Turn it to the side and dump the powder in the original container. Then cycle a couple cases through it to get the remainder out.

loosen the two hex bolts on the clamp and lift it off. You have to just about remove them.

But take the linkage off first.

It becomes normal and easier the more you do it.

use a funnel when you pour the powder back into the jug or can. I also manually activate the powder bar a couple times, there's always some powder in the charge bar that regular dumping doesn't seem to get

I just remove the whole tool head to pour the powder back into the canister and hand cycle the measure a few times. Quick, easy and it's just removing the two tool head locating pins.

Yup, I do the same. Remove whole tool head and dump form the top of the hopper. Then I place the bottom end over the powder bottle and cycle the charge bar a few times by hand.

That's what I do, I have a powder hopper for each tool head and I just pop off the fail safe linkage and pull the 2 pins and dump and then cycle it a couple times.

Just take out the two pins, disconnect the linkage on the left side, put a funnel in your powder container, remove the tool head and pour it out, put it back in with a case in the powder drop position, work the linkage a couple of times to get the last bit out. Whole thing takes 30 seconds, easy as pie.

I just pull the pins on my 550, remove the tool head and dump.

I don't know about other presses.

That's what I do, too. Pull the pins, unclick the throttle cable connector (safety lever on the measure) and pull the entire toolhead from the press. Dump the hopper using a large funnel. Cycle the powder bar a few times to empty the deep , dark cavernous recesses of the measure.
