Re: Weight vs. Volume

When baking I no longer measure flour by volume but strictly by weight.
Exception to this rule is sometimes when baking biscuits, but there I pour in the buttermilk by FEEL and I hand squish the results to shape before placing on the cookie sheet.

With powder, the highest end competition measures are volumetric.
Despite Hornady and RCBS selling automatic powder scale tricklers I don't think that buys you anything.
My Redding 3BR isn't really in the same league as the competition measures but I've found it to be very consistent and any variation in what it throws is completely lost in other variations including the biggest one which is the wingnut behind the trigger.
