are there any black powder measures that measure in the increments of 5 grs or less?

Try Dixie Gun Works. I have seen a small one for black powder pistols that was 5 grain. Don't know for sure where you might find one though.

If your looking to wring out the last bit of accuracy - try weighing your charges.

Before anyone says it can't be done, I did it for years. I don't shoot T7 or Pyrodex any more, but it sure helped my groups by weighing the powder. There is no other way to get your charges to within a tenth of a grain.

I was a fanatic for a while over accuracy a few years back. I took a Rem 700 mz and had it bedded, recrowned, and a shilen trigger put on it. I used Precision rifle bullets and T7 powder. I weighed powder and sorted sabots and bullets by weight.

All of that stuff helps if you're after tiny groups.
