As of July 10th
The Powder Measure Drain-N-Change™ Tool Allows users of Dillon reloading presses to drain gunpowder or change powder bars without removing the powder measure from the toolhead or press.
Operations You can Perform:
• Drain Powder Measure without removing from press or toolhead
• Remove Powder Bar without draining powder
• Change between any two powder bars (all 4 sizes) without draining powder
♦ The Powder Measure Drain-N-Change™ Tool drains 100% of the powder from the powder measure hopper, leaving the powder measure completely empty and ready to be filled with the next gunpowder.
✓ FITS all versions of the Dillon Auto Powder Measure.
✗ DOES NOT FIT the older, manually operated Dillon Powder Measure as it uses a smaller size (narrower) powder bar.
✗ DOES NOT FIT the Belted Magnum Powder Sustem as it uses a taller powder bar.
1 Drain-N-Change™ Tool Services All of your Powder Measures!
Since the Drain-N-Change Tool is only used while draining powder or changing powder bars, and not a permanent installation, you only need one tool to service all of your powder measures.

Q: Why would I ever want to change powder bars with the same powder in the hopper?
A: You may occasionally need to load a powder weight that can be achieved with either the small or large powder bars (in approximately the 6-15 grain range). Which powder bar should you use? Test both powder bars and determine which powder bar gives you the most consistent powder drop weights with that powder. Using the Drain-N-Change™ Tool, you can change powder bars in just a few minutes ... without draining the powder!
Q: Will the Drain-N-Change™ work if I have a Micrometer Powder Bar Kit™ installed on my powder bar?
A: Yes. It will work just fine. The micrometer installation will make no difference in the way the Drain-N-Change™ tool is used.

Great ToolAs with many Uniquetek products you don't know how useful this tool is until you use it. Great way for returning powder back into the jug for storage. Highly recommend.
An Awesome Tool!While I have owned a Powder Measure Drain N Change tool for a couple years, I have never used it. Last night I found myself in a spot where I was needed to load up 1000 rounds for a class this weekend, but was too low on my favorite powder to get there. But I had plenty of my second favorite powder, so it became necessary to change powders. While in the past I have taken the powder measure assembly off my 650, dump it back in the container, go outside and blow the system out with compressed air, then reinstall and carry on. Then I remembered seeing an email a week ago where on video you demonstrated the use of the Drain N Change tool. Stinkin’ awesome man! Saved me a bunch of time, along with the Micrometer adjustment too already in use on my press, I was racking out rounds in short time.
The thing about an efficient press like the 650 is the other necessary stuff to do takes a while. I almost can’t wait to change back to N320 when it comes in!!! Thanks again!
Wow!!! All I can say is WOW!This device is so handy. I always return my unused powder back to it's original container. It's always be a huge pain. With this device, gone are the days of removing the entire toolhead and trying to balance a funnel and the powder measure. It frequently resulted in spilled powder! Now all I have to do is slide the bar in and hold the powder container! This is a fantastic idea and a big time saver. Best of all....no powder spills!
