    Rubber Cap

    Thanks for the photo Kyle. I misplaced mine. That little cap prevents powder from tricking down on the platen, while you're away.
    I don't know if it was the intent of RCBS to include that little cap, for that purpose, but that's what I've used it for.

    Bro.D the chargemaster lite is a nice unit to get. I have the chargemaster 1500 and just bought the chargemaster lite, I carry it in my loading trailer when I go to my shoots, its more convenient to carry around than my 1500. If you decide to get one call brownells they are on sale right now $219 with free shipping

    Just to add to Gabe's Comments

    $219 for the Lite is a very good price. I was able to get mine for $199 on sale at Natchez last September. Their current price is $245 and they are out of stock so if you need something immediately, the Brownells deal is your best option.

    Also, just so you are aware, you may find the older Chargemaster 1500 on closeout pricing here and there. RCBS has discontinued that unit. Repair options, even during the warranty period, would be uncertain. So, if you decide to purchase anything, the Lite, which is a fine unit, would be your best investment. Good luck.

    I think that the first time we all shot a bench gun and shot that amazing small group we put all ourselves in debt,Is that an addiction or an obsession?

    scale

    Thanks for the replies fellas. At this point I'm going to go with the Chargemaster Lite. I think Mike is right that we sometimes obsess over the speck in the ointment. A main reason that I am going this way is that due to the way I tune my gun. Weight works better in my head than clicks. To me weight stays the same (as long as you calibrate your scale) while clicks is a moving target because of temp throughout the day. Anyway...thanks! If I find anything of interest I'll let you know. Bro.D

    Bro is actually shopping a handy powder dispenser...... to all of you'se reading this from outside the competition shooting arena, this isn't really a "scale" in the term often used by long range benchresters..... this is a handy powder thrower for 100-300-300yd shooting. It's no more accurate than a Lee Perfect Powder Measure but it's WIKKID more handy and usable for certain things. Like working up loads.

    "BR Scale means two completely different things to 100/200 BR shooters VS 600/1000 BR shooters. I'm one of the guys that uses a CM to dispense into identically weighted pans (4) from which I trickle onto my "scale" with my fingertips getting loads down to the single kernel.

    unless I'm dropping 133 for a PPC..... in which case 5-10 kernels don't mean squat

    I'm an A&D dealer. If you need a better price on a scale, I can usually beat any online price.
