The filling stand is specifically designed for use with Powdertainer II BPCs. The filling stand with casters aids in the loading of powder into the BPC (see figure). The filling stand is manufactured from 304 stainless steel.

Operation

The Powdertainer II BPC is initially connected to the filling stand. This is done by clamping the 3-inch powder port to the filling funnel using the 3-inch tri-clamp connector provided on the filling stand. Elastic support straps with hooks (11-inch, available in home improvement stores) are used to support the weight of the powder when filling the Powdertainer II BPC. One end of the elastic support strap should be hooked to the support pin of the filling stand, while the other end should be hooked through the prepunched holes in the edge of the Powdertainer II BPC.
