FRANKFORD PLATINUM POWDER INTELLI-DROPPER

5 Stars because it absolutely meets my needs and has increased my reloading pleasure. It's not perfect but I'd buy it again without question.
What I have done with it ths far is work up 9MM, Sport Pistol and 50AE, H110 loads.
Turn it on and allow it to sit for 15 minutes and then calibrate it. Replace the pan and fill the powder hopper, typically 3/4 full. Run the powder calibrate cycle twice. The first time it can dump 300+ grains, the second time will be less and you'll get very consistent loads. You need to do this when you change powder as it really does learn based on the powder how to stop on the mark. When it comes to emptying the power out, simply move the unit to the edge of the table, place the container under the spout and turn the cap. Use the little brush to knock the rest of the loose powder to the bottom. Tip the unit forward to get the rest out of the trickler tube. If you tip the unit too much it may not want to power up without puling the plug and plugging it back in. My other Electronic scales sometimes fluctuate by .1, this scale is no different and hitting zero tends to settle it down. If you have doubts, calibrate it again.
For 9MM I use a Lee Turret press in single stage mode. I set the scale to 3.2gn and hit the button. Within a few seconds it beeps and shows STABLE indicating it's done and right on 3.2gn. I would dump the powder into the case and seat the bullet and by that time the next charge had been dispensed and I repeated this cycle until to was time to up the powder charge, 3.3 - 4.0. Worked like a champ saving me from dumping the little dippers and trickling the last few grains over and over again. No over or under changes in about 100 rounds.
For 50AE I use a RCBS single stage press, prep the cases. H110 is a fine powder and can be messy. Starting at 30gn, it take a little longer and is more fun to watch as it dumps quickly at first and stops. It then dumps a little and stop and that last .1gn it bumps ever so little and stops - beeps and reads STABLE. I loaded four boxes, one each at 30,31,32 and 34gn. Out of 200 rounds I pulled the pan too early once, it will let you know that was a problem, dump the powder back in the hopper and let lt start over. My bad but good to know. I did have the .1 drift at maybe the 100 round mark resulting in a .1 overage. I dumped the power in the hopper hit Zero and let it start over. I had no other issues what so ever.
The App on IOS works. I'm not sure what I was expecting, maybe an interactive reloading manual and that it's not. What it does do is allow you to store your load data and allows you to send those loads to the scale rather than push the buttons on the scale. It connect via Bluetooth and disconnects if you switch between apps but it quickly re-syncs when you return. IT does have a large selection of bullets and powder options to pick from when building your loads saving you data entry time.
It has improved my reloading pleasure and has earned a permanent place on my bench.
