To produce consistent results i have to have some extra beans to weigh them down, this also reduces popcorning. I usually weight the basket with the ground coffee and adjust at that point to get closer to my target!
Interesting, not as consistent from visual inspection or how did you measure it? Any taste difference?

Really? I wonder why mine is inconsistent...

Single dosing with hopper type grinders will never work well in terms of no retention for beans in and out, unless you have some substantial mods. And you don't gain much by trying to single dose with a hopper grinder anyway. Just keep the bean level low in the hopper and dose directly into the basket/portafilter as described above.
Well, the idea was to try and keep the beans from getting stale in the hopper, since I use an airscape container to keep them fresh. I thought I'd seen that the sette was good as it gets for single dosing a hopper but maybe I am running into the limitations of the hopper here.
