I used it for a while. I don't like it much. On mine the screw in the end would come loose, so settings were not very repeatable. Instead I bought a bunch of the standard inserts, set them up for specific loads, and labeled them. Now I just use the appropriate insert for whatever I'm loading instead of fiddling with the micrometer insert.

Where did you buy your inserts and do you just order general ones or ?

Thanks,

The powder measure should include one insert for each rotor (rifle and pistol). When I got my LNL, it just came with the rifle rotor and I had to buy the pistol rotor separately.

The ones I bought are the same thing that came standard with the rotor. I forget where I got them, probably Midway.

This is what I got:
