    You could just weigh the charges with the bushings you have to see if you have the right one for your load.

    That is what I plan to do, but I thought if someone had already done this I would have a starting place.

    I test bushings by setting a bushing in the corner of a 4-inch square of 1/4" glass. I trickle powder into the bushing until it's just a bit overfull and then I strike off the excess. I move the corner of the glass over my scale's pan and slide the bushing off the edge, dropping the powder into the pan for weighing. It's surprisingly accurate and easily gets me close enough to start with.

    Just fyi if any of you are interested; a J-1 throws 16.3 gr of Rex 0 of the lot I have. Based on the data published by Rex, and useing the ID of bushings a L bushing have gotten me in the ballpark. Just goes to show, as always: Weigh don't assume.

    The REX site has that information.
