We had a good thread here, but it looks like it got indexed away.. .The archive isn't searchable, and I can't remember a time frame that it was posted on to find it for you..

Anyway, in case this thread doesn't get much traffic here's a couple of threads from other forums that might help you..

I didn't know an RCBS powder measure would work on a LCT! :wow:

Do you manually drop the powder into each case with that setup, or does the die still auto measure it for you? I am just curious.

They don't usually. I have a tailor made bracket holding the measure above the die and I manually crank the lever to dump the powder. Not an ideal situation by any means. One day I'll have a Hornady LNL!

What do you not like about the lee powder disk system?

Absolutely nothing. The RCBS powder measure came first then the LCT. Didn't want to buy another measure!

DP if you use the RCBS or Hornady CAPD with the measure it will auto dispense just like the Lee setup.

Here's my 'bench', except in leather. Yes I'm serious.

This is still there for most of my rifle stuff

This was my old bench in the house.

Looks like some of that cheap BLUE paint rubbed off on the front of your bench. Rust can't be far behind. :whistling:

Never had a rust problem, it doesn't sit still long enough. I heard that is why the other company went with red so the rust isn't so noticeable.:whistling:

Made from plywood and 2x4's. Screwed together, so I can move it if needed.
