    Not necessary just weigh the powder in the dipper on your scale.

    Because it really does not matter what the chart says I guarantee it will not be the same as the chart.

    The dipper is a good way to get an non varying charge from the same batch of powder. After all all loading machines are volume dispensing as far as powder charge goes.

    I have a set of dippers but they are the newer yellow ones and only have the volume on them.

    I have a complete set of dipers. 13 in all. mine are black in color. The chart for them is a slide chart, which as you slide the card by each dipper number reads the amount of powder each dipper would dispence. A number 20 would dispence 2.3 grains of red dot. A 39 4.5 grains of red dot. 48 different powders are indicated for each dipper by using the slide chart. My dipper set is dated 1966, I probably bought the set in 1969.

    Hmmmm, somewhere in my garage (the alternate universe that things disappear to) I've got a set of yellow Lee dippers. Used to use them a lot about 30 years ago. Somehow reloading was more fun when I was a kid.

    I've got a complete set new in the box if anyone would be interested. They are yellow and in perfect condition. Contact me at the above email and we'll work out the details. Maybe even a trade for something????
