700x and rcbs uniflow powder measure

I wanted to try some 700x powder but was wondering if it will give me any trouble metering through a rcbs uniflow powder measure. I've never tried this powder before and am reading a few posts where folks are saying it doesn't meter well.....any experience with the above?

I have shot a good deal of 700 X.
Loads in the five grain and up range for use in things like .45 ACP and .44 Special do OK, but I have not been able to get uniform charges near 3.5 grains for 9mm Subsonic and .38 Special.

I use it in RCB and LEE perfict. The Lee dose the best job with light charges. I use 3.7 with Seaco 200 gr cast. This for target, and 4.2 as a pin load. Have never loaded below 3.7
