I must start by admitting that I find reloading an absolute chore...and virtually weep tears of boredom whilst doing it. My 'powder dipper and weigh every charge' technique is effective, but numbingly slow. I don't shoot enough to justify an automatic measure to myself. In the hopes of speeding myself up, I've just ordered a Lee Perfect Powder Measure. Other than "you've bought the wrong one" /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif I'd be grateful for any tips on maximising its consistency.....my aim here is to increase my production rate whilst still producing accurate 500yd ammo. -any machine operation 'technique tips'(to maximise consistency)? and - any employment tips (ie deliberately throw light charges and trickle up on a balance scale, aim for exact weight and just check every 5th throw, or anything else)? many thanks!
