When hit with a pencil twice, weight was 85 grains. When hit with a pencil three times, weight was 88 grains, and when jarred by hitting the measure with a knife, which jarred the powder below the edge of the measure, then filling the measure up again and striking it off we secured 92 grains, which you will please note is 9% grains in excess of the standard weight. Going through the same operation with the New "E. C." smokeless powder, we secured weights as follows, in their order 33, 33J4, 35-4, 36)4, 37 grains. Now please note that with the Ideal measure set at' three drachms, and using Hazard's F. F. G. black powder, the weight secured was 82'A grains, which is identical with the weight secured in the Dixon measure, using the same powder, when the latter is not jarred. This shows pretty plainly that the Ideal measure and the Dixon measure are of the same ca pacity. We prove this over again, when with the New "E. C "smokeless powder, the Ideal measure when set at three drachms, will be found to throw 33 grains, which is the same as that thrown by the Dixon measure, when it is used by simply dipping and striking off, without any hitting or jarring. With the Ideal Universal Powder Measure there is no hitting or jarring required. With a simple movement of the handle back and fourth, which all persons can do alike, the quantity delivered will be found regular and uniform. As to which should be the standard, each one must decide for himself. We, however, recognize no standard other than the Apothecaries' Scales, .to which all manufacturers of powder and ammunition refer when testing for scientific and accurate results. As most of the tables of charges published by the powder and ammunition manufacturers, in ...Read Less
