Leaving powder in the hopper

Oct 6th, 2016
We recommend returning powder to the container it came in when you are finished with your reloading session.  The residual solvents in the powder will eventually discolor and darken the hopper tube. Some powders, notably double-based handgun powders, do this faster.  We have reformulated the plastic used to mold the hopper tube as improvements are available. The current production tubes are less susceptible to it, but no transparent plastic currently exists that is entirely resistant and can be produced affordably, or molded. We won't change to a metal or glass tube, nor to an opaque plastic.

If you need further assistance please call us at 800-762-3845.  For the best possible customer service please make sure you are in front of your machine when you call.
