    12.5 flats of reloads.

    You will need 9 bags of shot too. (i think)

    Powder brand has nothing to do with the answer to your question. There are 7,000 grains per pound (of whatever) If we are talking about 8 pound jugs of powder, that means you get 7,000 times 8 (lbs) = 56,000 total grains. Now divide this by 18 (this is the number of grains of powder you stated you are using per load). That answer is 3111.11....

    Ps - It is never too late to go to night school.

    How far red dot goes depends on the length of your barrel. I would have to say that the farthest red dot goes is typically around 35inches. Red dot in my gun only goes 30 inches.
