    Reloading isn't that precise; you aren't running a laboratory where you have to weigh a gnat's eyelash.

    Take one match bullet. Label it or put it in a labeled container. Use that as your one check weight.

    For years and years I used a 52-gr .224" match bullet as my check weight because it was close to the maximum powder charge I use. If I zeroed my beam scale at 52.0 grains with that bullet, it was more than good enough.
    I may be a bit crazy - but I didn't drive myself.

    I use a Lyman set bought when on sale.
    The Lyman set is less expencive than RCBS.
