Weighing Powder Charges
« on: May 05, 2022, 10:11:40 PM »
I'm not a benchrest shooter, but I thought I ask you guys about weighing powder charges.  First, do you actually weigh your charges?  And second, if so, how much precision do you require in your scale?  This question might be better directed at the F-class guys, but I thought I'd check in with you precision shooters.

Most shooters are weighing to the 1/10th of a grain and some trying to the 1/100th which can be challenging as air movement over the scale becomes a big problem.

I weigh.  Throw a grain light and trickle up.

The small gem scale I use at matches gives me enough precision.  I just do not trust throwing charges alone as I just do not shoot enough practice.  If I had the facility to I would definately be shooting more.
