    Yea! Send it back to RCBS right now! Will it ever do it again? Who knows. If it does, it will be when you are not looking. You want to shoot the round that gets the overload? This is truly very dangerous!!!

    This is the electronic measurer that includes a scale that shuts of the powder delivery? If so, I would suggest that a mechanical means is the only truly reliable way to deliver powder. Rarely does the powder measuring chamber change volume. If you keep the mechanical measure clean and dry, it will always deliver the corrrect load, at least within a half grain. A five grain mistake can be deadly! And if RCBS says yours can not be made to do it again, don't believe them. Insist on a new one, at least, or go for a regular mechanical one.
