I have a question about the dipper and weighing charges. I'm working on a trap door 45-70 load. My Lee manual lists a load @ 27 gr IMR4198 dipper 1.9.
Now when I weigh out the dipper it comes up shy of 27 gr. In fact it comes up at anywhere from 25.3 - 26.3 averaging 25.78 over 10 dips.
So my question is: Can I just use the dipper and safely stay below the 27 gr charge or should I weigh the charges and forego the dipper?
