Default a couple noob mistakes...

One- Don't trust any one scale, if you're lucky you'll only wind up

wasting a few hours with a bullet puller. Otherwise, it's a blown up

gun and possible eye and hand injury.

Two-When you put cartridges in the shaker for cleaning, be sure you

only clean cartridges which won't nest inside each other, otherwise(as with

say .45 and 9mm together) you wind up with a dozen or so bullets

jammed tight with media.

Good advice. Good idea to check scale calibration with weights before use.

Yep, those little boogers like to hide out in one another, good call to closely inspect for that and other defetcs before processing.
