Measuring 1.4 gr Bullseye powder

Post by xxper on Wed Jul 11, 2018 4:03 pm

I am just starting to reload 32 S&W Long .I am planning on loading 1.4 grs of bullseye.

My question what are you using to measure this small amount? I have tried my Harrells br measure and it doe not work throwing that small of a charge.

All suggestion will be appreciated.

Thank you,
Jim

I throw just under my target load, then trickle the rest.

I reload Hornady 60 grain JHP XTP .32 ACP.  I use 2.1 grains of Bullseye.  My press is a Dillon 550 and I use the Dillon powder measure with the X Small Dillon powder bar that has the UniqueTek micrometer installed.

Greetings,

I have a Redding BR30 with the Pistol insert.

It meters quite well with Bullseye, VV-310, TiteWAD, TiteGroup, WST, any of the small grain powders.

For mass production, I load with a Star using interchangeable bushings.

Currently, I load 1.27 grains of TiteWAD (0.155cc) in the 32 S&W Long with a 100 grain HBWC.

Looking forward to your test reports using 1.4 grains of Bullseye.

Cheers,

Dave

I use tweezers. It’s slow but accurate.

However, between me and Dave Wilson, I’d recommend going with Dave’s advice.

When loading 1.5 gr BE 32 acp I do one of two things for the super small loads. For single stage loading I use the Redding 10x pistol meter and have very repeatable and accurate results. For bulk loading I use the Arredondo powder bar in my 650. With ball powder I have 100% repeatability /accuracy.

I've used a Lee Auto-Drum Powder Measure down to 1.7 gr of Bullseye powder accurately.  I may have gone down to 1.4 grains, but can't recall that for sure.  I use two mechanical (0.1 gr accuracy) scales to check the powder weight when reloading.  I'm not sure how many rounds can be loaded with the Lee Auto-Drum before consistency falls off, but I've been impressed they can sell a $40 powder measure that works as advertised.  Admittedly, the powder measure leaks a bit of Bullseye powder in use (which is annoying) but the charge is consistent.

I Have two Dillon 550s both with the UniqueTek micrometer powder adjustment. I load 1.3 and 1.4 of Bullseye, WST, and now N310 with extreme consistency. I have the Dillon Small powder measure on,one, the Arredondo on the other. Both excellent.
