    What Grain is it?

    I have some 40 Cal FN SWC bullets that I do not have what grain they are. How do I determine that ? My apoligies if this sounds ignorant but i have never encountered this in my short time of reloading. PS I also do not have digital scales if it involves weighing it.

    if you have a powder scale then zero the scale and then weigh a bullrt

    what he said, you don't need a digital scale to weigh a beam will work fine.
