    Calibration Weight

    Looking for a 20-50 Grain calibration weight for a set of RCBS 5-0-5 scales. Tried a bullet but found this to be unaccurate.

    TJ

    Or-

    Would someboby weigh 3x 5p coins individually and let me know if they are all the same?

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Find somewhere with a very accurate calibrated set of lab scales,get your bullet or object weighed then you have a weight for reference just remember to not use it when reloading

    Thank You!

    I have 20gm and a 30gm weight here , these are the calibration weights that are used to set up your scales .
    I am over to our lease at Cawdor this afternoon and could put them behind the bar at the Tavern for you , if your not about .
    Cheers
