    I had been reloading and stopped for a while. Now would like to start again but I have a question. I was using Red Dot loaing lighter loads as I was shooting an SKB O/U that kicked like a mule with regular loads. I have some PB wondering if I can use the same settings and Mec bushings with te PB with out any problems?

    Refer to your loading data and your bushing chart.
    Be safe,

    Right! Load only to available data and do NOT arbitrarily exchange components in a load formula. You can't predict the consequences.

    I also encourage the use of a scale.

    I used to use red dot but switched about a year ago to E3. I recently found some of my Red Dot loads and had to shoot them and I was surprised at how much more they recoiled than the E3 loads at about the same speed. I know a lot of people would not use anything but Red Dot but I am happy with the E3, less recoil and cleaner burning.
