Awesome deal, thank you for the link. How can Amazon sell these so cheap? :eek:

I just brought the LnL powder measure at half price. Thanks for the heads up.:):):)

Who cares?? I find it remarkable and great that Amazon sells reloading gear.

Just bought 2 at that price plus free shipping. Maybe when they are out I can sell one on an auction and pay near nothing for the other?:)

ordered one too. probably an error but placed order anyway.

I was going to get the powder measure and adapt it to my Lee Turret. Then I started adding things up. Case actuated powder drop. Small pistol insert. With shipping I'd have $125 or so in the thing. Right now I can buy a LNL AP for around $380, with $180 (realistic price) worth of free bullets. $200 net for the whole shooting match vs. not that much less for a powder measure alone. Decided not to order.

I ordered the powder measure from Amazon, and also ordered a CAPD setup elsewhere. That way, I can have two complete powder measures for my LNL set up and ready to go at any time. for pistol, one for rifle. I mostly load 223 and 9mm right now.

It seemed like a good idea until I saw the cost of a CAPD. I will stick with the measure my press came with.

The LNL powder measure is a bit too heavy to be comfortable on top of a Lee Turret. I know, as I own both and tried it. IF you want to add that style of powder measure, get an RCBS measure used and a capd. The RCBS is much lighter, is comfortable atop the Lee Classic Turret and works well with the CAPD there for reloading rifle.

As far as cost, be patient and pick the stuff up used off ebay, the local gunshow or some such. One doesn't have to rush these things. "Gotta have it now" is an expensive proposition.
