Whether you have reloaded in the past or not or is something that you would like to do, it is important to do things as consistantly as possible. When you do things consistantly, accuracy is almost automatically the result. Now I have seen and heard of many people, that when putting in their powder, they often just use the through for measurement. Often times never measuring their powder charge more than every five rounds or so. I personally tried this, to see how accurately you can measure your powder this way. What I found is that about every six loads or so, you get a drastically different amount of powder, Ooops. Now for the average hunter this may not be a concern, but when it applies to shooting accurately and long distances, then that is simply not acceptable. The way I figure it is, there is already more than enough things that effect my bullet after it leaves the barrel and I should do my part in reducing everything that is in my ability to control. Even though it takes a bit longer, I prefer to measure and weigh every single round that I reload. Which in turn gives me the most consistency and the best accuracy for my reloads.
