    Gavin, very timely topic indeed. I've been using the Powder Cop die on my LNL'S and have actually been very satisfied with them.

    Couple of weeks ago I ordered the RCBS Lock-Out die just to compare the two but haven't had the chance to get it set up however. The Dillon powder die is up and running on the 1050 but I'm looking forward to comparing all three.

    Obviously my observations will relate only to my personal preferences and physical limitations while loading.

    As I'm sure you've been told many times, your videos are very well produced and have undoubtedly saved loaders many headaches and reduced the level of frustration dramatically. Kudos to you... keep up the good work.

    Never used them or saw a need to use them. I use visual confirmation of powder charge in the case.
