pro 2000 ?

when i go from loading a short round to a longer round and then back my setting for my powder measure are not quite right.i have to move the height of the measure for the longer case.im only off a little does everybody else have the same problem.or can you go from a 40 s&w to a 44 mag and back to a 40 s&w without making an adjustment on your measure.when i first loaded 44 mag the measure was set for 510 after comming back to 44 later it had to be set for 480.not much but none would be better.im talking about moving the powder measure to allow for the longer case,thanks,keith

I don’t see a way to avoid changing the height of the measure when going from one cartridge to another. However, it does not have anything at all to do with the setting of the charge weight. Maybe I’m misunderstanding the question.

For what it’s worth, when I go from 38 special to 45 ACP, I have to turn the measure in about three complete turns to get it set to the right height.
