I also use dryer sheets to try to remove the static from my Dillon powder measures.
I live in Arizona. Humidity was 65% on the day this happened, but I was reloading in an air conditioned room so it was probably a bit lower. I am checking results with a different, older powder hopper that has never had this problem. I will report on this later today.
