    Hi I just bought a lee loader in 45 colt so I can load my own ammo for my blackhawk. Ive bought most of the tools needed except a scale. I was going to get one but it was almost 60 dollars for the cheapest one. Im going to save up and get it in a couple of weeks. What I would like to know is how much one scoop of titegroup from the .7cc dipper in the kit amounts to in grain weight. I would like to be able to make some loads to use this weekend but I want to make sure it will be safe. Or should I wait till I get a scale? I will be putting it under a Hornady 200 grn swc.

    Personally, I'd wait the few weeks and weight them yourself.

    +1 to strat81 however if you feel lucky go to lees website they have the conversion charts you can look it up yourself but you are better off waiting

    With my lot of Titegroup I am coming up with 8.2 to 8.4 with the .7CC scoop depending on how I settle the scoup.

    Hodgdon's online data shows 7.7 Grs. Titegroup with a 200 Gr. cast LRNFP

    So, that would be a bit much as far as standard pressure .45 Colt data goes.

    The .5CC scoup gives me right at 6.1 Grs. Titegroup.

    Please do get a scale ASAP.

    You are on your own with this info. Use at your own risk.

    a .7 cc dipper will give you 8.3 grains of titegroup.


    now same time you do not have to go out and get the most expensive scale out there. i bought an expensive scale then i have a full set of lee dippers. then i bought a very cheap digitial scale. i have checked them all and they are very very close to each other. + or - .02-.04 grains of each other. Now if you are planning on shooting at or above max loads. 0-.02-.04 grains will not make any difference. You probably would not be able to even see the difference on a chronograph. So with that type in grain scale on ebay and see what comes up. Then save up buy the good expensive scale then compare. However to be able to get the most accurate precise measurements you would have to have grain certified weights. then you make your decision. and go from there.

    Thanks for the replys. I plan to get a scale in a couple of weeks, I was just wanting to be sure that if i used the scoop before then that it wouldnt be way over the limit.

    That should be a fine "+P" load for a Blackhawk... if you want to take our word for it. (get a scales to check your dippers yourself before you get hurt)
