    Various brands, twice loaded. Was what I collected from my last batch of Xmetal ammo I bought.

    Like I said all I could figure it was. Is my Chrony. Both times measured out 4.0 grn. All I did was add more crimp for the semi auto. But even yesterday it was running 100 FPS hotter.

    New numbers look reasonable. I have suspected my chrony for having a bad day once in a while. You shouldn't need much crimp for an auto, just take out the bell. If you overdo it you will actually reduce the tension of the case on the bullet.

    I only added a hair more. I ran 75 of my loads thru it w/o a issue. And I'm running a 12# recoil spring. Its a soft shooting gun now. I think I'm going to lock my powder measure where it is.
