1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I purchased a new electronic scale and you must use a 100 gr weight to set it. It did not come with the weight and my old scale came with a 200 grain weight which didn't help. Any suggestions where I can find one. Jackie B.

    I do not just check with one weight, I use the following...

    17 grain bullet

    55 grain bullet

    180 grain bullet

    240 grain bullet

    I figure that way I have all the spreads covered.

    Buy a Lyman or RCBS scale calibration kit. They aren't free but what you are protecting is worth far more than the cost of the kits. I can't for the life of me figure out why reloaders as a whole will skimp on this point while no chemist worth his salt would ever be without a calibration set. When accuracy matters, one must be accurate. Calibration is the baseline for accuracy.
