    Default Powder sticking issues

    Is there some fail safe trick to keep your power from sticking to the scale tray or even in the uniflow? I am using HS-6 and it just sticks to everything.

    Wipe the equipment down with one of those anti cling/softner sheets you toss in the clothes dryer.

    The fabric softner sheets have an oil on them - don't know what - if anything- it will do to powder.

    You can also wash the parts with a liquid dishwashing soap and help the static cling without leaving a possible residue.

    I normally wipe the powder scale pan off with a clean piece of old t-shirt and do the same with the inner surfaces of my Uni-Flo before use. But, if powder does cling to the plastic reservoir, I just gently tap the outside and normally it drops off.

    Bounce dryer sheets for me. Can’t hardly even use a powder measure sometimes down in the dry heat of Arizona in an air conditioned room without them. And they give your loading bench that spring fresh sent too.

    Default reeking of...

    Dang Andy, I though you were a real guy!

    Reloading benches should have smells like Hoppes #9, acetone/ether, beeswax bullet lube etc. - real man smells - not the whimpy wuzzy sickening sweet bounce odor.

    Didn't know you rolled "THAT" way TV, oh well, don't ask-don't tell.

    But I got all them smells too, it’s a poopooree ya know . . . with Tapmagic, JB-Buster/Blaster whatever, WD40, sulfur, snacks I didn’t finish can’t find now and dogs won‘t eat for some reason, and even some frustration mixed in. Keeps the wife out mostly, though she‘s been known to come around and augment my poopooree with Fabreeze.

    But, anyway, them drier sheets do work at stopping the static cling in the hopper very well. Also keep moose off my apple trees, no joke, moose hate the spring fresh sent I guess.

    Yeah...I have to agree...LOL! Ever take a whif of a freshly-fired shotgun shell? Great smell! In contrast, my wife keeps buying these stupid plug-in fragrance things and putting them all over the house. Terrible odor...

    Default stinch & good smells

    The old waxed paper shotgun shells had the best smell IMO. The plastic ones are good but just not the same.

    My wife is hung up on those dang plug-in stench pots also. I can hardly smell the wet dog when she comes in the house.

    Andy's suggestion on the dryer sheets for moose repellent sounds interesting. I've used the rotted blood stuff but it does smell pretty bad. I have to watch the wind and only spray it when the neighbors I don't like are downwind.

    Wish they made Hoppe's 9 in roll on deodorant. I love the smell of it.

    I'll stick with the smell of Scotch.
