I like this one. It's a combination of an automatic powder throw and trickler. When you match it up to a milligram capable scale, you can pretty much get to a single grain level of accuracy.

My gen II Prometheus is +/- one kernel of powder. It uses a modified RCBS thrower.

Also have the AutoTrickler, A&D FX120i combo. In conjunction with my Harrell’s powder thrower, it does a good job too.

Don’t have the autothrow, I see a lot of folks mentioning powder bouncing
out of the cup(s) & having to come up with various “work arounds” for it.
Still, more accurate than many alternatives.

Harrell's for a powder thrower most can afford.
Prometheus II if you have several thousand$$$$$

The most accurate is probably the Prometheus, But at $5K it damn well better be.

So I have a auto throw auto trickler on a A&D fx120i scale. It can consistency drop charges to within .05 of a grain. On ball powder it does better.

I’ll give you a tip though unless you are using brass from the same lot. Annealing every shot, have the exact same neck tension, exactly the same seating depth, Processing your brass exactly the same way each and every time. Being a little off on you powder charge is not as bad as you would think. Bullet jump and neck tension are far grater contributors to low SD’s

I have an old redding vintage 1960 that is very consistant, but I have found the one on my Star Universal to be just as good.
