Closer Look – Intellidropper Powder MeasureThe Firearm Blog

Welcome everyone to the TFB Armorer’s Bench! As mentioned in the little blurb, this series will focus on a lot of home armorer and gunsmith activities. In this article sponsored by WheelerTiptonCaldwell, and Frankford Arsenal, I decided to take a closer look at Frankford Arsenal’s Intellidropper Electronic Powder Measure. Lately, I have been basically taking you, folks, with me as I go through a slowed reloading process highlighting some of the tools being used. Next up is this Intelidropper Electronic Powder Measure and I am very excited to use it. Before the actual “using” part happens let’s dive into this closer look at Frankford Arsenal’s Intelidropper Electronic Powder Measure!

TFB Armorer’s Bench: Intelidropper Electronic Powder Measure

Welcome to our recurring series of Armorer’s Bench which is made possible and brought to you by WheelerTiptonCaldwell, and Frankford Arsenal who are our sponsors. Here, we at TFB hope to inform, entertain, and even inspire any would-be gunsmith or armorer out there. Ideally, with the information I provide and with the help of our sponsors, you can have some useful knowledge pertaining to the conservation and improvement of firearms technology while at the same time sharing experiences and teaching each other new tips and tricks along the way in the comments. Digging deep into what it is to be an armorer or gunsmith has significance but what is important is what those people do to show they’ve earned that title. I am happy to share my experiences and knowledge and hope it is informative!

Make your personal safety a priority:

  1. Practice proper gun safety. Always make sure before the firearm hits your bench that it is unloaded and safe to be handled.
  2. Wear the proper safety equipment. The main one would be safety glasses (decent ones) since parts are often under spring tension and you may work with high RPM tools. Other honorable mentions would be latex gloves or a respirator when working with potentially harmful solvents and oils. Also hearing protection when working with loud machinery or test-firing firearms.
  3. Modifications, alterations, and customizations will void your firearm’s warranty 9.5 times out of 10. Please take that into consideration before attempting any at-home gunsmithing.
  4. If you are unsure about proper safety practices, disassembly procedures, or warranty standards, stop, put down the tools, and consult a competent gunsmith.

Brief Overview: Intelidropper Electronic Powder Measure

Just a few years back Frankford Arsenal launched the newest addition to their electronic scale line in the form of the Intellidropper Electronic Powder Measure. The Intellidropper Electronic Powder Measure is a powder dispenser, measuring tool, and scale all built into one tool. Even more impressive, the Intellidropper Electronic Powder Measure is automatic in its function. Ultra-specific grain weights can be typed in and the Intellidropper will do all the work for you.

The Intellidropper Electronic Powder Measure takes everything a step further by being Bluetooth compatible for a more hands-off-the-scale approach. Using Frankford Arsenal’s app you can plug in specific powder charges on your phone and even save reloading recipes for future use. The app is available on most app stores and is completely free.

Every piece is separately packaged and well protected by foam, plastic wrap, and bubble wrap. The two 50g calibration weights come packaged individually and with small certificates. The Intellidropper features a removable hopper, drain cap, scale platform, and hopper cap.

Closing Thoughts: Intelidropper Electronic Powder Measure

The Frankford Arsenal Electronic Powder Measure is a cool setup and seems really handy. When I use this to reload some .30 Carbine and .45-70 Government, I will have one of Frankford Arsenal’s other scales on standby just to double-check the dropped measurements but considering the degree of accuracy these automatic dispensers have once set up well, I am not too worried. Until then make sure you folks stay safe out there and hopefully soon I’ll give you a deeper dive into my experience using the Frankford Arsenal Electronic Powder Measure!
