    I finally got out and chronographed some ammo that was charged with the chargemaster. I tested 6 different loads, 5 of the 6 loads had a spread of 20fps or less, the 6th was approaching max and got a lil erratic, so the spread was slightly higher. I have to say I am impressed with how well it meters, I cant do any better, hand measuring them myself on a balance beam.
    All the loads tested were on the bone stock unit.

    Today I picked up a McPukes straw and set up the straw method. This really fine tuned the trickling on the scale and over charges are almost non existent now. I loaded up 50 rds and only dropped 3 charges back in the hopper that were 1/10th of a grain over.

    I finally did it! I poured powder in the hopper and I didnt close the side drain hole! D'oh!

    I luckily was pouring slowly and didnt lose more than a ounces of powder. I heard this weird noise as I was pouring, thought what is that and about the same time realized what was happening...lol Damn it..lol

    Exactly like that! Or hearing a broken pipe in the house, you know exactly what it is, but just doesnt register immediately..lol
    The response is always the same, once you realize the problem, OH SHIT!

    I cut a plastic bottle down to fit exactly under the drain spout on mine. I keep it there all the time. If I forget to close it, no problem. I also use it to catch the excess powder at the end of my pouring session.
