I was looking for a 50 grain fixed powder measure. I took a .308 case and sawed off the bottom. Stuck the neck into a round ball and pounded it in. Holds 50 grains for my Kibler .45 SMR. Just something to try.
Been using those closed-end hollow brass thingies as powder measures for years! Just saw off the length needed for any particular load.
You see, we are doing our sport a favor - if we keep using those things for anything other than their original purpose, pretty soon there will be no more of them, and the original users will have to resort to good, honest muzzle stuffers.
