    p.s. also the RCBS Lil Dandy is along the same lines but different rotor diameter

    As always, thanks for all the help!

    UPDATE: Over on the ARTCA Forum (which I highly recommend) someone posted some old catalog pages and the Unique and 2400 listings showed up. Another piece falls into place!

    Mr. Frog Person sir, I have about a dozen rotor's, I will get a list to you. One is marked Unique. I am retaking pictures of the 5 variations, these will go to you. Next is digging through the catalogs to get approximate dates of production, I don't have a complete set so it leaves some open areas..

    All you need is a 2.0 and a 2.5 and you will have the whole run that was offered over the longest time of production.
    Iím still trying to find anything definitive on dates for the straight, simple cylinders vs the ones with larger knobs and the extra stop groove (whose function I canít figure out! )

    The rotors for Unique seem to run from about 4.5 or so up to 10 grains in .5 gr increments (if all the ones I have are original.) When I finish this odyssey Ken, I’ll have some dupes for various sizes and powders to dispose of. Maybe we can assemble a set for the archives as well. Then too, there’s the NIB late Bair measure that belongs in a museum or archive... no reason to use it...

    Mr. Frog Person, the Bair will be in the archive. I need to look at the pre-war catalogs then I will have a package to get off to you. I have not found a catalog listing for Unique, though I have one so marked and another that I cannot determine what it is.

    OP THANK YOU ! I bought a collection of measures from Amoskeg and one of these with 16 rotors was in it (along with a fantastic Ohaus). It is totally unmarked so I had no idea who made it. I've used it to load. 44 Russian, 300 B/O and 9x55 Swiss. Works very well and is as accurate as the LEE for small charges.

    Ken,

    You sent me the reference with the Unique and 2400 marked rotors in it. IIRC, it was one of the pages that came through as a jpeg, in the little box showing the measure and listing the rotors available. That list showed only the three rotors I have for 2400, but more listed for Unique than I have seen.

    Let me work with that data and see what I can sort out.
