    Lee loader is doable, a nice to have anyhow as a SHTF loader. Can even use it in the field no problem.

    Lee scales are ok and quite precise, however must be used in a draft free environment.
    Drafts can cause erratic readings.

    Lee scales are very precise, but take a while to damp down, but if you are patient they are a very cost effective way to weigh out your charges

    Why? There are plenty of beam scales out there that damp properly, RCBS 505s come up almost weekly, redding 502s nearly as often.

    As for trickling what of it? On a budget then the Hornady manual trickler is inexpensive and something I always advise new Reloader to purchase, coupled with lee scoop set and decent beam scales and you are well on your way.

    For those who load a lot then one of 1066’s target master electronic auto tricklers is the logical upgrade, very accurate and can be set up to trickle one granule if powder at a time if that’s how accurate you want to be. I throw a couple of points of a grain short of the required charge with a cheap lee thrower, pop pan on scale and trickle the last bit of powder with the target master, seating the bullet on the previously charged case while the powder trickles. A very fast and repeatable way of loading and cheaper than the charge master by a long way.

    Target master is an awesome bit of kit and made in the uk.
    Thanks for looking
