powder dispener

I am wondering if anyone has tried out an electric powder dispenser.

So far, I am doing OK with my Hornady hopper type dispenser... But I am new. I can definitely imagine how that thing would throw all kinds of strange loads once I get beyond small flake powders.

I am sorta thinking about getting some kind electrical dispenser when I start doing rifle loading, but I am not sure whether it would be worth the money.

Any experiences with them?

For rifle, RCBS' ChargeMaster does a fine job of trickling and is a great scale. I use it to develop pistol loads and I love to watch the thing.

Another fan/owner of the ChargeMaster combo unit - scale and dispenser. I use it for precision rifle loads. It will automatically dispense a load while you're seating a bullet. It is fast enough (and accurate, too) to keep up with me when loading/seating 308s.

I also use a ChargeMaster Combo for precision rifle. I verify the charge with a Dillon D-Terminator. It only takes a second or so to move the pan from one scale to another.

The Auto Dispense feature is really nice. I pour the charge into a case and place the pan back on the scale. It will automatically start dispensing while I seat the bullet and grab another case. The dispense takes just about as long so everything works out great. A very nice feature.

+1 on the chargemaster, like others had said; accurate, fast enough and fun to watch.

And another for the Chargemaster combo. I have had it 4 or 5 years I guess, maybe more. It is great, but I only use it for precision rifle, checking charges.

Buy once cry once with a digital scale. The real cheap ones are generally JUNK.
