If you are shooting for tight groups, then try to get each load as identical to the next as possible. Keeping everything the same will make a difference. Get a powder trickler (they are very inexpensive) to bring your charge up to your desired weight one grain at a time. It is a lot faster than tweezers.

Very well said. The only thing I do different is use one-half grain increments in powder weight when loading for a rifle.
