    GONRA sez - listen to everybody - slug the bore and use a really nice DIGITAL micrometer for Groove diameters. Also, listen to John Boy and get a set of Pin Gages for Bore diameters.

    Three44s - GONRA uses HS-6 for 9mm UZI SMG blasting. Use 231 for subsonic suppressed blasting though. (Sounds like a woodpecker!)

    GONRA weighs everything with my RCBS ChargeMaster then puts pan back onto its Beam Balance to double check. (Just being paranoid as usual.) For smaller charges, DO NOT FORGET to it put a small nail (or wotever) marker in the charged case so...
