I wanted a powder measure to dedicate to my .22 Hornet and settled on the Lyman 55. Got it yesterday and immediately got to cleaning it and dumping a bunch of Lil'Gun thru it. Today, I adjusted it and got around to finding the technique it likes. 11.3 to 11.4 gr Lil'Gun and a Zia 52 is what the gun likes. I was able to get it set in the middle using a slow upstroke, slow downstroke and using the knocker once after the drop. I tried lots of combinations, but slow, slow, knock seemed most consistent so I proceeded with the test.
10 drops gave me 8 at 11.35 and 2 at 11.40 on a Tanita 1210 scale! I think I got a good one!
Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas as well!
