Anyone got a powder measure not made of cheap pot metal working on a 1050 and still belling cases and actuating automatically?

Other than its material construction is there a specific problem you are having?

That’s the main issue. The cast part loosens up over time and starts leaking.

Greater consistency would be nice.

I've used a Hornady measure on my 1050, but didnt use the PTX. Don't see why the PTX wouldnt work though.

I can't tell you that I have seen an alternative but I can say what I did to solve some of the problems you describe.

As far the measure coming loose, I solved this with lock washers and a T handle allen wrench to allow me to better tighten the screws. I previously had thumb screws which were convenient but did not get the job done.

Polishing improved the consistency. Not only is the inside of my measure polished but the slider bar and inside contact surfaces as well. This took some time to do but did definitely improve consistency.

How did you fit it on the toolhead? I tried and it was a no go. Mr bullet feeder?

I’ve heard the little yellow scoops that come with Lee die sets are pretty good.

Will give this a shot. As for time, there's about a week turnaround time for REM microfinishing.
