So, I set my Dillon powder measure for 24.5 gr TAC in a .223 with a 55 gr FMJ. Right in the middle of the range. I hadn't logged the load so I thought rather than just check the measure (still 24.5 gr, BTW), I would pull a bullet and weigh a charge. I got 28.4 gr! I pulled some more and they are averaging 27.7 gr. Way overloaded! I have some more investigating to do. The good news is that I didn't load a 3000 round batch. Still, I've got some bullets to pull! I wonder if running the press at full speed results in the powder settling in the powder bar? If that's the case, how do I determine EXACTLY how much settling will occur at a given cycle rate?
