Average dispensing time is less than 30 seconds for a 60-grain extruded powder charge. It carries a one-year limited warranty. Note: Do NOT use with black powder.

  • Combines the ChargeMaster 1500 Scale and ChargeMaster Dispenser

  • Stores up to 30 loads in memory for fast, easy recall

RCBS Chargemaster Dispenser and Scale - 110 Volt is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 128.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great while it works but no customer service I bought the Chargemaster combo a couple of years ago and it was great while it worked. It failed in the first year and RCBS replace it, then it failed in the third year and nothing. I called RCBS and was told they are made in China and we do not service or stand behind our product after the first year. I was also told to buy the replacement part. If I am going to dump around $300 for a scale combo I would like it to last more than a couple of years and would also like the option to have it repaired if it ever failed. I will not buy another RCBS product again. I would rate it at zero stars but that is not an option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, accurate tool! I reload for several rifle and pistol cartridges. Set up I found was easy. I especially like the recall feature to pull up the cartridge I want to load for and have all the data for that load right there. I have done the straw tweek and I do believe it helps with not getting an overcharge. I have not done a reprogram to speed it up as of yet and I may not at all. I find the default speed is at about my pace. Have dropped charges for 7mm mag,270 win.,243 win.,223 rem.,357 sig,40 s&w,45 acp, and 380 auto using several different powders with little trouble. Would not go back to dispenser and balance scale. The only drawback I find is getting all the powder out of the machine after you are done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Auto despencing, and charge memory storage. I have had a chance to work with this machine for a month now. I shoot precision rifle and always use extruded powder. I have found it to be loosely accurate. Example: I program in 68 gn of H1000. It dependence's. Sometimes it comes to 68.1or 68.3, or 68.0. I then transfer it to a Gempro 250. and my weight reads 68.16 or 59.38 etc. so I correct it to EXACTLY 68gns on the Gempro and charge my case. All it really does (for me) is save me from reaching with my case to a manual powder dumper. I was hoping for better...That being said, I would recommend it to anyone who uses strickly ball powder or is not a precision shooter. Rant over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RCBS vrs Hornady Bought this to speed up load process when loading a lot of 223 ammo. Running two dispensers means I don't have to wait for them to dispense. I already owned a Hornady dispenser. I ran both of them and at the same time. Although both did miss the target weight, RCBS missed less often. The RCBS was also about 30% faster. I loaded 400 rounds of 26 gr of VARGET that night. The RCBS is complected enough that I did have to read the directions to calibrate it and make it dispense. A quick reading of only the parts of the directions needed to calibrate and dispense took care of the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever ! I was reloading with my old dispenser when my dog came running through the room and tripped over the cord and broke my scale. I was a little upset, but got over it. I ordered the Chargemaster to replace it. Wow ! what a difference. I have loaded several different types of powder and never have had a problem. Very accurate and fast. I use it to reload hand guns and rifles. I thought the hand gun charges would be a problem, but it works perfect. It is very easy to use and it is fast. Now I thank my dog.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from dispencing made easy I purchased the Chargermaster, first one showed. The keypad lower row did not work. Emailed Natchezss, they said to ship it back using the form with the package. I was like well now it will cost more because of the shipping charges for sending it back. waited for a email confirmation that it was received. Waited and waited. 5 days later package showed up with my new chargemaster. shipping the defective unit was reimbursed to my CC. I am happy with the product and VERY happy with Natchezss!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RCBS Chargemaster 1500 - Great product! I purchased my RCBS Chargemaster 1500 several years ago from Natchez and have been very happy with it ever since. I was able to take advantage of a $50.00 RCBS rebate and free S/H which made it much more economical to purchase. I use my Chargemaster for .45 ACP, 45 Colt, 38 Special. .357 Magnum, .223 Remington and .308 Winchester. Occassionaly I will get an overcharge of .1 grain depending on what powder I am using. I replaced the original RCBS aluminum powder pan with the RCBS black plastic funnel powder pan. No more bouncing around of the fine spherical powders. Makes filling each case much easier / cleaner to perform too. I randomly check my charge weights with a RCBS 5-0-5 beam scale and they are always true. My Chargemaster 1500 has made my reloading sessions more productive and consistently more accurate. Allows more time for case prep and careful bullet seating. I highly recommend this product for anyone who is serious about achieving accurate, consistent reloads. The instructions do warn about not letting the unit freeze (storage / transporting) because it can ruin the load cell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How Much is Your Time Worth? I was beam scale and powder trickler guy, but I thought I would give the Chargemaster a try. Yes, it's pricey...no question about that. However, the simplicity of use and ease of setup make this purchase worthwhile. Out of the box this unit was easy to have throwing charges on the bench in a matter of minutes. I use several powders and all meter well including Varget. After my initial calibration I cross-checked each throw against my 505 beam scale. All were dead-on, so I quit checking after 50 rounds. I still randomly cross-check for peace of mind, but I have yet to find an innacurate dump. The only downside is the fact that the dispensing tube could be overhauled. On occasion the system will thrown an overcharge by 0.1, mostly using Varget. The rifled tube will cause Varget granules to dump more than what is needed to meet the specified charge. This would happen about five times in 50 throws. Google the "McDonald straw trick" and you'll have a very reliable system for an extremely inexpensive fix. There are several guys out there making machined inserts for this specific purpose, and I now have one of those that fit the unit perfectly. A trip over to Sniper's Hide will get you fixed up. My powder over-throw problems are now a thing of the past. This is my ONLY complaint. My suggestion: RCBS...develop an in-house fix. Over all this thing is a real time-saver. By the time I seat a bullet my next charge is ready for a dump into the case. I was fairly proficient with a powder dump and trickler, but I would say the Chargemaster makes a tedious task enjoyable. Furthermore, proficiency jumps close to 100% when you develop a routine. It's just a question of how much your time is worth? Buy the RCBS Chargemaster and you'll pack the beam scale in the attic.
