    I've been reloading for about a year. I've been using a stand mounted powder measure (Lee) and Lee dippers. I use a Lee turret press. I want to know if it's possible to use another brand (RCBS) of powder dispenser that will mount on my Lee expander die or some other powder through die. Basically, I hate Lee's Auto-Disk measures. They stick with AA #7 & #9.

    I don't know about the RCBS system but the Hornady Lock N Load powder measure with the case activated system and powder through expander dies works pretty well for me. I use it or the Lee auto disk measure on my LNL AP press depending on how I feel.

    The Hornady L-N-L powder measure with the case activate system will work on any press that takes 7/8-14 threads. Besides the measure, you will need a powder drop die, expander drop tube, and activation the linkage.

    You can get a powder drop die for each cartridge you load and keep it set up for each cartridge.

    I believe there was a thread her a month or so ago where a fellow converted a RCBS Uniflow to work with the L-N-L powder die. But, I've slept since then.

    With the RCBS you don't use a die, the measure is threaded the same as dies.
    You can get case-activating linkage from places like MidwayUSA.

    Not sure how that would work with trying to expand the case mouth.
    But it works well for .223
