First time reloader here loaded about 20 rounds of .45 ACP. I used some Berry's 185 gr SWC bullets infront of 5.0 gr of Unique and a Remington 2 1/2 primer.
My powder measure is an old one, I don't even know who makes it and I plan to replace it if needed. As I was loading it seemed to be inaccurate throwing loads 5.0 gr one time, and 4.6 another, followed by 5.4 gr. How common is this? What do you recommend? Could it be because I'm using flake powder?
Secondly my Lee Classic Turret seems to be misaligned, as the case enters the die it is tilted slightly rearward. It doesn't seem to affect resizing or case mouth widening, however the bullets get seated slightly tilted. My manual suggests a COAL of 1.275 but this seems too long for my gun so I shortened it to 1.255. I'm a bit puzzled by this and could use some help figuring out what to do next.
