    I did mine years ago. Couldn’t imagine running it in factory configuration. A friend of mine used mine and then bought one. He thought his was broken when compared to a programmed unit.

    Wipe the chargemaster down with an anti-static dryer sheet. I was having problems with it starting spot on and then drifting/overcharging. Called RCBS customer service. That's their recommendation.

    I use these settings and the straw on mine.

    [I]1. Turn the unit on.
    2. When 0.0gn is on the display, press BOTH the ENTER and the EDIT MEM keys...

    Is the ChargeMaster Lite programmable the same way?

    (I don't have one, but I'm looking at the manual, and it doesn't mention programming.)

    No clue. I don't own one either.

    I do that periodically. RCBS told me try it back when I first got it ten years ago.

    On the Chargemaster,, make sure you use the plastic cover when despensing and weighing. Those load cells are very sensitive and even a slight breeze (that you cannot feel) or your breathing can affect it.
    Seen way too many vids about people complaining about the drift and they are not using the cover.

    You should see the scale that comes with the Auto trickler deal. Makes the chargemaster scale look like kids' stuff.

    What is the “McDonald’s straw” that you are talking about? I bought an RCBS Charge master lite and it seems very accurate. Only used it for a short time though.

    The McDonalds straw deal is where you cut a piece of McDonalds straw and slide it into the output tube. It smooths the flow rate of powder kernels. Less clumping at the mouth of the output tube. The chargemaster can't see that there's a big pile of kernals ready to drop when it's nudging the load up to weight. I'll some flick the output tube if I can see that it's getting ready to Eff me with an over dump.

    WAG here, but I thought I read somewhere that RCBS had fixed the design of the output tube with the (newer) "Lite" and the McDonalds straw was no longer necessary...
