Since front stuffers are so sensitive to loading procedure, I started taking my bathroom digital scales to the range with me. I put the butt of my rifle down on the scales, and I can put exactly 50 lbs of pressure on my rod when loading.
This method has resulted in groups about 1/2 the size than when I load with the old "Feel it" method.
My question is, do you guys know of a better way of measureing the pressure on the rod when packing your powder? This method is great at the range, but has no use in the field.
