    I was wondering if anyone has programmed their own dispenser/scale for birdshot similar to something like the Frankford Arsenal Intellidropper. Obviously it would need to be bigger to accomodate birdshot instead of powder.

    A lot of sources recommend weighing non-toxic shot by hand instead of using a charge bar, so I thought this might be a decent way to do things.

    I know there is always the option to just make a scoop out of a shell, and that is obviously a cheaper and easier route for individual shot size/payload combinations. I think a dispenser/scale would be a lot better for testing out several different loads when trying to find the pattern you want.

    Everything is possible with a raspberry pi and some coding

    You could get a drug scale for like $20 at a smoke shop. Usually accurate to the .1 gram and most weigh grains too

    I use a calculator to convert grams into grains and then I just weigh it.
