Sure did. Didn't I send you pics of the completed unit? Your parts list was invaluable, thanks. I have a Nady 351 unit on it now.ECaller Funny thing is I probably use a mouth call about 50% of the time.

I've been looking at the auto measure units, as I shake a bit. How long does the RCBS take to measure a charge of about 20 grains? Thanks.

I would guess to say about 5 seconds or so. I have one and I have absolutely no frickin idea how I ever reloaded without it. Here's an example of how it will speed things up...I put the powder tray on the dispenser. It automatically chargers 26.5 grains for my .223. I pick up the pan and load it into a case and set the pan back down on the dispenser. I put the round in the press and seat a bullet. Before I can set the finished round down, the dispenser is already finished and I am ready to repeat. There is no down time with the Chargemaster and it wil literally cut your times down by more than half....

I agree with Jeph, I don't know how I ever reloaded all those years before I had one of these. It is a fast and accurate powder measuring system. And it lets you weigh every charge, which I like.

It is by far the fastest and most accurate of all of the electronic measurer's. Mine is the earlier one where you have to push a button to get it to dispense each charge but I dare any handloader to be as accurate or as fast as even my earlier model. I may have to order the newer version so I can be even lazier. :signlol2iu:

Hey, have any of you guys used the Lyman 1200?

I had one and like other people I talked with it was slow to measure and very unstable over a period of time. It seems like I had to leave it turned on for hours to get it to stabilize. Several other people I talked with had the same problem. The RCBS is rated the very best a http://www.6mmbr.com...308/1266096.htm too.

Glad to see I was right about John not liking it. I have bought several items so far that John gave good reviews. I have been totally happy with his advice.
