More Auto Drum Powder Measure Tinkering (How Low Can You Go?)

In a previous post I was determining what was causing my Lee Auto Drum Powder Measure to bind when throwing small charges. I found that the cup on the end of the adjusting barrel was protruding from the drum and catching on the wiper. I made an effective, but not elegant ‘repair’ that took care of the bind. In the interest of developing some reduced power loads for my wife’s .380s I engaged in further tinkering to see how low I could get the powder throw.

I still don’t consider what I came up with to be elegant, but it allows me to further reduce my powder throws to the point I could use the Auto Drum to charge a .25 ACP if I wished.
