My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

I trash it, throw it in the yard. We aren't talking dumping pounds of powder on the bench are we? In that case I might try to salvage some.

Noooo, just spilling a half pan when attempting to pour the powder in the funnel.

Was wondering what "any fast mode" is?

I throw some charges with H50BMG and it is all over the place by like .6 grains over sometimes when it "thinks" for those last ones. Went to McDees for straw today and going to try that. Felt guilty just taking straws so bought a hot apple pie. Did you know they jacked them up to 69 cents. I thought they were 2 for a buck on the dollar menu. I should have just took the straws. I know about the load short and drop a couple in to make weight but I like having it do everything. I can throw a load and go over and seat my bullet while next load is going. Hope the straw deal fixes this.

I think there is more than 1 speed to them. Dont really remember since I havent looked at the book in over a year. Ive NEVER had a drop that was .6 over or under...never. Lots of times its .1 or .2 UNDER....and then it sits there...gears a groaning...and finally drops a kernal or 2 and makes it A-OK.
