    I had horrible squib issues with the adjustable bar. Others have as well with light charges.

    Very true, I've heard that too. I never shot at the lower end so it was never an issue for me.

    I have one too but not for anything light. Actually, I use it for small rifle loads by setting it at half the charge, then activating it twice. For anything that must be very accurate, I just use a dipper and weigh.

    My preference is the disc because they can't change - once I have a verified load, no more checking is necessary.

    You don't like the double disk kit, or haven't given it a try yet?

    I haven't tried it - probably should but the other method has worked pretty well. Probably wrong, but finding a charge you want with two disc combinations seemed like it would be complex.

    It works pretty slick actually.

    Lee provides a chart with the disc combination volumes. You just translate it to the volume of powder you want using their charts and it gets close depending on the powder.
