That is saying a lot, as our older powder measures (not Frankford) were commonly off plus/minus a tenth of a grain after a few dozen rounds. THAT was not a problem with this unit.
For the record: The reference marks do not represent powder charges in grains…. they are reference marks that allow you to adjust the meter tube for precise charges and record the setting for future use.

- Once again: Works with ball, flake, cylinder, and extruded powders
- Metal universal meter tube with precise reference marks (eliminates the need for multiple metering units/tubes)
