This stuff takes so many charges to settle, WTF. I am now going throw at least 50 charges to have the stuff settle after changing the amount the powder bar throws.
I threw 30 charges, then I set it to what was 3.4, 34.2, 68.1 charge weights for 1, 10, 20 throws.
300 rounds later I double-checked since new, and it threw a 70.3 for 20, then a 70.1 for another 20.
So now I have 300 rounds that have charge weights varying from 3.4-3.5 or so.
Learned my lesson though, and now I have it set to throw 3.35.
I'm curious whether emptying the hopper after say 500-1000 rounds will keep the throw weight consistent due to stratification as GL said, or if just leaving it as is will be fine.
EDIT: Forgot to mention, this stuff spills powder unlike TiteGroup. TG had some flakes that I could see this year on the shellplate, that's after loading at least 5k rounds.
Prima V had some small powder spilling onto the shellplate for the first 200 or so rounds, then it stopped. I'm guessing the parts of the powder die and funnel where the small pieces could slip through eventually get plugged up by larger pieces of powder. Chalk it up to the variable size of the powder granules I guess.
