Uniquetek Powder Measure Drain-N-Change Tool for Dillon Precision Reloaders
The Powder Measure Drain-N-Change™ Tool Allows users of Dillon reloading presses to drain gunpowder or change powder bars without removing the powder measure from the toolhead or press.
Operations You can Perform:
• Drain Powder Measure without removing from press or toolhead
• Remove Powder Bar without draining powder
• Change between any two powder bars (all 4 sizes) without draining powder
♦ The Powder Measure Drain-N-Change™ Tool drains 100% of the powder from the powder measure hopper, leaving the powder measure completely empty and ready to be filled with the next gunpowder.
✓ FITS all versions of the Dillon Auto Powder Measure.
✗ DOES NOT FIT the older, manually operated Dillon Powder Measure as it uses a smaller size (narrower) powder bar.
✗ DOES NOT FIT the Belted Magnum Powder Sustem as it uses a taller powder bar.
1 Drain-N-Change™ Tool Services ALL of your Powder Measures!
Since the Drain-N-Change Tool is only used while draining powder or changing powder bars, and not a permanent installation, you only need one tool to service all of your powder measures.

Q: Why would I ever want to change powder bars with the same powder in the hopper?
A: You may occasionally need to load a powder weight that can be achieved with either the small or large powder bars (in approximately the 6-15 grain range). Which powder bar should you use? Test both powder bars and determine which powder bar gives you the most consistent powder drop weights with that powder. Using the Drain-N-Change™ Tool, you can change powder bars in just a few minutes ... without draining the powder!
Q: Will the Drain-N-Change™ work if I have a Micrometer Powder Bar Kit™ installed on my powder bar?
A: Yes. It will work just fine. The micrometer installation will make no difference in the way the Drain-N-Change™ tool is used.
