Is anybody out there running the Lee Perfect Powder Measure with the Universal Charging Die?

If so, please comment on what press you have this set up on and how it is working out.

I run the Pro-Auto Disk, but if I get the .30-06 rifle I'm hankerin' for, I'll likely have to "double pull" to fill that big honkin' case. And though I've read comments that this can yield good results, I'm not so keen on the idea (for obvious reasons).

I didn't even know you could set up the PPM for case activated charging, till I saw it offered as part of the Load Master kit for rifle calibers. Then today, I read that the Unniversal Charging Die (not to be confused with the Powder Through Expandind Die or the Rifle Charging Die) supposedly comes with everything you need to run the PPM on any standard thread press.

The Pro Auto Disk will do mild .30/06 Hodgdon "Youth Loads" with two discs on my Lee Classic Cast Turret Press.

Some people here tried the Perfect Powder Measure on the press and didn't like it.

DaveInFloweryBranchGA successfully used an RCBS Uniflow on his Lee Classic Cast Turret. If you search he has pictures and details.

I am experimenting with the Pro Auto Disc using three discs for my .30/06.

SSN,
I am using a Perfect Powder Measure with the universal rifle charge die (the one with the link and chain return) and load 30.06 using 57g of H4350 topped off with Hornady 165g interbond ballistic tips. I run the setup on a loadmaster in fully progressive mode. I normally run a hundred at a time, checking every 10th or so for weight. It works great. You just want to run a little slower than normal to give that massive dose of powder time to fall into that large case.
