    I have my Grabber sold and buying a new PW from Whiz. So, I have my one year old unit moved back to Texas wherest it came originally. So, I was checking the stuff that would go with it (bushings and stuff) and looked at my charge bars. I have my 1-1/8 in the unit as I am loading for Winter kills. And when I looked in the box for the others I found my one ounce wiht the apparatuses attached and then ollked at my other two to read what they were. Sure enough I had a 3./4 ounce (never used it) and a one ounce... Wait... And so I look at the one Ihad been using and sure enough it was a 7/8 oz. I learned quite a bit from that mistake. In particular how soft shooting the 7/8rs were. Adn that I posted my best scores at singles with those loads. Not too smart, but thought you might get a kick out of the story.

    The big question is will you continue to load 7/8 Oz shells with your new machine?

    BTW, I like the weinie shells too - for singles anyway.
