Re: Advice for fine tuning my loads

One thing I always do is after I weigh out on my rcbs chargemaster, I fine tune on my dillon balance beam,every load. Might be one to as many as four or five kernels, not grains, but kernels of powder, long or short. I get plus or minus 6 feet per second standard deviation in chronographed velocity with this method.

Re: Advice for fine tuning my loads

I'll second the recommendation to buy Shawn's video. If nothing else his tip on how to measure to the ogive, seat the bullet and then fine tune each one so that the length to the ogive is the same for each one is worth the cost of the DVD.

I had his DVD up and running on the computer on my reloading bench the first time I did some of the things he recommends. Since then it has become second nature.
