It is time to replace my 35 year old Pacific Powder Measure. Any recommendations based on actual experience?
Nice! Heck I'd be happy with 1 for pistol and 1 for rifle to run on my LnL AP.
I like the Hornady Lock N Load. It’s accurate for me. I have 4 of them. One for each of my loads.

I tap (once at the top of the stroke, once at the bottom) and I find it helps set a rhythm, too. Any break in rhythm means that charge goes back in the hopper. Another big thing is keeping the measure at least half full so there's less chance of the powder bridging on you and not throwing a full charge every time.some years ago when i was doing high power competition, i read a review in one of the benchrest magazines testing a lot of powder measures, including a lot of very high end ones. the results were that the Lee was the equal of the best regardless of price. I used one ever since for many years. only complaint was that the stand felt a bit wiggly so i reinforced it. Common thread to accuracy was YOU! a consistent throw is the secret. I never let the hopper get real low and would start with the measure empty, and counting seconds would:1 fill measure, 2-3-4 wait , 5 dump. nice quick consistent motions, never did any tapping or anything. secret for me was starting empty so i could allow a consistent time for powder to settle into the measure. Only weighed the results for my 600yd loads and that pretty much was only to be anal.
