Lyman 55 Classic

By
Age: 46-55
I've been wanting one of these for about a decade and finally got around to ordering it. I was not disappointed. I made a stand for it for my reloading bench, which really helps when using it. I've loaded some .45 Colt and .44 Russian loads using it, and it worked perfectly. If you want to load Black Powder Cartridges, this is a must have!

A good powder thrower

I had one of these in Australia and decided I needed another one over here. As good as any powder thrower I used as well as having the aluminium hopper for black powder.

Powder measure

By
Location: Los Lunas, NM
Works well with black powder. I got a consistent measure each time. While using black powder substitute, I had a problem with powder not dropping down the drop tube. I had to disassemble the unit too clear the jam. The catalog info indicates that it will mount on most stands with the #14 thread. I had purchased an RCBS powder stand for the unit but the adapter that comes with the 55 is too short to mount it on the stand, and the provided #14 nut did not thread onto the 55 adapter.

Lyman No. 55 Black Powder Powder Measure

By
Location: Fort Lauderdale, FL
This piece of equipment is one of the most precise and accurate measures I've yet to use! The Lyman No. 55 Black Powder Powder Measure gives me consistent, accurate, over-and-over measurement which is absolutely necessary in the black powder business. Lyman is 'THE' meause you want! The cost is relative to the accuracy and quality.

Black Powder Handgun Cartridge Reloading

By
Location: Colorado Springs, CO
The Lyman No.55, with drop tube, is the only high quality, accurate powder measure safe for black powder that I know of. It throws a wide range of charges with consistent accuracy. With this measure I am able to load reliable, accurate handgun ammunition in half the time. Don't load black powder cartridges without it.
