I have the RCBS trickler and it is probably my favorite of the "optional" equipment that I own. For less than $15 it was a great buy. I have used all types of powders from 800-X to large stick rifle powders like IMR 4350. It works great - very easy to modulate.

However, I wouldn't worry about missing out on anything if your current process is keeping you happy. Some guys use an empty shotgun case with decent results too.
