Lyman Powder Pal

I ordered the Powder Pal from Dillon Mfg. It seemed to be a good solution for those with shaky hands or for folks that had a tendency to spill a few grains when filling brass with measured loads.

I have not used it yet; has anyone tried it yet?

I have had one for years.

Greatest scale pan ever made!

I can't even remember the last time I used a powder funnel.

That's good to hear, rc. Fits perfectly on the aluminum pan I've rigged with a ferrule to use on the Gemini electronic scale.
Did the plastic Lyman pan eliminate the static that can have an effect on some powders?

Haven't had any static problems in years either, after I started using this stuff.
Just a light mist on the floor, and the measure, and my silk slip!

Poof! (Or Hiss??)

No more static cling ever again!

Have one myself, great little product! Easy to use and a couple of taps with a fingertip after pouring powder into a case makes sure you get all of the powder!
