  •  Scales are set in grains not grams (0+ / 0-)

    The charge is by weight.  A grain is not a single particle of powder, it is 1/7000th of an ounce of powder.  A "grain" of powder consists of hundreds  of flakes, spheres, or cylinders, depending on the type of powder.

    Furthermore, remember the capacity of the cartridge case is finite, so after the proper weight charge is loaded, there may be no more room inside the case.
