Take 1 of my video for loading single stage and weighing out the powder to within .02 grains. This shows my set up and how I load my custom ammunition with my single stage set up. This was our first video take and I'm thinking I want to redo it to smooth it out in a few spots.

Next video we make will be the progressive press video (my bulk ammo), showing how it's loaded and the powder being thrown by volume.

Chad, Nicely done on the video. (I posted this in the videos section first on accident)

You mentioned that measuring to the .02/grain helped with "precision", especially related to minimizing extreme spread. That's the technical side of things of course.

Simply as constructive advice - I am not sure who you are making the video for. Are you making the video to market your business (i.e., for people who do not reload), or are you making the video to help reloaders better understand the mechanics of reloading? You own a business that sells to people who do not reload, so I assume the former. If that's the case, I think you could add a few more basic comments while keeping the technical explanation. In addition to talking about extreme spread, do you think you should mention more simply that the reason you measure to .02/grain is for (1.1) accuracy on target and (1.2) ethical shots on animals? I think it would be a nice addition that would help you market to people not quite so familiar with the reloading technicalities that many on this portion of the forum already have. My two cents.

Really though, nice video.

Nice work. Would you consider other vids on either suggestions from THF members or maybe reasonable threads here? It would be very cool to share your expertise and overall knowledge.

Just a thought. Knowledge is power and you have it to share. Maybe a mini series on certain topics?

Take care,

Didn't recognize you without a ball cap.... You should do a series of loading for precision and put it on YouTube.

Anybody ever watch TiborasaurusRex's "Sniper 101" Youtube series? There is a wealth of info including about reloading. When I first learned of the series it was up to about 70 or so videos. I watched all to that point. Now at 97. Ammo vids start at #46...
