I'm goingto invest in a powder throw too. With that and the new scale I'll be moving right along.
http://www.leeprecision.com/cgi/faq/index.cgiThe powder manufacturers allow themselves a 16% tolerance in the density of their powder, from lot to lot. We have to calibrate our chart to show the high side of that tolerance, so you should never get more than what the chart indicates, but you will sometimes get less. Believe the scale. If your measure consistently throws less than what the chart indicates, try going up to the next larger cavity. If the powder measure throws more than what the chart indicates, please let us know!
http://www.leeprecision.com/cgi/faq/index.cgiMake sure that when measuring charges thrown by the Auto Disk measure, that it is done out of the normal loading sequence. It is important that the measure work consistently in the amount of force used to move the disk to the drop hole and return. This is accomplished through consistent press lever operation every time.
You may want to "condition" the measure by either using powdered graphite on the disks or running the equivalent of a pound of powder through the measure. If you find that inconsistencies still exist, you may want to wash the disks in warm soapy water, rinse and let air dry. This should help eliminate any static that may have been present.
Lastly some powders do not meter well, Unique powder is one example that meters with "casual uniformity". You may find the same symptom with small flake powder in small quantities.
Glad to have you TBV. Welcome.Hello fellow shooting enthusiasts. I am looking for information on the VMD (volume measuring density conversion number) for Benchmark & CFE 223 powders with the Lee Pro Auto-Disc Powder measure set. I am loading .223/5.56 and am looking for the conversion to use the double disc set with my Lee Progressive loader. Any loads for BenchMark, IMR 4198, IMR 4895 or CFE 223 powders would also be helpful. Thanks in advance,
That is a guide to use . DO NOT LOAD ANY AMMO without weighting it first before you make any ammo . It is too easy make a mistake with those charts .Thanks so much, just what I was looking for.
