Anyone know if the Hornady Powder Measure will work on the Lee Turret Press? I've owned a Lee Turret Press for 23 years, loaded many thousands of rounds. I'm putting off buying a progressive for a year or two, but in the interim I would like a Lee Classic Turret Press. I've had issues from time to time with the Auto Disk Powder Measure not returning all the way back on the upstroke and causing squib loads. I think if I could fit the Hornady Measure on the four station turret I could crank out a couple a hundred rounds at a sitting with more accurate powder charges. Anyone out there ever tried this?

From what i have read, yes it will work, but you have to operate the press slower if using it in auto index cause it's heavy, and makes it skip index when trying to go too fast.

Not to change the subject, but have you run some graphite powder through the Autodisk to see if that affects the sticking? Some of the newer powders don't use graphite, and if you are using one, that could have an impact on the measure operation.

The JDS Quick Measure has an adapter for Dillon presses. On a moving dire turret station, though, I don't think there's an adapter for it. Also, you might need to add powder baffles to a measure that's not designed to be moving around. It depends on how the motion tends to pack powder in the hopper. You don't want your charge weights growing as the number of rounds since your last hopper fill up increases.
