    Does anyone know how many grains of Alliant 2400 does the Lee .7cc powder dipper hold? I went to there web site,they have listings for all other powder but not this one. It's my luck that this would be the powder I have on hand.
    Thanks,Tracy

    I'm assuming you meant .7cc and NOT 7cc.
    According to the sheet that came with my Lee 357 dies, .7cc of 2400 should be about 9.45 grains.
    You can always give Lee a quick call, they are usually pretty helpful.
    A 20$ set of beam scales would be a good investment... :rolleyes:

    A scale is a must. You never want to trust something like that without checking your load on a scale. The dippers will usually throw less than what is stated on the guide probably for this reason.

    Lee dippers are O K as long as you aren't loading at or near maximum powder charge.

    I, too, recommend a good scale, whether it be a beam or a digital.
