Determine the proper disk opening for the starting load for the caliber / powder / bullet type and weight. Remove the hopper. Place the hole marked with the proper disk size nearest the hole in the base of the powder measure. You will see a slot in the bottom of the disk. It goes over the tab sticking out of the base of the measure. Try to slide it each way to ensure that it is properly seated in place. Replace the bin by placing the bolts down through the holes in the base and replacing and tightening the knurled nuts. Fill the bin with powder, remembering to place the lid back on the bin. Turn the bin to the “On” position. Place a case or other container under the die at station 3 and work the lever a few times, catching the powder and dumping it back into the hopper. If you are using a case you will probably have to dump it after every charge.

Place the end piece on the end of the chain. Slide the spring down the chain. There is a small tab on the left side of the carrier with a small hole in it. Push the chain up through that hole. Raise the handle completely to lower the carrier completely. The arm for the powder measure should be directly above this hole. Pull the arm down and push the chain through the hole on the outer end of this arm. Pull the chain tight. Raise the carrier slightly and pull the chain thought the hole until it clicks – it's like pulling one more ball through the hole, but that isn't necessarily what happens. Just feel for the click. Once that happens lower the carrier again to hold the chain tight. Push the chain through the other hole in the powder measure arm and pull it tight. This is a very easy adjustment to make, but very important. If it is adjusted too tightly the chain may break. If it is adjusted too loosely the powder measure won't reset properly. VIDEO
