Only an opinion

Oldfalguy and Hawg,

I have one of the Measures that Hawg likes and also have that CVA 1400. I like Hawgs because with one measure you can get any load you desire. I like the CVA because it is quicker if you like the volume of the measure spout that is presently on the measure. I am going to get the set of spouts from Cabela's for additional range of loads.

The jury is out as to whether or not remaining hot particles in the chambers present a danger or not. By that I mean that in this thread alone there are those who are concerned enough not to use a measure like the CVA and there are those who say it is not a problem.

The way I do it is to run off a cylinder, put the pistol down, check and mark the target, return to the firing table and check the chambers (visually) and then put the pistol on the stand and reload directly from the measure whether I am using the CVA or the TC.

I am not letting either of these measures go. I like them both.

That looks like the same flask I use.
