Powder Thrower

Post by GALongbeardSmacker » March 6th, 2018, 10:24 pm

Is anyone who is just running one type of powder using a powder throw? I'm thinking about setting one up just curious what ones might work well.

No more shells than I load, a teaspoon and scale work just fine for me.

Once I have the load figured out I will use my uniflow to to dump the majority of the powder in the pan and then use the trickler to get it right on. When I am all done I will put the powder back in the can and put it away. I do not use the uniflow unless I am loading bulk.

I use an RCBS uniflow pretty often for loading shotshells. When using poor metering powders like Alliant Steel, you can still produce very accurate drops with it.
I'll set it to throw half of the charge and double drop the powder into the scale pan. Really reduces the need for the powder trickler.

I use them for rifle handloading but as easy as it is to measure and as few as I do I just use a trickler for TSS. By the time I get it calibrated I could have loaded powder in 5 or more hulls with a trickler.

I weigh each charge and use a plastic medicine cup as my trickler. It works really well. Tried an actual trickler and spoon but wasn't super happy with either one. I use the medicine cups for powder, shot, and buffer.
