    I was looking at the dispensers in some catalogs. I initially was thinking about getting one of those instead of a plastic one for smokeless reloading. I ended getting a Uniflow with the plastic tube.

    But everynow and then I look at them while browsing though the catalogs and the one thing I can not understand is: Why in the world do they make such long drop tubes for them? :rolleyes:It's almost like the dispenser is supposed to be mounted off the ceiling.:what:

    Measure the powder into a small container, then pour the powder through a long drop tube to get consistent powder compression under the wad and bullet.

    Remember, you do not want any space in the case with BP.

    Gclefton nailed it in one.Air space in a BP CTG load is a bad thing.
