I use a Lyman powder dispenser but I think Lee does make a great product. I could see having one ofthese, I've heard nothing but good things.
same that I got , the variance was so much with the Auto Disk that I dipped the charge for the 380.I've never had much luck with consistency with Unique in any powder measure I have owned. Only the Lee Dippers were close but I still had to use a scale and a powder trickler to get any sort of consistency. I use an RCBS Charge Master 1500 and it works well but is slow. I use Titegroup, 231 or HP38. They meter easily and provide the results I need.
Stick powders are for rifle cartridges. I shoot 'em in .257 Roberts (H4831), .30-30 and 8x57 (IMR3031), 7.62x39 and .223 (IMR 4198 ), 7mm Remington Magnum (RL22) and a few other odd calibers like 7mmTCU I haven't loaded in years. These are loaded to max and, therefore, I weigh 'em. I'm not in to quantity with these rounds, just loading the best hunting loads I can. They're all quite accurate and powerful for their caliber. I don't load plinking ammo for .223 and 7.62x39. Loaded ammo is cheap. Actually, since I've been using Wolf 154 soft point in 7.62x39, I haven't loaded IT in years, either. That Wolf stuff is just too good, most accurate in my SKSs and it will tear a pig a new one.same that I got , the variance was so much with the Auto Disk that I dipped the charge for the 380.
that's why I was so surprised when I ran 20 rounds and every one was dead on weight 3.5 grains of unique.
hopefully this remains the case.
my Auto disk has worked great now for many years, up until the last couple of weeks when it began to vary a good bit and would hang up in operation. so-- tried something new and so far so good.
I don't use extruded powders so don't know about them, don't really care actually as I don't see myself using them.
most of my powders are spherical in shape.
