Got this off another board for a decent price.  Only posting it to make bigdaddy jealousBucky
Anyone else using one that wants to share any useful info would be great!  Hopefully I can really turn out some more consitant loads now vs the lee perfect powder measure and autodisk setup!

 SVT set your balance scale close by and use it. Check your initail drops and then every 5th or 6th for real good accurate weights. You will be surprised how fast the load can change +/-  a tenth of a grain or more and if you are at max it will make a difference.

I haven't used it yet, out of powder.  Goign to get some Saturday and test it out.  Not sure if it will stay or not.  Its gonna have to be really good.  The only thing i really wanted it for was for the 300 win mag.  The autodisk is used for everything else. Its good to +or- .03grs I've found out.

I have a Pact dispenser and I love it, I'm sure you'll enjoy the Lyman all the same.

Turns out I had some H1000 after all that I didn't know about.  I just loaded 50 300 win mags with the Lyman.  I can't say its that fast.  The brass was preped, primed, ready to charge and seat the bullet.  I was expecting it to be faster but it may be that I haven't figured out the fastest way to use it.  Time will tell.  Definatly accurate.  All weighed in with .01 of each other.

I have a similar RCBS and have had issues with the buttons mine is a bit tricky to use but if it throws a tenth too much i take a pinch out and wiggle my fingers till just the rigth amount drops back in the pan to get my exact measurement.

I would suggest wiping down the plastic reservior tube with a used dryer sheet to help reduce static.  I got the Lyman too and it definitely speeds things up from the drop and trickle method!  In the repeat mode I find I have just enough time to comfortably seat and press the bullet while it is dispensing the next load.  Press needs to be on a different table so as not to shake the lyman.

I have figured out the auto repeat function bud and it is super fast that way.  A lot easier doing my real accurate loads with it.   Rounds for my AR i am still gonna use the auto disk on the lee.  Its accurate to within + or - .05 and thats close enough being I am no where near max. and they seem to shoot just as accurate

I've been using the ealier version for 3 yrs. now & I'm very happy.DO NOT use the scale any where there is an open window or a fan on within 10'.Do allow the 15 mins. warm up,it really does make a difference'
Custom service is excellent.......Good luck with it!

I always wait for the complete beep after dispenseing cause the display seems to lock on your set weight till after the beep.  The the display updates and can be .2gr over your setting without alarming.   If its over by 0.4gr or more it asks for a calibration.  I see this when dispensing Varget because of the larger kernal size.  i either dump and whole pan back into the hopper or spoon out a few kernals

I would pinch some out and put it back in the hopper and use the trickle feature to get dead on
