    Can someone tell me what combination of disk I would use to throw 7.0 gr. of unique? I can't find the table to save my life. Maybe someone could scan it and send it to me. Any help would certainly be appreciated.

    Paul, Did you measure after you did a drop on different scales? I have a beam and a digital scale. I have found there drops to be about .5 over what they say it drops. So I set mine up as per digi reading. Unique is what I mostly use and found there 7gr always gives me 7.5 with unique. I was hunting for 6.8 gr Unique and figured 7 ok. Maybe its a lawyer thing. Did you get it to work out for you? hanks Bob

    As I frequently post, if you don't mind spending an extra $7.60 plus shipping?, the adjustable charge bar eliminates the need for most of the disk usage. Just dial in what weight you want, confirm it with your scale and you're good to go. Makes load or caliber changes super simple.

    Midway gets MSRP or $9.99 for them:

    I only need to swap over to my micro-disk when I'm loading .380ACP.

    The table called for .76 disk. I had a forty and a thirty six (double disk). It was throwing 7.4 gr. of unique. I switched to a .76 disk (single) and it throw a consistant 6.9. Close enough. I alway check about every fourth or fifth load.

    ++ for the Adjustable Charge Bar it sure makes it alot easier to find a certain drop without always changeing discs for the drop you need. Its a PITA to always turn off the valve, drain what is in the chamber, unscrew the hopper, and try another disc. When all you really have to do with ACB is dial the drop you want. Really cuts down on time finding the correct powder measure.:)
