I have a Hornady LNL. It has a case activated, rotary powder dispenser. The rotary dispenser hates stick powders. In fact, the term "stick" can apply to both the shape of the powder, and it's effect on the dispenser...it sticks fairly regularly with this stuff. I can't use the powder measure at all with H1000...it's just too big a headache. I use lots of that powder in my 7mm mag and I tried using the LNL powder measure to save some time on measuring charges...but it's never gonna happen. I use Varget when loading 5.56. Varget meters better than H1000...however...once every 50 shells or so the dispenser will jam up hard enough to deform the mouth of the case I'm trying to fill. It rolls the case mouth inward, then the sticks get jammed in the mouth with the rest of the load sitting on top of the jam in the funnel. When I pull the ram upward (shells coming out of the dies) the blocked powder falls all over the place...the shell plate, in the primer track, the floor...everywhere. Whenever this happens I have to take all the shells off, remove the shell plate, primer slide, and primer slide spring, then clean the shell plate, clean the base underneath the shell plate, clean the primer slide track, then reinstall the primer slide, primer slide spring, base plate, tighten the nut, and go again. I may have to switch to a different type of powder...I don't like stopping even one time to do that...but I've had to do it several times in the past two days. What's a good non-extruded powder for 5.56?
