Spherical ball powder ?

.

 

I have always used spherical ball powders with my Dillon machines thinking that those powders metered more consistently.

 

Have now been reading that Hodgdon's H110 causes problems in Dillons.

 

Should I go to extruded or flake powders instead of the spherical ball powders ?

RE: Spherical ball powder ?

The problem with H110, AA9 and W296 is that the granule dimensio9n is so small on some powder granules that they fit between the powder bar and measure body, and cause it to bind. Most other ball/spherical powders have a larger granule size, and this is not a problem.
