    Blame it on the drugs and lack of BOURBON.

    Why not just weigh charges from the uniflo? In my experience, ball powders meter the best. Sticks next, flakes worst.

    I did that. I weighed 50 charges from the Uniflow. This was to determine charge variation with IMR 8208 XBR, a "miniature" stick powder.

    I wanted to see how well Uniflow charges compare to precisely measured charges. There doesn't seem to be a much difference in velocity variations.

    Hmmm, @jpg366 I think I see what you were getting at now.

    I've been loading from an electronic dispenser thinking that I would eventually just load directly from the dispenser. But I ran into some consistency issues and started weighing the dispensed charges on a beam balance and adjusting them to eliminate charge weight as a contributing factor. I had in mind to eventually get back to loading directly from the dispenser.

    Since I was still weighing charges (double weighing actually) I thought the Uniflow would dispense the initial charge faster than the electronic dispenser could - and it does. So that saves a significant amount of time. So now, instead of using the electronic dispenser, which would be a bit slower but more precise, after seeing the results from the two 50 round tests I ran, there really isn't much difference in just using the Uniflow and precisely measured charges. I'm inclined to go with just the Uniflow.

    I'll be running another 50 round test today with new Winchester brass and unadjusted Uniflow charges, i.e. the charges won't be weight checked.
