Powder Charge Weight Inconsistency

Sep 29th, 2016

If you are experiencing inconsistent powder throws from you Dillon Powder Measure you can call us at 800-762-3845.  For the best customer service please be in front of your machine when you call.  You may also check the following items:

  • The Dillon powder measure hopper has in integral baffle molded into it.  Start with the hopper at least 2/3 full above the baffle.
  • Be sure the case mouths are flared at least .010-.020" larger than a sized unflared case mouth. This ensures the powder bar consistently travels the full throw.
  • You should also check to insure that the failsafe tension rod is properly installed and has the correct amount of tension on the spring that is above the blue plastic wingnut.
  • Throw and dump 10-15 charges before you begin weighing charges.

We have several helpful videos on our site.  Just scroll down until you find the one you need.
