Putting a Manual Powder Measure on a Lee Powder Through Expanding Die

I stumbled upon a product a while back that allows you to put a standard powder measure with 7/8″-14 threads on top of the Lee Powder Through Expanding Die. I decided to hold off on buying the adapter because the Lee Auto Drum was working well enough with flake powders such as Alliant Bullseye. Well, when I used fine ball powders in the Auto Drum, it was a disaster. The Gun-Guides Perfect Adapter can be found on Amazon for $14 here:

With a Auto Breech Lock Pro, and the Auto Drum powder measure, how can I effect the case flare/mouth bell, and then the powder drop as two separate strokes? Will two powder through dies work? One to flare the case mouth, and the next one to drop the powder? How can I prevent the powder drop stroke from further expanding the case mouth?

Kurtis, I often use the LEE Perfect Powder Measure (the plastic one) on my presses using the discontinued LEE Universal Powder Charging Die. Sometimes I use the linkage to actuate the measure, other times I throw it manually.

That’s a workable solution there Kent…it’s no big deal to reach up and deliver the powder. Gives your left hand something to do other than picking your nose…hehehehe!
What we are after is accurate deliveries, however we have to do it.
Dang, I like that bench top!!!
