This is going to be a bit of a ramble. I would like to weigh the powder charge of some 30-06 cartridges I loaded a very long time ago (20+ yrs) so as to be able to duplicate them now. What is the best way to do this the most accurately? Should I weight the entire cartridge, then pull the bullet, dump the powder, weigh the case and projectile and subtract the lower number from the higher to get the weight of the powder? Should I just pull the bullet, dump the powder on the scale and weigh it? (I feel like I'll lose some powder in the process.) Part 2: The reason I'm doing this is I want to do some loading while I'm home with the stay put orders in place. Yet I find myself somewhat short of powder to do both load development and load ammo. Our mayor just ordered Cabela's et al closed. (They were likely out of powder anyway.) SOOO...I find myself in a spot where powder will be unavailable for some time. I'm trying to decide if I should use up the powder I have now, or hold on to it. Or should I just load up some known ammo (47 grn 4895 Garand ammo) to boost my inventory. I can't go to the range anyway, because we're not allowed to travel between towns; the gun range in town was ordered closed and the next nearest one is in the next town.
