Now remove the lid and using good judgement and hand eye coordination empty the aquired amount into your pellet pouch.
Replace the lid and carefully stick the tape back on again, making sure that the triangular end goes on last, this will make it easy to redo the whole process again.

This method will give good results, and more time to practice than fannying about with scales!
You forgot the most important thing Conor, you MUST used sized pellets, the shop i buy mine from sizes them for me, he checks the tin has .177 written on it somewhere
