    most all the PW bushings throw less than advertised. My 1 oz is actually 7/8. My 1 1/8 is slightly over an ounce.

    This bushing weight is based on #8 extra hard shot.The weight will vary depending on shot size and shot type.This should be a real good option for those people looking for something between 7/8oz and 1oz. loads.There is not alot of published data out yet.Hodgdons has one that is 14.8gr waalite/win 209/ waa12sl.1145fps.

    My 1 1/8 oz PW shot bushing drops very close to 1 1/16 oz of hard shot. I have never dropped chilled shot (softer) through it, but that would weigh a little more than hard shot. I will get a file and work on the bushing if I think about it when I have a little time.

    I was in the process of ordering a 1 1/16 oz #5.5 bushing on P-W's web site until I noticed that their new shopping cart is not encrypted (secure).

    Sending credit card information unencrypted via an open connection is not the wisest way to do online buying.

    I make my own bushings. However, my PW 1 1/8 is slightly overweight, to the tune of 4-12 gr. with #8 hard magnums. So, not all PWs are underweight.

    Thank you,

    Longshooter- Yours is overweight, mine is underweight. What does that tell us about checking weights with a scale? Of course, I would rather be underweight than overweight. I should check my weight, but I do not fit well on my powder scale.

    get out the scales. I've had them off by two sizes. bore out ones that are under and do a drop test. More than once, if needed. You may only need to go in only 1/2", put the over size up.

    15/16 oz is 410.16 gr.

    I see no good reason to have this bushing. What am I missing?

    Bruce: Got the new proto-type shot and powder bushings with the o-rings-great idea, and rather simple. Why didn't I think of that?

    I use WST and no more minute quantities of powder migration. Hope these will be readily available to my customers.
