Weighing and melting solder? Sounds like too much work to me, lol ! I'd suggest going with the CDM's first and the PDP's second (although I am currently using PDP's in my 2312's, only thing available at the time, they work, but heaven forbid you try to wrench the weight down too hard because it snaps off !). The screw-in weight system on the Flitemates just seems to be more "sturdy", imo.
PDP would be the easiest to get your weight in a quick and fairly accurate way. You can order 60 gr pts for the 2312 and they have up to 100 gr modules. This is what I use in my 2312's for indoor. 60 gr pt, 100 gr ad on weight for a total of 160 grs.
I use a bit of hot melt on the threads when screwing them together. Never had one come loose.
Sean, is the 100gr add-on weight a fairly new thing? If not, where by chance did you get ahold of those. I thought when I read over some info last year on a retailers website - before ordering my PDP's - that for a 2312 shaft/point a 50gr add-on was the largest available. Hence I had to build up to 180 using 2-50gr and 2-10gr. Makes for a long shank sticking back into the shaft that way and lots more opportunity to snap off the threads screwing the components together (hence I also have a couple put together with 1-50gr, 5-10gr, and 4-5gr, lol !). Sure would be easier to get up to 180gr if I could toss in a 100gr first and then add-on a couple 10gr's.
Thanks BH, same retailer I was referencing as well ! Made me think maybe Sean had a different source, not carried by Lancasters, or that PDP had opted to come out with a 100gr add-on for the 2312 since I purchased mine last winter.
