    I loaded my first XXk rounds on a Pro1000 with the auto disk. There was a lot of jank in that press but the powder approach was better than Dillonís. Way more repeatable which was a big deal as I changed calibers a lot.

    Any thoughts on the Auto Drum vs the Auto Disk Pro with the micrometer adjustable charge bar? The Auto Disk Pro seems to be available right now where the Auto Drum is out of stock. I'm inclined to wait for the Auto Drum to be back in stock since it's the most recommended, it's less expensive at regular pricing and I'm not in a real hurry, but I'm sort of intrigued by the Auto Disk Pro and that adjustable charge bar because it seems more adjustable plus, if I'm being honest, cool-in-concept gadget. Thanks.

    I've not had good results with the adjustable charge bar. With pistol loads, it seems like it doesn't work very well.
    Maybe with larger rifle loads, it would work. There are a few folks doing some mods, but I haven't messed with it.

    It works okay with .357 Magnum and .44 Magnum. When I tried to use it with .38 Spl and .45 ACP, it bridged with terrifying regularity.

    Iíve used both powder dispensers and strongly prefer the Auto Drum. The Auto Disk leaked powder frequently when disc or ball powder was used. The process of moving the disc from the hopper to the die (where it drops into the case) happens during the flaring process, which is how the Drum works as well. But I found that occasionally if I had backed off the flaring enough, the disc wouldnít fully seat over the die, resulting in a small shelf on which powder would remain. This led to inconsistent charges.

    I never had a single issue with the Drum. It was easy to tune, consistent and leak free. Just my experiences...

    Thanks. I appreciate it. The auto drum seems to be the best combination of function and value out there right now for a case activated powder measure.
