Is this a required additional item if you need to load handgun cartridges?

In other words, will the regular powder dispenser dispense consistent small charges of lets say something like Bullseye/Titegroup etc.

Your LNL AP should have come with both a rifle and handgun rotor & insert. Yes, the handgun insert will drop consistent charges of BE and TG. I use it with these powders for 9mm and 45ACP loads. I've also found that the micrometer insert allows me to quickly get back to a specific charge from one powder to the next. I've replaced my pistol insert with the micrometer.

Thank You John.
Don't have the press yet...
Amazon reviews seem to indicate that the pistol rotor is not included. (Found that odd, but one can never be sure what marketing departments can get away with...)

Mine came with both, the pistol rotor is a must have.

If you are buying a new LNL AP, it will come with both rotors and inserts. Order extra inserts for faster caliber changes. The press is awesome.
