I'm need a new powder measure, thinking about Hornady's Lock-N-load auto charge powder dispenser, anyone use it, opinions please.

    Nope, I use a newer Lee Drum (leaps and bounds ahead and better than the Disc Cavities thingy) for my Turret Press for handgun reloading and an RCBS Uniflow or Lyman DPS 1200 digital dispenser for rifle loads.

    Hornady makes good stuff, so it should be a good choice.

    Also looking at Lyman's Gen6 compact touch, any thoughts ??

    A buddy has the Hornady. Works fine. His occasionally runs too quick and overcharges. But his is also an older one. Not sure if they've corrected that with programming. They have one in the bargain cave at Cabelas here for $200.

    I have the RCBS Chargemaster. Personally, I'd spend the little extra and go with it. Great powder measure. And they are programmable, if someone had the desire and a little know how. I haven't touched mine. Works perfectly. Maybe a little slow sometimes, but it's spot on every time.

    I have one and like it. It can be a bit finicky during setup but I cannot compare it to anything else. When I use it, it measures powder as fast as I can load rounds comfortably. It makes loading rifle rounds quick, easy and accurate. I also use it to sort my bullets prior to loading.

    I have the RCBS Charge Master. Never tried any other electronic so I can't compare. It works.

    I ended up getting the Lyman Gen-6, it has all the features I need and the price was much less than the Hornady or other makes, got it from Cabelas for $210.00 no shipping charge and used my points so it cost me nothing.

    I inherited a Lyman DPS 1200 with some kinda upgrade, it works very well when I use it. Yours should throw on the $$$$.
