    Has anyone had an issue of using a MEC grabber with a charge bar for 1 ounce shot and it loading more than 1 ounce? If so is there a correction to this? On the charge side there are bushings but not on the shot side. Is it possible to "paint" the inside with nail polish or other lacquer to reduce the size of the shot port?

    My loader is loading approx 1.09 oz versus 1 oz using this charge bar. It does it using either 8 or 9 shot.

    MEC sells charge bars for skeet shooters that are suppose to be exact on weight of shot dropped.

    I use a piece cut from an envelope address label and stick it inside the hole for the shot. HMB

    When I wanted to be precise I did what you said in your opening thread. I painted the inside of the bar with fingernail polish and made sure it was real dry before using the bar. Rick

    Thanks I understand volume and had not thought of the weight vs volume as a possibility in the discrepancy

    I'd bet that if you put 7 1/2s in the shot bottle , your dropped weight would be closer to 1 oz .
