    Lee autodisk

    I have a Lee 1000 progressive, and with the autodisk I can get 5.6 grns of powder or 6.9 grns. My powder says 6.8 max, start 10% lower. My 5.6 is way below the 10% lower. My glock 19 has been cycling fine, but I am thinking that a little more powder would give me closer to factory loads and more realistic training.

    Any ideas?

    You need to order the double disk setup below from Midway,that way you can stack 2 disks and get closer to the amount of grains you are looking for

    I use their adjustable charge bar on mine. Takes a little longer to set it up but it lets me dial in precisely what I want.

    I have a Lee balance scale, but since I started wearing reading glasses I have a hell of a time using it. I figure for $20 I would give it a try, it also has some descent reviews.

    Ditto on the disk stacking & inexpensive e-scales. Be sure to frequently verify the e-scale weights with your balance beam. I've been through a couple of e-scales and ended up saving my pennies and buying a Dillon and have been very happy with that decision. I do agree though that the Lee beam can be a bear to use, especially for those of us with older eyes.

    Disks came and I'll probably do some loading this weekend. Does it matter when stacking the disks if the bigger (opening) disk is on top or bottom?

    I would recommend getting a larger balance scale than the lee(RCBS, Hornady, Redding etc). Nothing wrong with the Lee and am not bashing it, I had one as well, and it was as accurate as any, but way too small and hard to read and operate.

    Even if you decide to get a quality electronic, you will always need to have a good balance beam scale as a back-up. For me, I have an RCBS balance beam and a set of check weights and don't see the need for anything else.

    Get two holes that are as close as possible to the same, and larger on the bottom.

    I am using electrical scale since 2009 and never ever faced any problem while using my electrical scale. My digital scale always shows accurate results of measurements. I don't know if someone facing any issue in weighing.
