      I do some reloading of rifle shells when needed. I use a single stage RCBS press. I am looking to upgrade my powder measuring from just a simple scale to something accurate and more efficient. What are you guys using? What would you recommend?
      Thanks

      140 VLD in my 6.5 Creed, and 6.5x284. I use the 150 gr VLD in my 270W and the 210gr in my 300 Win Mag.
      I have killed deer at 758 yards with the 140 doing 2700 fps I have killed deer with the 150 in 270W at 3050fps out to 800 yards, and the 210 gr at 3060 spits through deer at 850 yards and spits up dirt 100 yards beyond. I wondered if it was mushrooming properly, but the inside looked like jello and he only made it ten steps. I have killed deer to 1200 yards with the 210 gr. With R26 I am now pushing the 140 VLD at 3035 fps. I have not had a buck tag for three years so which rifle I use if I get one this fall will be a tough decision. Maybe I'll just grab a wolf tag in Montana and try give the Creedmoor something to bite.

      Kurt, Are you running the Matchmaster? It's a little spendy but I'm not opposed to buy once, cry once if it's the real deal.

      Chargemaster are real nice. Some powders don’t meter out of the worth a dam so take that into consideration. My Vit N570 being one of those

      Once you go berger you won’t go back..... unless Biden outlaws lead bullets in that case we will all be shooting Barnes or Hornady GMX or whatever it is.

      Meh. I've shot plenty of Bergers. There's no doubt Berger makes a good bullet, but I find that a premium Hornady (ELD, ELDX) or Sierra (SMK, TMK) shoot just as well (or in some cases better), and are significantly cheaper.

      For the price of a Matchmaster, you might as well spend a bit more and get an AutoTrickler
      I got one coming, so my Chargemaster (which is a great unit in its own right) may be for sale soon.

      I almost bought some Sierra just for something new but man I drank the berger kool Aide hard!!! Haha the new Hornady A-tip tickles my fancy. I’ve just Personally the one and done drop in their tracks like someone pulled a rug out I have never had a bullet do it like berger. But that might have more to do with my shooting ability than anything as I shoot year around now and never did prior

      I have never had Berger out shoot Hornady or Sierra. From a 6MM BRX, to 6.5 x 284 Sierra shoots the best with Hornady a close 2nd.

      My 22-6MM AI and 6MM AI love the Blitzking bullets.

      I’m not but seen one in action and it functioned great. Used a charge master a bunch did the McDonald’s straw in the tube and it fed stick powders better.

      You should hit me up when you sell it. I might buy it from you....

      The Chargemaster is neither precise nor very efficient. I have one. Two on the other hand, would be pretty efficient. They are slow and throw inconsistent charges. It would be better to throw a light charge and use a trickler on a manual scale to finish out. But I'm not that picky, yet.

      Personally, I would look into other options if you are looking to buy once cry one.

      My brother runs dual Chargemasters and seems to be pretty happy with it. Speed can be increased by modifying the settings. Precision can be increased by taking steps to regulate temperature, static, and voltage consistency (which is true of any electronic solution). There are some good tips detailed here: CHARGEMASTER 1500 Best Results and Practices | Sniper's Hide Forum

      Best thing that can be done for any of the thrower/scale combos is to get it OFF of the bench where you're press is.

      Assumption being that you throw a charge, return the pan, the powder starts to spin in for the next charge and you're seating a bullet into the case you just charged w/powder. Even the most sturdy table, cleanly chamfered case, accepting sleekly tapered boat-tails jostles the bench, therefore the scale on the auto unit. They don't throw any faster that way, but, they do throw fewer imprecise charges thereby increasing throughput speed.

      Anyone try using CCI no34 primers in typical rifle rounds such as 6.5 creed or 300wm? They say they are magnum primers similar to cci 250’s but wonder if anyone has used them ?
