I like like Lyman 55 that another shooter spoke of, also I have an an rcbs uniflow, and a Dillon. Some say that the ideal cavity to measure a given powder may have some height to dia ratio. For the trail boss I might try a baffled powder reservoir. To get meaningful standard deviations one might need quite a few samples..lots more than 5 or ten.

One can make their own dippers too.

Have a great day today unless you have made other plans :-).

I know some folks who have had good results using spent cartridges with handles brazed on.
