Harrell's Powder Measures

I'm trying to decide which Harrells measure to buy for my shooting.  Most friends I've communicated with say the Schuetzen Pistol (4-25 gr) is what they use.  But I want to be able toalso use it to load my 45/70...........and with the powder I like to use, that's a 52 gr. load.    Harrells makes a 6-60 gr measure that would work for anything I load.  But friends tell me if the majority of my loads are in the 4-25 gr range, that the Schuetzen Pistol would be the more accurate, let's say a 16 gr load range.  So my question is to any of you who own the Premium or the BR Premium model.  Does it measure accurately in the lower third of it's capability?

Remember the large capacity Harrell powder measures can be adjusted 0.15 grains per click whereas the Schuetzen Model is 0.03 grains per click (or five times more precision in dropping fine grain powders).

I understood that to be the true of the 120 gr Classic Culver, but I didn't realized if was the same for the Premium or BR Premium.

They list the Premium measures as .1 grain per click but still not as refined as the .03 grains per click of the Schuetzen measure.

The Culver is .15 grains per click.

Be nice if I could get away with one Harrell's but, I  use two, the Schuetzen for small charges and one he does not make anymore less expensive model called the large standard, it's like his Custom 90, for large volume charges.

Having said that for fixed ammo, 4227 powder charges 15 grs more or less  I use the large Harrell's. I don't think the small one is any more "accurate" it does allow smaller increments in charge.

My 38/55 fixed used for 40 shot offhand club matches. 3 x 60 round boxes of cartridges all the same is what's important. 180 bullets with the same point of impact on target. One box per match sighters match and shoot off.

Pure Schuetzen another matter may want to bump the charge up or down just a little bit while shooting & Schuetzen allows going back to the sighter target anytime. Two different rifles & loading methods two measures.

I use a Harrell Schuetzen for my normal small capacity loads and an RCBS uniflow for the larger. Also what powder do you use for the large cases, that could make difference on the measure you would use for them.  jmo

I use my Harrell's Schuetzen for most loading, and my Lyman 55 for anything larger capacity.

There was a very similar topic a few months ago that might be worth looking up. I'd think the Schuetzen is a straight forward thought for smaller charges, there was some thought that the BR can do as good or better. I have the preference to use tools somewhere in  the middle of their adjustment range, but that doesn't mean a thing. I think if someone gets a little familiarity with their favorite, they can count on really good confidence in those measures.

Don't know if I just don't speak "search language" or what, but I've never been able to find anything I'm looking for on this site through a search.  If you happen to have a link, I'd like to read it.

I am now using the Shuetzen measure, but I don't think it is that much better than the Redding pistol measure that I used for years. The Belding and Mull is another one you should consider. It is very good for a broad range of weights.

I'm not the best figuring out how to do things like this, but I have two thoughts. Try here with just 'Harrels', slightly misspelled, and the other is, I'll tend to go with the mega search place. I use advanced search, then set the domain as assra.

It is very likely that most good measures can drop a consistent charge. As mentioned by others, the culver type measures have the potential to take someone to their favorite loads and make accurate fine adjustments, quickly and easily. Best of luck with it.

I have found it is easier to use the evil giant Google to search the ASSRA site. Try using Harrell's and ASSRA as a query.
