopper.
