    Forgot to put the baffle back in the powder measure and loaded some h335. Should I be worried?

    Do you check your charges on a scale? At least every few loads?

    All the powder baffle does is to ensure an even flow to the "drum" so charges are consistent. You may have a few charges that vary by a .1 or so without it. H335 is not that bad for metering so I wouldn't stay awake and count the "popcorn on the ceiling".

    Yes, I check every 5 rounds and it was normal. When I was done with everything, I looked to my far right and saw the baffle:huh:. Also I seat and crimp separately, so before I seat a bullet I do a visual check and it looked normal.

    I use a vintage Redding measure that has no baffle, and it throws extremely consistent loads.
