I've used a Uniflow for over 45 years with stick, ball, and flake powders. In fact, other than my Star measure which came mounted on the tool, the Uniflow is the only powder measure I have. What everyone says about the Uniflow and stick powder is true. My way around it is to throw a slightly lighter charge onto an electronic scale, then finish off the charge with a powder trickler. If I were to buy another measure, I'd like to try one of the electronic ones e.g. RCBS, Lyman, or Pact but that Uniflow just keeps on working. Just my dos centavos, YMMV.
