Lee Disc Powder Measure - 22Hornet

Hey guys new to your forum but seasoned to reloading . I was trying to speed up loading for my 22 H and was thinking about going with a Lee disc and rifle charging die . Any of you guy try this? Hornets require pretty accurate charges because of the small case capacity . FYI I have a new Redding turret press set up just for loading Hornets .I'm sizing with a Lee collet die , seating with a Horniday New Dimension seating sie, and a Lee Factory Crimper .Any other Hornet thoughts would be good ?

I use the Pro Auto Disk with great results. I use this in place of the disks though.

If you need a double disk to get a large enough charge, then use this item in place of the top disk.

It needs a couple hundred charges run through it before it becomes really repeatable, somehow it gets better with use.

I've read that it's finicky with some powders. I only use WSF and 4895 and do not have any trouble with either.

For very small amounts of powder, make sure you don't use a flake powder, and get the Lee micro disk or the adjustable charge bar. I tend to think the micro disk would be more consistent, but less adjustable. But I haven't actually used the bar.
