Lee Pro Auto-Disc Powder Measure

I used my Lee Pro Auto-Disc Powder Measure for the first time tonight. I give it 2 thumbs up. Well worth the money. I only wish I had bought it sooner.

I really like mine as well. Only issue I have is when using a flake powder like Unique it is very inconsistent at cavities < .40cc (which the instruction warn about as well).

When using the disk doubler and stick powders like Varget or H4895 I get unpredictable intervals of weight between doubled cavities. Ball powders avoid a lot of the issues. I haven't decided if the disk doubler is worth it.

But for most pistol loads it is really nice.

Lee stuff

A suggestion: Take a look at the Lee Adjustable Charge Bar. I have a couple of them. They are so accurate and consistent that I put away the disks completely. I do, however, use them that way only for pistol cartridges.
I understand that it can be used in conjunction with the disks to fine tune loads.
For ten bucks, it's a nice accessory.

Pete, you nailed it.
The disks work great but the adjustable charge bar makes this probably the best powder measure for loading handgun ammo. ( for rifle I measure and weigh each one )

One other quick question about the Lee Pro Auto-Disc Powder Measure. I have the riser on it but it still hits my primer tray. I need it to go up about another 1/2 inch. If it adjusts I can't figure it out. Any ideas? Thanks
