The guns are sighted in. There was a bit of drama after Kubota's friend, The Great Brain, helped him sight in his gun. But now everything is good.

I had an anomaly in the reloading room. I set the powder measure for 6.8 grains of a popular pistol powder. I double checked it. I ran about a hundred rounds. I rechecked it and it was 7.8 grains. 7.8 grains is WAY over max for the cartridge I am reloading.
My technique is to make five powder drops into the scale's dish. That smooths out the noise.
It looks like I have to pitch about a hundred rounds.
I checked the powder throw between full powder hopper and nearly empty powder hopper and saw almost no difference. I considered the possibility that I had thrown four measures instead of five but that does not work out because 4*7.8= 31.2 grains while 5*6.8=34 grains.
