Good metering powder for Lee Auto Disk


August 31, 2011, 02:38 PM
I'm looking for powder that meters well in the Lee Pro Auto Disk. Will be reloading for 9, 40 and 357. I was given some unique and it sucks so I'm looking for something better. I don't need load data just recommended powders. Also not necessarily looking for one powder for all calibers

I use Win 231/HP-38 and it meters very well thru my Lee adjustable charge bar.

When I had my Lee, HP-38/W231 metered like a champ. Never more than +/-.1

I've used Tite Group in a Lee Pro Auto Disc & it worked very well with the discs.
Not so well with the adjustable bar (too small of a charge).

I've used it for 38 spl, 357 mag, 9mm, 45 acp & 45 Colt.
Never had a 40, so I can't say on that one.

Bullseye or HP-38 flow very nicely. If you want some oomph behind that 357, 2400 meters well also.

I also have the auto disk pro and I'll put in another vote for HP38. I've also have had good luck with Bullseye, Clays, Red Dot, AA#5,7&9 and Lil'Gun.

2400 and Win 296 meter consistently but the small kernels generally leak here and there and make a mess (not too bad though)

Unique doesn't work well for me either

Power Pistol, HS6, flows very good out of my Pro Auto Disc, very consistant chrono results:)

Both powders cover your caliber needs.

All of these metered very consistant in my pro auto disk, Titegroup, Bullseye, HS-6, WST.

Vihtavuori n320, Win 231/HP38, Titegroup are all very accurate in my LEE disc system.

I use PowerPistol for my 9mm and 45ACP
Universal Clays for 38Spl
H110 for 357 Mag

And they all work great on my auto disk.

HP 38, AA #'s 5 & 7. Bullseye works well too.

I'll add another +1 to HP-38. I use it in .40, .45, and reduced .357 loads.

For full tilt .357, I've only used 2400, but have no complaints. It has also been one of the most accurate metering powder of my Lee measure thus far.

Will be reloading for 9, 40 and 357.
W231/HP-38 is a great metering powder in my Auto-Disk. It will work well in all 3 although you won;t get the highest velocities. AA#5 is also a Ball powder and will add velocity. In the .357 Magnum W296/H110 or AA#9 will give you full power magnum loads. They are also Ball powders and will meter very well.

Titegroup is my mainstay and I use the autodisk.
Any ball powder will work great in the Lee autodisk.
Small ball powders like Accurate #9 will work great but can sometimes leak a little because the balls are so small.

I've had good luck with Bullseye, Green Dot and W231 in the auto disc.

2400 and Bullseye meter well in the adjustable charge bar. Those are the only two I've tried. I've been told that the ACB is not very good for metering anything in smaller charge weights.

I use HP-38, Bullseye, and Power Pistol all without any problems in mine.

September 1, 2011, 10:20 AM
Bullseye and Power Pistol. (don't mix them up, they look just alike)

WSF would do all of those cartridges well, but good luck finding .357 load data.

I second TiteGroup. I have used it in the auto disk for 9, 38, 45acp, and 45lc. It has always metered very well and consistent.

Though several other powders will meter well in the Lee Auto Disk. Any of the ball powders will work the best.

September 1, 2011, 11:25 AM
I use WW231, HP38, AA#5, Bullseye and Red Dot. They all meter great in my Auto Disk. Never varies more than .1 gr.

Thanks for all the replies. I will be headed to Cabela's to pick up some powder.
