    Reloading Scales and Powder Trickler

    As per title, I'm after a set of powder scales (balance beam type) and a powder trickler. Needed to complete my reloading setup.

    Cheers,
    Alex

    The best powder trickler I own started out life as a red KFC teaspoon

    The White McDs ones work just as well too

    They beat the Hornady and RCBS tricklers hands down.

    Cheers

    The best trickler is the little scoop you get in a tin of baby formula, just glue up the hole in the bottom or modify it to trickle out of

    The best trickler is your fingers. Pour some powder into a bowl, use a spoon to get 99% onto scales then a few pinches with the fingers to top up Best thing is you already have possession of said fingers

    That's what I do, but some people have some pretty greasy mitts on them so it doesn't work for everyone
