1/2 inch powder bushings
« on: August 27, 2010, 09:44:00 pm »
I have the 1/2 bushing system on both of my Star presses,and I have been trying to find an off the press powder measure that uses these bushings.Hornady said they stopped making the powder BARS that utilized the bushings but I don't think they understood my question.Something like the rcbs pistol measure I was hoping for.It would make life a little easier setting up a custom powder charge when reaming a bushing or when verifying how much of what a given bushing will throw.Any ideas.

I finally obtained an early Pacific powder measure that uses the Hornady(Pacific)bushings.

Greetings,

I also use the Pacific Bushings in my Star. Attached is a PDF of the equivalent VMD (Volume Measured Density) that Lee loader use to calculate bushings. I also have it in an Excel spreadsheet if anyone is interested.

Cheers,

Dave
