Lyman Combo vs RCBS Chargemaster
« on: November 16, 2008, 09:44:28 pm »
Looking at a Lyman 1200 DPS3 combo.

 Does anyone have anything good/bad to say about it. Right now it's about $70 cheaper than the RCBS.

I had a Lyman digital scale when they fisrt came out and was not at all pleased. Sent it back and bought a Dillon.

 I'm tired of weighing every load even with a trickler.


                Thanks , Goldy

    That one I've never seen around here.  But someone around here will know.  I use the Lee scale and am going to get a digital one when my house finally gets back together (and I pay off all those bills, but I'm not going to think about that just now...)

    These are automatic dispensers for powder. RCBS Chargemaster vs Lyman 1200.
    I've got a Dillon electronic scale now but the powder I load doesn't give as good of accuracy by droppping charges as I get with weighed loads. I shoot bench rest matches.

    Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I understand "serious" bechresters go by volume rather than weight a lot of the time? 

    If you are serious about the sport, I think you're going to have to hand charge and trickle as well as all the extra case prep stuff if you want to be competitive.
    This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries
