Again, weighing your ammo w/ charges less than 5gr will be pointless. Just pay attention to what you are doing. Doubling a charge on ANY press is just lack of attention. Some people are better off not reloading because they can't be dilligent. Nothing wrong with that, "a man has got to know his limitations".
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".

I think the biggest causes of double loads or squibs from a progressive press is pulling out a load to do a powder weight check. If you are going to do this do not put the brass back on the press!
When dealing with Democrats, let us remember we are
not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with
creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudices
and motivated by pride and vanity.
