    Anyone ever set up a CC camera or camera/laptop combo to monitor their powder charges. I have to crane my neck (not a big deal) to check. I wonder if a video alternative would be a good solution. Should not need to very expensive I'd assume. Pros, Cons?

    A simple little mirror doesn't run on batterys and require your undivided attention.
    Or a powder-check die.

    But I use 50 round loading blocks and check'm all at once with my calibrated eyeball.
    Can't imagine doing it any other way.

    Ah, a mirror. Good idea as usual, RC. I think I'll give that a whirl.

    I should mention this would be for a progressive.

    I figured as much.

    You can probably find a swivel mounted parts inspection mirror at the auto parts store for very little. That and a hose clamp should get you fixed up.

    RC has it right, use a loading block, 54 years of loading and I still use this method.
    50 rounds at a time.

    What are you loading on? A strong clip-on light and a quick look while seating typically works depending on the height of the case if you don't use a power cop. What is your setup?
