Well the little case held 9.8gr.. by 10=.98grs. So I rounded it off to 1gr pack the cmeal in and poked some paper in the end...I did keep the paper wadding the same size in case that would cause a difference in PSI. Whamo they came out perfect. I had done this in the past but let it slip my mind I reckon.
As far as larger cases I think this formula would work. I don't have anything larger to form. Somebody try it and see.

I believe that is the method Ken Howell has outlined in his book. Ken and I discussed that a little last weekend when I visited him in NM. I still like to just use Bullseye but I am sure his works great mine is just easier. Speedy Gonzales taught me the "Bullseye" technique and he has done hundreds of thousands of cases this way.
