I have a RCBS powder measure. I know that there is trick to remove the barrel. There is a beveled end inside, that will not come out. It went in, so it's gotta come out, but how?Tom

GET A BIGGER HAMMER !!Seriously, it looks just like the one I have had for over 40 years. You have the adjuster unscrewed. Mine just pulls straight out and the barrel (drum) just falls out. Other than that, I don't know.

Sorry, Tom. I was looking at my measure with the small drum. For the large drum, unscrew both nuts off the spindle, then rotate the drum and the spindle should fall out through the powder hopper.

Thanks RimRock, worked just like you said, It just dosen't look like it would at that angle. It is so much nicer to work with it turned around.Tom
