Crazy if you don't buy this Lyman 55

http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=452801

I don't know the seller, but we do allow ads in the H&R area. His post is over in the classifieds.

It's a great deal on what I believe is the best of all the powder measures.

But I already have one. And it's in no danger of wearing out.

I agree, the Lyman 55 is a great powder measure.

Heck of a deal. I'm not crazy for not buying it though. My 55's at least 30 years old, but it still works fine for everything but fine grain ball powders. Those tend to bind it up.

Yes, neither of you guys are crazy... for the same reason I'm not crazy. I have mine and I don't see a use for a second one.

But I sure love this thing. It's literally made my Hornady measure collect dust and take up space. I really should just go ahead and remove it from the bench.
