Raise the handle partway then screw the adjustment screw down just until you feel the powder. Throw a few charges and check them and make any adjustments until you get the charge weight you want. Good luck and have fun rolling your own.
    I add a step as well. I check the weights two ways when setting up the powder. I check each weight individually. I then throw it 10 times and checks the weight. If I am using 4.6 grains, then 10 should be 46 grains. I just like to do this to check for consistency. Just me, and my extreme obsessive compulsive disorder when it comes to my press.

    I am using the Dillion 550B - spent more than I should but I haven't been sorry. It is accurate, fast and their customer service is the best I have ever seen. However, I am sure you will be happy with your choice!

    I use a Lee 4 station turret press have thousands of rounds thru it Lee carbide dies in .38/.357, 409 s&w and 45 acp. I use the Leeauto disc powder measure with the Microneter adjustable charge bar, consistant charge weights. Taper crimp autos & roll crimp revolver rounds. I would also suggest a set of check weights for your scale.
    You can go to the Lee wweb site it has videos to help set up your press and dies.
    Have fun
