Does anyone here have first-hand knowledge of how a major manufacturer of ammunition [Winchester, Remington, etc.] meters the powder into their cases?

Assuming their equipment measures by "volume" rather than "weight" [just like our powder measures], how do they deal with "difficult" powders concerning consistency?

Or do they not concern themselves with +/- several tenths of a grain? Has anyone ever pulled the bullets from factory loads and weighed the charges to check consistency?

For some reason I've become obsessed with this lately . . . testing my own equipment with various powders under varying conditions.

I suspect that they simply don't use "difficult" powders concerning consistency. :wink:

I've been in evry ammo plant in the country and all use some form of volumetric measure.

I think Snake is right and they have at their disposal hundreds of powders that are not available to reloaders so they can pick and choose.
