    1. page 8 of your owners manual. resizer ring should be 1/16th of inch of the plate with handle all the way down....are you going full down on each stroke.
    2. You need a good scale and check each bushing powder drop.
    3. Winchester AA hulls, winchester AA wads for 1 1/8oz

    gmag, STOP! Before you load anymore you need to get a set of scales and some type of reloading manual, either Lymans or Reloading for shotgunners. The scale is a necessity and if need be get a freebee powder manual or atleast look at the Alliant website for info you are seeking.

    I get the feeling your new to reloading ? If that is the case please do STOP . The very first thing you need is a good reloading manual read it and read it again . Then buy a Scale never ask anyone what to load without checking your MANUAL also . If not please don,t shoot next to me .

    Gary, Do Not Shoot those shells you loaded until you know what you loaded?? Go to Alliantpowder.com and check the components you used against a loads that they have listed. Check your powder drops to find out what you have loaded and make sure you are loading your future loads with the correct amount of powder. With Red Dot powder I hope you did not use the #32 bushing. This will be more than any load with that powder. #31 will be at top end of data for that powder. Powder drops vary with the machine and the amount of movement the machine gets from the user between powder drops so each will vary. You must buy a scale and use it to find out. #29 drops at 17.l grs. and #31 drops at 18.5 grs. and #32 drops at 19.2 grs of powder. These numbers are just starting points and will need to be fined tuned to you. Different primers and Wads will very the amount of powder you need to drop, as does the speed you want the load to travel at. so go find a load with the components you are useing.Try to keep the chamber pressures below 10,000 psi. when reloading.Good Luck and Break-em all. Jeff
