My point exaclty. Trying to remember stuff & transfvering data canbe very dangerous. Verify the data, write down, double check that, Then when you actually reload, duible check that. You ca never be careful enough. I read stories all the time of really stupid reloading accidents that are 100% preventable. Like a recent one of a guy loading PP instead of some stick powder into 223 rounds. KB is AR & his buddies in a 3 gun match. How, the powder look nothing alike. Read the lable, verify everything 2, 3, 4 or as many times as needed to NOT make the mistake. Anything else is a Darwin project IMO. Harsh yes, but I may be standing next to you when your gun self destructs. I hate that.

HEy, I travel to shoot. I was out that way last year @ the GA & Tenn state IDPA matches & So in Tenn. So anything is possible.

Glad that you're o.k.

yeah, powder check die, weight, some sort of confirmation every 25 rounds or so to be sure nothing weird is going on.

I agree with BMiracletx. I use a Hornady LNL progressive with the Power Cop die. It really helps you see if you have a double charge. Definitely weigh your loads that are complete. You can do it in batches, and if a batch is out of whack, you can check individual loads.

Again, weighing your ammo w/ charges less than 5gr will be pointless. Just pay attention to what you are doing. Doubling a charge on ANY press is just lack of attention. Some people are better off not reloading because they can't be dilligent. Nothing wrong with that, "a man has got to know his limitations".

I think the biggest causes of double loads or squibs from a progressive press is pulling out a load to do a powder weight check. If you are going to do this do not put the brass back on the press!
