Has anyone had any issue with Zip or True Blue metering well? Since they are double-base spherical in theory they should be fine. I just wanted to get input before I place my order for smokeless.

I use both and they meter extremely well in both my RCBS Chargemaster and LnL Progressive powder drop.

Tac meters very well for me. I think it should be the same shape or very similar.

Cool. I managed to find other threads where Ramshot powders were reported as being good metering choices. If worst had come to worst, I'd just use W231 for my pistols. :)

Zip is a flattened ball ball pretty much identical in shape and size to W-231.

True Blue is a very fine ball powder (not flattened) that meters like fine sand. Like AA#2, but even finer.

Walkalong has it pegged. Both are excellent powders and True Blue does meter like fine sand. ;)
