    I saw a ad for these hand held measures, Look kind of like cake decorators and was wondering if anyone had experience with them?
    They've been around along time and I like the idea.

    They are really no different in the method used by Dillon on their presses or for that matter MEC on their shotshell loaders. A sliding bar that moves a volume of powder from the reservoir to the funnel that drops into the case.

    With the stationary types like Dillon, consistent powder drops rely on repeating all conditions with each drop. Same level of "vibration" that settles the powder the same amount with each "throw".

    This measure, being "Mobile" can subject the powder to varying rates of settling so I wouldn't use it for direct charging of the case but wouldn't hesitate to use one to drop a charge on a powder scale pan, adjusting with a trickler as necessary.
