    for all you guys that buy the bulk powders, Ive gone through 3-4 differnet kinds of encapsulators. I finally got fed up with the cheap plastic ones that always jam and are a mess to work with, so I dropped 200 bucks and got Capsuline-180 from www.capsuline.com, and its by far one of the better investments I've made in a while. It says on the website it can do a 1000 caps in an hr, but so far I am only averaging about 600 caps an hour but im sure that will improve with time. The build quality is fantastic and extremely sturdy and far all you hardcore powder guys, I think this is a worthwhile addition to the aresenal.

    why is that so funny?

    you could save 50 dollars each batch of capsules with it.

    depending on what you're capping

    well, you can obviously order different sized sheets and I think a 000 would easily hold a gram+

    It's going to depend on what type of powder you're capping. The best way to figure out how much powder you've got in each capsule is to divide the total amount of powder you capped by the number of capsules it took to cap all of it. For example if you capped 50g of powder and used 200 capsules you'd have 250mg per cap.

    Oh, okay. Then you'll have enough money to buy more steroids for yourself, excellent.

    I have a cap em quick, and it works fine for me :dunno:

    I capped some CEE using 00 caps, and I get right around .6 grams per cap using a tamper to pack it as tight as possible. I also capped some bcaa powder since the stuff doesn't really dissolve. The number of caps I take each day adds up, and 1000 caps doesn't last very long.
