Cheers, but it seems too light - I'll get one of the calibration weights from work to check the accuracy! :lol:

I've read that the weight on these varies, so it'll be interesting to see if the other comes in at the same weight?

IIRC the first ones out of the extruding die would be that weight and go up as the die wears, I think I had some in the 380 range before.
