    Looks like the performance of Rex II is the same as Green Dot. At least, from what I saw on their chart. Any opinions?

    Rex-2 is good powder, Although I did not some migration, but not bad.
    Just finished loading out 2000 rounds of Rex-2 in Rio hull's for 2d shot in Doubles.
    I used Chedditt primers, Downrange Wad-WJ, 20 grains of Rex-2, 1.1/8 oz reclaim shot.
    I just ordered another 25 lb.

    Slickhead, I've been loading Rex II for years. It performs very similar to Green Dot at 2/3 the cost. Most times the powder bushing recommended is the same. I say most times because bushing size may vary considerably from one lot to another with Rex II. Be sure to re-check your drop weight when changing containers.
