550 powder measure maintenance/cleaning

Recommended Posts

I don't think it needs cleaned regularly. As a rule I don't touch my press unless it starts to act up. Then I'll tear some things apart and do a good cleaning.

Do you have a good digital scale? They make checking charges very easy to do. Just throw ten charges and watch the weight grow. You can average the ten but by watching each charge added individually can let you know if there is truly the occasional light or heavy load.

Do you have a chrono? You might try running some through the chrono until you feel what you suspect is a light load.

Honestly, I think your charges are fine. Feeling a light load or a heavy load is often an illusion. To feel a significant difference in recoil like you mentioned , there would need to be a pretty major drop in powder.
