Cartridge brass density is 8.53 gm/cc, according to Matweb. That means 0.853 grains, in identically trimmed and primer pocket uniformed cases, will represent 0.1 grains difference in powder space. Since pressure goes up exponentially with increase in powder charge, this is about like a 0.05 grain charge difference. Not usually a significant error. If you charge cases ±0.1 grains, then figure cases ±1.7 grains are roughly equivalent to that.
