First Look: RCBS MatchMaster Powder Dispenser

posted on November 7, 2019

RCBS is releasing its fastest and most accurate powder dispenser: the new RCBS MatchMaster. The powder dispenser features precise 0.04 grain consistent measurements along with a new patent-pending, dual-tube-dispensing technology that allows for enhanced speed, saving you precious time on the reloading bench while at the same time providing maximum accuracy.

The one-piece Matchmaster unit has an LCD touchscreen display, which is compatible via Bluetooth with the company's new RCBS app. This compatibility, exclusive to RCBS, provides complete control to the user to calibrate scales and dispense powder in either auto or manual modes. Using the readily accessible, pre-configured powder types, handloaders can create or modify their own customized powder configurations to easily fine tune their favorite loads.

With the use of MatchMaster’s dual-tube-dispensing technology, the dispenser is capable of delivering quick charges, each accurate to within 0.10 and 0.04 grain. This consistency allows handloaders to obtain the most reliable performance possible, providing unprecedented consistency in each individual round.

“The new RCBS Matchmaster has taken powder-dispensing and weighing to the next level,” said Will Hemeyer, senior product line manager for RCBS. “With its user-adjustable powder settings, Bluetooth compatibility, and revolutionary dual-tube-dispense technology, the Matchmaster reduces reloading time and simplifies the entire operation all while maintaining zero impact to charge accuracy.”

The MatchMaster has two powder delivery modes: Standard mode and Match mode. Standard mode drops charges to 0.10 grain accuracy in under 20 seconds while the Match mode drops charges to with 0.04 of a grain. Other standard features on the MatchMaster include a patent-pending bottom drain function with an open drain alert. These two exclusive features makes sure that users will never experience unwanted powder on their bench when filling the dispenser.

The MatchMaster will be available by the end of 2019, and more information is available at
