    How do you calibrate it?
    With verniers for a set depth for a given powder?

    Now that's a clever idea! Looks a lot nicer than any of my home made dippers lol

    Very nice.

    I have used this antique dipper for 30 years. When I bought it I didn't think I'd be actually using it.

    Ooh, I want one! Like Texas by God posted I’d be glad to test it for you. After all you want to make sure it works don’t you

    Kudos for what definitely will be an asset to any loading set-up! I may just copy your idea... great for at-range loading to complement a tail-gate setup at the range... I have used fired empty brass cases trimmed -- but these are not adjustable .

    That method will likely be easier (and faster) than fiddling around with a caliper.
