To piggy-back on what was said above,

It helps to have a good beam scale for weight, don't just trust the label on the box, digital scales can be tempermental and are subject to all kinds of variables that you may not wish to fiddle with. Calibrated beam scales are what I've found to be the most trustworthy. Measure several bullets to get an average weight.

Velocity is measured by using a calibrted Chronograph in proper lighting. Again, fire several rounds through it to get an average velocity.

When testing loads, it helps to have 10 or so rounds of each receipe in a zip lock bag or equivilent. Label each bag and start with your lighter loads. Us a log and write down your measurements per load.

That way, you can Chrono all of your potential loads at once.

Good luck,
