    shubble72,

    Do you have any static electricity present in your powder bottle?

    Are you finishing the handle stroke with a slight delay at the bottom and then letting it gently snap back up to the top?

    Some loaders are finicky about certain things.

    I put a strip of dryer sheet in the bottle. Pinch it with the cap so it's suspended.

    Static gone.

    Titewad seems do do this, and other powders don't, at least not for me.

    Titewad drops fine fo rme in a PW on a non grounded bench. Very unifurm drops.

    A real dilemma you have Scott. Lotta Pfffts.

    Also try, empting the powder bottle and stick the dryer sheet inside the bottle and use a stick to push the sheet around and wipe the inside of the bottle. Remove the sheet and your ready to go. Lasts a long time. I've been doing this for years. If you do have static electricity, check what your standing on. Some rugs or mats make thigs worse.

    Later, Ken

    Ken and you other guys. Is this more of a problem with Titewad? or any powder?
