Does anyone know if Hornaday Case Activated Powder Drop will work on the Hornaday Bench Rest Powder Measure? Or will it only work on the Lock-N-Load Powder Measure?

Thanks in advance,
Dale

Hornady told me it would work on the LNL only. "IF" the bench rest measure uses the same drum as the LNL, I would think it would work. The older Hornady measures will not work.

I know it will work with a Uniflow. The RCBS linkage is identical to Hornady's, except for price.

I wonder why Hornady says that. I just purchased a Hornaday Bench Rest Powder Measure and the Case Activated Powder Drop and every thing seems to fit and function fine. I am getting ready to start testing it to see how consistant it is. I think I may need to paint it becouse the red looks out of place sitting on top of my Dillon 550.

I'm curious about this as well- I'm considering the purchase of a Hornady Bench Rest Powder Measure for my heavy pistol loads. If my studying about this measure is correct it has a metering insert size somewhere between the regular LNL pistol and rifle inserts.

I did a little testing on my new Hornaday Bench Rest Powder Measure with the Hornady Case Activated Powder Drop installed on my Dillon RL550B.The results are with IMR 4895 powder into a 223 case and my target was 23.3 grains, with a Dillon D-Terminator scale. There was no spilled powder or any sign of a powder bridge.

Drop # Grains
1 - 23.3
2 - 23.3
3 - 23.3
1 - 23.3
5 - 23.2
6 - 23.3
7 - 23.4
8 - 23.2
9 - 23.3
10- 23.3
11- 23.3
12- 23.4
13- 23.2
14- 23.3
15- 23.3
16- 23.2
17- 23.3
18- 23.3
19- 23.3
20- 23.3

Then a 10 drop total of 232.6 grains for an average of 23.26
