Here are a few other static charge sources: polyester clothing, rug for bench top, some air filters, dryer in reloading room. Another strange and some times source is a metal bench w/ a piece of glass or some other dielectric acting material as the cover, then other conductor items (think capacitors in parallel) on top of glass. The potential buildup of micro charges w/ humidity could possibly exist. You become the link to xfer a charge from the table to the hopper or your finicky electric scale when grabbed. While some of this is a non-issue, some of it may be just enough to cause the unknown quirks of static buildup. In the world of thousand dollar circuit boards, some of the charge threats came from strange sources. We had to wear a de-zap strap. I don't know, but in the high humidity of the deep south, may be that might be an idea.
