    CHARGEMASTER LINK ELECTRONIC POWDER DISPENSER with Unique

    Any one have feedback on the new RCBS powder dispenser using flake powders?

    Mine is about 5 years old. It doesn’t matter what powder it measures. The mass on the display matches my 5-0-5 dead on every time.

    ^^^^^^Yep, what David2011 said. Wonderful powder measure. I've owned mine for 4 years and very happy.

    Had a Chargemaster since they first came out. Best thing since sliced bread. Mine does have one quirk with very fine spherical powders when dispensing small charges. Whenever, dispensing the first charge, say 7.0 grains of AA #7powder, it will meter out 9 grains. Only does that with the very first charge. No matter, I always verify the first charge against my RCBS beam scale. Never happens with flake or stick powders. BTW, the first charge up in the memory is 5.0 grains of Unique.

    Couple of years ago, the display wouldn't light up. I suspected the power supply adaptor cord was bad. Borrowed a friends power supply and it worked. Found a replacement on Amazon for less than ten dollars.

    My chargemaster performs fine with Unique. The last time I used it was for unique charges under a 95 grain boolit in 243.

    I will jump in too, my chargemaster works great with Unique and 700x. There are some mods you can buy to make the older ones work even better. Check out the youtube videos.

    I have had the RCBS for years now and I can't find fault with it. It does want to have problems with very fine powder but there is a simple cure for that. Take a pair of small needle nosed pliers and pull the tubes out until you feel them hit the end of their spring action and release them. That will clean the powder gathered in the crevice's of the powder feed. The first time I ran into this problem I called customer service at RCBS and a very nice lady told me how simple it is to clear the build up on the powder in the crevice's. My experience anyway, james

    Santa brought me a Chargemaster Lite last Christmas.

    I should have gotten one years ago,such a wonderful machine.

    Static is the only little distraction -only in winter-, powder "jumps" up around inside the reservoir walls. It's hard to clean when changing powders. We may have 10% humidity for months.

    You only forget the drain plug open once when switching powders,lesson learned.
