It you used a hex head bolt, you have to do this from the bottom. If you used a screw with a round head, you could do it from either direction.
Good stuff there. You can also fine tune a dipper by drilling and tapping the bottom for a setscrew. They don't add much weight or stick so far out the bottom.

I use a .3 LEE dipper and Unique to load .32 ACP. It dumps a nice mid range load for poking holes in IDPA targets, cans, shooting steels, etc.

My LEE auto disc measure has problems with the dinky charges that the .32 takes. The dipper is fast and very consistant.

I have yet to use them for black powder charges but will be doing so for .38 S&W and probably .45 Colt in the near future.
