    Does anyone know if Hornaday Case Activated Powder Drop will work on the Hornaday Bench Rest Powder Measure? Or will it only work on the Lock-N-Load Powder Measure?

    Thanks in advance,
    Dale

    Hornady told me it would work on the LNL only. "IF" the bench rest measure uses the same drum as the LNL, I would think it would work. The older Hornady measures will not work.

    I know it will work with a Uniflow. The RCBS linkage is identical to Hornady's, except for price.

    I wonder why Hornady says that. I just purchased a Hornaday Bench Rest Powder Measure and the Case Activated Powder Drop and every thing seems to fit and function fine. I am getting ready to start testing it to see how consistant it is. I think I may need to paint it becouse the red looks out of place sitting on top of my Dillon 550.

    It must use the same drum as the LNL. The older version will not work; I tried.

    I'm curious about this as well- I'm considering the purchase of a Hornady Bench Rest Powder Measure for my heavy pistol loads. If my studying about this measure is correct it has a metering insert size somewhere between the regular LNL pistol and rifle inserts.

    I did a little testing on my new Hornaday Bench Rest Powder Measure with the Hornady Case Activated Powder Drop installed on my Dillon RL550B.The results are with IMR 4895 powder into a 223 case and my target was 23.3 grains, with a Dillon D-Terminator scale. There was no spilled powder or any sign of a powder bridge.

    Drop # Grains
    1 - 23.3
    2 - 23.3
    3 - 23.3
    1 - 23.3
    5 - 23.2
    6 - 23.3
    7 - 23.4
    8 - 23.2
    9 - 23.3
    10- 23.3
    11- 23.3
    12- 23.4
    13- 23.2
    14- 23.3
    15- 23.3
    16- 23.2
    17- 23.3
    18- 23.3
    19- 23.3
    20- 23.3

    Then a 10 drop total of 232.6 grains for an average of 23.26
