Of course you could get a RCBS chargemaster if bucks are no object.

Yes. Invest in a powder dispenser makes ez work of pistols. DONT BUY LEE MEASURING SCOOPS THEY ARE INACCURATE. U want to load by weight not volume.

I believe you will find the Dllon Powder measure to be pretty dang precise with the right powder. Small kernal extruded, spherical and ball will give darn near match results. It is hard to better by weighing. I load rifle ammo that will shoot sub minute groups and I don't weigh each charge. Much of the distrust of powder measures comes from non-Dillon equipment.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
