    I've been out of the loop for about 10 years now and am looking for a top-of-the-line powder measure. Price is secondary. What say you? Thanks...

    I love my Lyman 55.

    From what I've read, the RCBS Uniflow, Redding and Lyman are pretty comparable. I'd personally stay away from Lee.

    Rcbs also has a cool little "low-dose" powder measure that has different inserts for different charge weights, including a matrix for charge weights & different powder types - I've heard it's helpful for the really low charges.

    I have a Lyman and a Redding and am well satisfied with both.

    I have both RCBS and Hornady which are both accurate powder measures. I'm sure there are others but these are the only ones that I have personal experience with.

    Are you looking for a powder dispenser/ scale combo?

    Or are you looking for a case-activated measure that gets attached to a powder die?

    Or just a stand-alone?

    Not much info to go on.

    I have both a RCBS Uniflo and a Lee Pro disc. The Lee is just as accurate as the RCBS. They both work great.

    I have a Uniflow and use it for my pistols loading and it it is very good. I have two of the Benchrest powder measures from Redding and they are excellent. The Benchrest measures with the micrometer settings gives you the ablity to dial in and repeat your previous loadings with ease once you set them up. Their accuracy is excellant.
    Proper and consistent operation of the measure will give you the accuracy you seek.

    ^ +1 So much so, my RCBS 505 beam scale never gets out of the cabinet.
