    Power thrower

    After a cheap and cheerful power measure/thrower, I still weigh everything else by hand but the 9mm is becoming a pain and it makes sense given the volume I'm loading.

    look at the lee auto disc thrower if still made from reloaders . Throws the charge and flares the case at same time with fix charge inserts loaded 10s of thousands rounds many years ago with one .

    I have made a number of powder measures using22LR 9mm and 38 cases trimmed and polished of varying charges and use these almost exclusively. I have redding and Lyman throwers but get better accuracy with my measures. i load in batches of 250 and find the powder charging time to be minimal. I load as low as 1.2grains of AS30 or clays (use a 22lr case cut down) up to 21grains of 2400 and lots of loads in between. A very good powder measure will cost but give you good accuracy and low price ones will give you inconsistency.

    If I can find my Lyman Thrower that I've used about three times in 18 years, you can have it.

    Edit: Found it.

    In longrange riflery, trajectory is the pure science part. Gravity is a constant for our purposes.
    Wind is in the art department.
    Light is pure fucking voodoo.

    There's a nice 1928 Ishevsk Mosin at the local big green store, all matching numbers, accessories with it and stamped with bow and arrow rather than arrow in triangle, so 1928 being the year they changed the stamp it must be early 1928. I thought of you but I guess you're out of your Mosin phase, and probably saving for that auction coming up.....
