The Importance of Gun SafetyA Holiday Season Reminder:
The Importance of Gun Safety

During times when we are together with loved ones and family, if the opportunity presents itself, please share the cardinal rules of gun safety:

  1. Always handle a firearm as if it is loaded. Whenever you pick up a firearm, understand its function and check for yourself to see if it is loaded. Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
  2. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
  3. Know your target and know what is beyond your target, whether you are at the range or in the woods.

Safety First


Bench Rest® Powder Measure UpdateBench Rest® Powder Measure Update

Bench Rest Powder Measure
(part no. 010631)

  • Throws fast and accurate charges
  • Forster machined from U.S.-made iron castings
  • Accurate to 1/10th of a grain while dispensing most rifle powders
  • Large powder hopper/reservoir
  • Powder-coated finish in Forster Crimson Red

We have a great deal of anecdotal evidence testifying to the fact our Powder Measure is ACCURATE, FAST, and a PLEASURE TO USE.

Vernon Smith is an engineer who has been reloading since 1974. He calls it a robust, repeatable measure that is invaluable to his loading process.

Julian Dickerson is another long-time reloader who was distraught when we stopped producing the Measure to respond to the demand for more Co-Ax® Presses. He is elated that the Powder Measure will be available again.

The long, narrow powder reservoir minimizes the surface area of powder being sheared. This minimizes charge variability and speeds the charging process. Look in the next issue of Focus for more scientific evidence documenting the speed, repeatability, and accuracy of this unique powder dispenser.

We have planned to re-introduce the Powder Measure since 2015, as soon as more production capacity opened up in our CNC machining centers. Unfortunately for customers eager to have one, demand has stayed high for all of our tools.

Forster is making a commitment now to have a large quantity of Bench Rest Powder Measures ready to ship by April 2020.
