Hi Everyone, I'm new to this forum. I have been lurking for a day or so and have got a lot of good info. I was curious if anyone has used the Chargemaster with IMR 4895 powder. I load a lot of 4895 and would like to buy the chargemaster if it does a good job with that powder.
A couple of years ago I bought a similar product made by another company and it did not do a good job with 4895 and it was really bad with IMR 5010. It finally croaked when I kept feeding it the 5010. The Chargemaster would be a lot of help if it will work with 4895.

Thanks in advance

Eugene, I just completed loading 150 223 Rem cartridges with 24.5 grains of H4895. The ChargeMaster threw charges at or within +.2 grains on every charge with probably 95% being exactly at 24.5 grains. The remainder were only about 5 granules of powder off the desired load and just a very small pinch removed the overage from the pan and adjusted the weight to the desired amount.

So I would say that it works great with IMR 4895 also.

I've loaded 4895 from my chargemaster as well, didn't notice any issues with it. Also loaded imr 4064, varget, imr 4320, and imr 4756 (flake). No issues with any of it.
Every once in a while some of the powder does clump at the end of the drop tube, sometimes a bunch will fall at once and cause an overcharge of .1 to .2 grains as previously mentioned. Just a quick pinch takes care of this problem.
I love mine, works fantastico! wouldn't hesitate to buy it again, although I would spend more time looking for a sale. Saw it in a Midway flyer two days ago for $299

Hi everybody. I´m new to this very insightful forum. I have been lurking here for a while and finally decided to register.
I have a question mainly for european shooters regarding the Chargemaster Combo. What´s the differnce between the 110V and the 220V models?. Is it just the power supply adaptor?. If that´s the case, then you can purchase the 110V model and use a transformer in Europe, right?.
The reason for this is that I´ve found a good price on the 110V model and none on the 220V.
Thanks a lot for your time and take care.

Yeah you can buy the 110V version and use it in any country. It requires a 1A, 9V DC unregulated power supply you can buy in whatever country you live in. I bought a 2A, 12V regulated plug pack power supply (switchmode)in order to gain a little extra line filtering.

Just a little tech note here for those that dont know: A 9V unregulated power pack outputs around 12V DC (lightly loaded) and a 12V DC regulated supply puts out a steady 12V DC under rated load.

This has been discussed on this thread: http://ozfclass.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=2090

It requires the same size and polarity DC output plug that comes with the USA power supply. You wont have any problems finding a power pack in any country you live in for the Chargemaster.
