Lee double stack and adjustable charge bar

Well I was having trouble finding a combination of two discs to drop WIN 748 charge I was working with. After trying a few "almost there" settings, I got to wondering whether the adjustable charge bar could be stacked with a disc, and yes it can. Allowed me to get right where I needed to be. Not at home and cant remember if the charge bar was on top or bottom, I think it was bottom...it would only work one way.

No, charge bar will only fit on top of disk due to index pins on the bottom of the disk. But the problem you'll run into is inconsistent powder drops as the adjustable charge bar will be loose on top of the disk and larger than disk hole setting on the charge bar will keep some powder on top of the disk hole.

For me, a better solution came from stacking two charge bars. With slight filing of the index tabs, I was able to make a tight fitting stack that provided much greater powder drop capacities than two largest disk holes (I metered up to around 47 grains of I4895/H4895/Varget and 48 grains of RL15 and I didn't even max out the adjustments).
