View Full Version : Redding 10X powder measure
Does anyone have an opinion or experience with these? I use a RCBS uniflow but would like something a little more accurate with the small charges associated with handguns. Is there something else I should look at?
I'm looking forward to reading responses to this.
When it comes to pistol loading I don't see where you'll gain a thing by changing from a Uniflow. It has traditionally been a very accurate measure, for both pistol and rifle powders... I have one that is well over 40 years old and still throws very accurate charges.
Having had the pleasure of shooting with some very, very good bullseye shooters in my lifetime I've still never met a shooter that good tell the difference between trickled pistol charges and measure thrown charges. You simply can't hold steady enough to ever see a difference in accuracy... assuming there is any difference.
I have a 10X, but have never used anything else, so I can't make a direct comparison to rifle size measures.
It's been working for me for around 5 or 6 years, I forget when I bought it. Very precise with small charges of most powders. Unique is still challenging, but other flake powders like Clays and Universal meter very accurately.
Lately I've been working with SR 7625 and it's been spot on every time I check it whether it's 3.6 grains for 9mm or 6.4 grains for .44 spl.
Cast iron frame, chrome plated steel rotor, micrometer head, made in USA. Expensive but I'm glad I bought it, I'll never have to replace it.
d--nit Jack; we're trying to spend some money here. It's people like you that hold back the economy from recovery.
Redding 10X powder measure... one time expenditure of $285.00.
Flowers, dinners at 4 and 5 star restaurants and Viagra... priceless.
Now, who's holding back the economy?
I "updated" my reloading outfit around 25 years ago. Landed a good job and decided to buy all the goodies I couldn't afford when first starting out in the reloading game. The only piece of gear that didn't payoff was switching from a Uniflow to a 10x. It simply didn't work any better or more accurately then my old work horse. Sold it to a friend who didn't have a measure and we both ended up happy.
