    I didn't know an RCBS powder measure would work on a LCT! :wow:

    Do you manually drop the powder into each case with that setup, or does the die still auto measure it for you? I am just curious.

    They don't usually. I have a tailor made bracket holding the measure above the die and I manually crank the lever to dump the powder. Not an ideal situation by any means. One day I'll have a Hornady LNL!

    Absolutely nothing. The RCBS powder measure came first then the LCT. Didn't want to buy another measure!

    DP if you use the RCBS or Hornady CAPD with the measure it will auto dispense just like the Lee setup.

    Looks like some of that cheap BLUE paint rubbed off on the front of your bench. Rust can't be far behind. :whistling:

    Never had a rust problem, it doesn't sit still long enough. I heard that is why the other company went with red so the rust isn't so noticeable.:whistling:
