Lyman's #55 powder measure is THE standard for powder measures. When I first got this thing, I took it out of the packaging, cleaned it with rubbing alcohol (to remove packing oils), and filled it with Unique. I spent a few minutes getting it close to the range I wanted it to throw, and just a few more seconds really getting it precisely dialed in.
I then spent a good bit of time throwing charge after charge that weighed either 4.2 or 4.3 grains. I just kept throwing, weighing, and dumping the powder back in the hopper. That's even tighter than a true +/- .1 grain consistency! If you want it closer than that, you'd better be using a trickler on every round.
I would recommend this powder measure to anyone who reloads, from the newest of the new to the fifty-year veteran. Buy this measure and you will NOT ever spend more money on another.
I am very pleased with how well this works!
I ran 1 lb through it to start, to "break it in" and get rid of any oil or sticky spots that might mess up my loads.
Yes, would recommend.
Update, I have since upgraded to the Lyman auto charge station and I love it, but it's much more expensive.
I don't use this anymore but I was very happy with it as a starter setup. I will keep it around as a backup or for when I have a friend over helping me.
You can use this for everything though, even precision if you load light and then top things off on the scale. Great value for the price.
