So can anyone tell me a little about effective techniques to cram more powder into a small case? I decided to try out varget under 55gr bullets in .223. I planned on making 25, 25.5, 26, 26.5, 27, and 27.3 loads and shooting them all for groups and going with the best for a larger run. In practice I found that getting 25.5 gr in the case was about the best I could do and then I had to tap the case on the table a little and was pouring into the funnel from the powder pan from a slight height. Will a funnel with a drop tube let me get all the way up to 27.3 or is that just unrealistic?
