RCBS ChargeMaster Combo - worth it?
#1
I need some help here.

We have pretty much all we need to reload except for a scale.

We are going digital.

We have been looking at the RCBS ChargeMaster Combo.

Does anyone have this outfit or know of anyone that has it and can give a review of it?

Is the dispenser worth the money?

How well does it work?

Would you get both items or get the scale and a good powder measure?

We would like to purchase immediately so tell me all you can from your experiences and what you have heard.

Thanks.

Much appreciated.

God bless!!

I used to reload with a friend who had the combo set and it worked great.

Yes I would recommend getting one. As soon as I can afford one I will be buying one myself.

I had one from Lee which was the Pro 1200 I think. It started throwing wrong weights. Now I am back to my balance beam scale.

I use a standard digital scale (20.00). What are you going to be reloading?

I tried one of those before and it was not consistent with the weights. I reload for accuracy and those cheap scales just did not work for me. But might work for him.

Our main reloading goals are broad.

Pistol:
.357/.38 Spec
9MM

Rifle:
.223
.22-250
.243
.30-30
7.62x39MM

You can see there are many calibers.

Some to get down regarding precision and some for less expensive plinking/target.

Pistol would be self-defense.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks.

God bless!!

If your going to reload for those calibers then i would get the scale you mentioned. I only use my little digital for big caliber reloads (220-230grns)

You have to calibrate it once in awhile. i check my cheapo with my rcbs beam scale, it checks out fine. A half grain + or - wont hurt for what I'm using it for.

I use both a digital and mechanical scale, use one to proof the other.

I've been reloading for many years and just recently acquired a digital scale. The standard powder measures have always done fine by me. I use a balance beam to weigh with even though I have the digital, I just trust it more. I've tried different powder measures and believe it or not the Lee is my favorite. I'm sorry I can't offer advice on the specific unit you asked about but to be honest I haven't felt the need to spend that kind of money on a piece of equipment that may fail electronically when my mechanical equipment is every bit as reliable as I need for a fraction of the cost.
There are three types of people in the world:
Those who make things happen,
Those who watch things happen,
And those who wonder what happened.

How good do the powder measures work?

I have also been looking at these as well.

Do I need to buy the stand or would it attach directly to my press (Rock Chucker)?

Through today and tomorrow Cabelas is having a sale on reloading equipment and so I see this as my chance to get the final pieces to start reloading.

Thanks.

God bless!!
