Metal shavings from powder measure

Recommended Posts

I know I saw this posted before, but I couldn't find it. I'm reloading .223 on an RL1050 and noticed on top of the tool head bright silver pieces of metal shavings I presume are coming from the powder measure as they are at the base of the measure. I have to believe this isn't good. In addition, the powder weights are all over the place... +/- 1 grain. The powder check system is catching the weight variations, but I have to believe somethins isn't right. Any ideas how to best address the issue? Thanks!!

Sorry, I should have said that. The pic was just brass cycling through. No powder or primers. I had been using Win 748 but I completely emptied and cleaned out the powder measure prior to the test.
