    Ernie I love mine as well, it just crapped out on me last night. I stopped at Cabelas on the way home from work and got a new one. All the powder dispensers look good but I like to stay with what I know. I had it up and running when I got home and loaded a couple hundred rounds tonight. I feel it cuts the loading time in half or even better.

    "... get your hands on one ..."

    THAT'S not likely to happen! LOL!
    ...of course unless I happen to use someone else's.

    pmacc60, I'm not adverse to new stuff. I'm adverse to spending money (on sale for $225? 😳!) that I don't have too.

    Yes sir, I have tried some technologically advanced items, found them...uuhhmm...worthy and adopted them.
    If I was loading and shooting several thousand rounds annually, I just might have to step up to the plate - so to speak.

    Right now, $225 would purchase lots of reloading components I'd rather have than an electronic powder dump/scale.

    You can't find them, but I prefer an analog watch to a digital.
    Alas...😥

    Thanks Jim I will , the thing looks brand new and I don’t have a clue as to why it won’t turn on! It just irritates the heck out of me!

    A call to RCBS Cust Svc and a new one arrived within a couple of days.
    It works like a champ again.

    Those electronic, digital scales and powder dumps scare me! 👀! Electronic stuff can screw up and you don't know it.

    It's my OFS! 😎!
    FB that was the best reloading investment I ever made the day I bought the 1500 charge master . Now I’m spoiled and a trip home from work today to get one from Cabelas . I hear your concern but if you ever get your hands on one you will never go back!

    Nice post Jim , I know Fitch is getting into loading and it’s a great read for all. On a different note, my RCBS charge master 1500 stopped working on me last night! It just wouldn’t turn on, I want to research it and see if I can save it. In the meantime looks like I’m gonna spend another $400.
