    Just finished upgrading my unit to the Aztec. Everything went fine. Now have to do some sorting to find an outlier piece to sacrifice. Thanks for everyone’s suggestions/ assistance through this question. Once again this site is worth way more than the price of admission.

    Analyzing an "Outlier" will give you a code based on the physical properties of that "outlier"
    For the best results you want to take 10 cases, weigh them, and then select the case with the middle weight value and analyse that one.

    Thanks Matt will do! I’m off to the range in the morning to test some loads.
    Do you recommend using virgin brass or fired brass for the initial test?

    I've always used once fired brass that has been de-capped and wet tumbled for an Aztec analysis.

    Use Fired brass. If you look at this article and scroll to just below point 5 of the "Conclusions" section near the bottom you will see the comment on selecting brass.

    You also might find the rest of the article interesting when it comes to case weight variations and how it relates to annealing.
