    I mostly load Clays/International Clays, both very fine flake powder. Before I had the plug installed I'd get a lot of flakes on the bench as I loaded. With it installed the problem is less. I guess the reason given above is why the hole is there. The plug keeps the powder from filtering out of the hole.

    I've loaded many tens of thousands of rounds on mine and have never had a problem with the plug falling out.

    Put a piece of masking tape over the hole. Sooner or later you will loose it.
