1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    If you have stray, homeless, pitiful-looking dippers:

    I'd re-home them and put them to work.

    Hey, I still prefer using the Lee dippers when I load my .223; I have and RCBS powder measures but I can dip with the best of them. It's fairly accurate and I'm assurred of no static issues. BT-100dc

    Once you have your 'technique' down, it is pretty hard to get AS accurate as a dipper.

    Mainly, I load just waterfowl loads, and rather than weigh everything, I confirm that my dips are what they are supposed to be, then I .. load.

    I have plenty of yellow ones, new and old, but I could use some more red, black & adjustable ones.

    shhhhh ...

    Have people quit making their own dippers out of pistol brass and a piece of #10 solid electrical wire as a handle ???

    I suppose so, ... hmmmm 30cal Carbine, reckon?

    I'd love to have a "Scoopy" that measures +45gn of 4756 or Blue Dot (the Scoopy tops out at 11gn of Bullseye). Alas

    I have three Longshot loads, 29.15gn, 31.25gn and 34.15gn .... either side of 2.4cc; four SR 4756 loads from 28.2 to 43gn, a couple of PB and a couple of SR 4756.

    Luckily, a couple of them are spot on with Lee dippers, then I have to get the trickler out ...

    P.I.T.A.

    I like dippers, but a micrometer drum is sounding more attractive all the time.

    I remember doing the same thing, and etching the side of the dipper 4350 33.7 ...

    I drilled, tapped and threaded a primer pocket on a ??? case once, and ran a 6 or 8 x ?? bolt up making it 'adjustable' but it was too long to dip 'handy'.

    It's a lot easier to take an emery board to a 2.80cc Lee Dipper and make it a 2.70cc dipper.
