    I am too impatient to wait on the Chargemaster to throw a full charge so I set the powder measure on the Dillon a couple of grains under, dump that in the pan and thus use the Chargemaster as a trickler to finish off. Works for me and cuts the time considerably. I also use the MacDonalds straw and reset the times and really like the way mine works.

    Ok, thanks. I have the Charge master “Lite” and have had very few over charges (3, maybe 4 out of a 100). I am also curious about the “programming” of the charge master mentioned earlier and does it apply to the newer “Lite” version of the machine.

    Good Grief... the other night I swear I was getting 50-60% over charges by 2 to 4 tenths. I was so close to smashing that mother f@#ker to pieces.

    Ha, maybe my CM lite isn’t “broken” in yet. Lol.
    Does the CM have the trickler function of the output tube like the Lite version does? The output tube rotates slowly as the charge weight that is set and desired is approached.

    BTW....JRB sure has some informative videos for sure on YT. Except one of his .300 Blk videos where subsonic reloads are being tested without a suppressor. All kinds of FTFs. Can’t figure out why someone would NOT test subsonic reloads/work ups with out the gun being suppressed.
