Lee Powder Measure Accuracy
I have the Lee Progressive 1000 press. I find the powder measure consistently throws light loads. I load with Unique and follow the instructions. However, the loads are up to 2 grains light. Do any of you find the same thing when using this powder measure.

Consistency is easy to adjust for ;)

I had the Lee Perfect and it hated Unique. I can't speak to the Lee Autodisk. Though I seem to recall them being a bit hit or miss with light fluffy flake powders. I switched to AA#5 until I bought a less fussy powder measure.

I don't have a problem loading 9mm or 40 S&W with the auto disc. For 223 I use a perfect thrower and a turret press.

yeah, i dont have the autodisk either but the perfect powder measure and its anything BUT! I have found that i need to measure every charge. But i am anal that way. I have become a little less fussy about it...i dont worry so much if i am 1/10th of grain high or low....;)

I'm loaded probably 8K rounds using my auto disc and never had a problem. I don't use Unique powder though.
