Lyman Gen6 Compact Powder System is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best one they offer. Just wore out the old 1200 DPS so I bought this, thinking it was their latest & greatest. Didn’t find out until much later that this is just a cheaper version of their full size Gen5. If I knew, I would have spent the $50 more for the better one. The problem I’m having with this Gen 6 “compact” is after the first two loads, the dispenser will drop at the right amount according to the screen, show the load counter then display 1/10th grain less than programed. If I recalibrate it, the first two will be ok then it goes back to the two weights. I emailed Lyman about this and all they’ll say is that it’s accurate to +/- 1/10th. Ok, which weight should I believe the original programed stopping weight or the one it resets to at the end? I can’t even trickle the difference because the cheaper model doesn’t have the manual trickle feature like the better one. May just put it aside for a spare and get something better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve had this for a short time but have put it through set up and Tested it with very satisfying results. I have many friends to reload and several who have different models and makes of units similar to this. Their biggest complaints were for these other manufactures was that there are machines or actually quite slow in metering the powder and also of the loads going over the desired amount set of the load. This new one that I have received seems to work in my opinion very fast with great accuracy so , so far I’m very happy with this unit. Realistically though I need to test it and run it for approximately 6 to 9 months and then give another review as to how it is still operating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from slick setup Recently purchased a Gen6, the price was right. This thing is fast, consistent, and accurate. Cleaning is relatively simple. I've run a couple hundred loads so far and it has ran fine. I did have to replace the seals immediately after receiving the unit, an extra set was included, YAAAA. Customer service at Lyman is great, they're sending another set at no cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Timesaver Had been getting frustrated with inconsistent powder drops til I bought this little marvel. For the handloader that's not in a big rush, as not really for the progressive style presses. On a single stage or turret press, this is a must have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first electronic scale This is the first electronic scale I've ever used and I'm perfectly satisfied with it. It weighs out within a tenth of a grain of the set amount every time as advertised and it feels it out in a reasonable amount of time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works pretty well I read reviews that said this powder dispenser always runs .1 grain short. Yep, it's true. Almost. About 75% of the time, when running 17gr of Trail Boss, it would dump 17gr then stabilize at 16.9. No big deal, it still works just fine.
