I remember reading about some code you punch in to make it even faster. Is there such a thing for real?

Someone did a rather extensive article on settings that can be tweeked to make it run faster. Most of it comes from not having it slow down until it gets closer to the charge weight. You can probably come up with it on a google search. Foreign fellow worked it out I believe.
Either way this thing is the cat's meow, hands down worth every penny and that's saying something.

I bought my RCBS Chargemaster 1500 combo about three years ago and my Redding BR30 sometime last year (thinking it would speed things up). Hate to say it, but I think I wasted my money on the BR30. It drops accurate loads of ball powder, but it can't hang with the Chargemaster on Varget and other extruded powders, not even a race, and its not as accurate.
Now I only drop TAC, AA2230 and 748 in my BR30 -- and sometimes H322 (short extruded) for loading my .223s. But the Vargets and Vhita Vouris go straight to the Chargemaster.
And, like one poster mentioned, learn to seat your bullet while the Chargemaster drops and weighs and you'll find yourself trailing and it having to wait on you.
Can't wait to see how they're going to improve on this unit, and see who else gets in the race to beat it. It'll take a heckuva a machine to beat it.
Don't waste your time, buy the combo unit and enjoy accurate reloading. (Can you tell I like it?)
Oh, yeah, and I caught it on sale at Midsouth Shooters for $249. I should have bought two of them.

Re: Programming Chargemaster Variables
It's pretty easy to tune... makes a big difference. I'm throwing 45.0 grs of Varget in less than 15 seconds (closer to 12, really). I do get an occasional overthrow, but at that rate, no big deal... I've become pretty good at knocking 3 kernels out of the pan. Other times, I'll just dump the whole thing and let it throw another.

I waited a while before buying the chargemaster as they cost an arm and a leg here in Europe (+/- $ 600.-) , but I finally went ahead and ordered one. Looking forwards to it.
