PM out for a pair
PM me info on inserts.
PM me for one.
Good evening, I would like to purchase 1 brass sleeve and aluminum insert. My measurement is .308. Pm me how much and as to where and how to pay, I prefer PayPal if you will accept (I will send gift / friends if you accept it).

Thank you Dave! I cant believe I was suffering without one for so long! Spot on every time!
bumping this back up
Ordered one on Friday 7:30pm eastern time, had the insert on Monday morning! Smart idea that solves a problem.
back up. thanks
I just ordered a Chargemaster and do not have it in hand yet. However for the sake of my curiosity what is the difference between the brass and aluminum insert?
Also send me payment information to cruisor at msn.com
I don't make the main insert out of aluminum anymore because everyone wanted brass. However, the additional small sleeve that goes inside the main insert is aluminum.
I bought one of these for my new Hornady L&L and it works great. Without it, it constantly throws over charges. With it , it is pretty dead on.
I was using H4350 and CFE223 for the test.
It slows things down a bit but accuracy is my main concern.
I use my Chargemaster to get close to the desired load when I'm making competition ammo, then I weigh the resultant charge on my Gem Pro 250 and adjust the final weight to the nearest .02gr. One kernel of Varget is very close to .02gr.
I prefer to have a dozen or two kernels scattered on a piece of paper. It makes it easy to add one or two to the pan if the charge is .02 or .04 gr short of ideal. If it's that close, I don't even re weigh the charge; I just dump it into the case. Outside .04gr, I correct and re weigh.
With my McDonald's straw, it was hard to be within .04gr half the time. With my new brass insert, the charges are much more consistent and therefor easier to fine tune. Here is a graph showing 17 test throws with the Chargemaster set to 25.0gr Varget. Most throws are a tiny bit under and that's the way I like it since adding a kernel or two from the piece of paper on my bench is much easier than trying to pick one or two kernels out of the pan to reduce an overthrow.
The results aren't perfect, but it's an improvement on the straw, that's for sure. I hope that further fine tuning of the metering parameters will make things even better. The insert is well worth the money.
Tag for later
