you can make some pretty accurate dippers using a old case (I like 30 - 06) and a tubing cutter. I cut the neck off then weighed the charge and dropped it in, marked the case with a sharpie then cut it to that height. I would tweak the length it till it measured a couple of tenths short and trickle to weight. I made one for each of my pet charges that used a stick powder.

I used that method until a week or so back when I broke down and bought a Chargemaster. I still have my dippers though, can't never tell when electronics might go south on you. That's why I still check every few charges against a beam scale
