    Can anyone out there tell me the inside diameters of shot bushings in 3 digits past the decimal for a Pacific loader in the following sizes; 1/2 oz, 3/4 oz, 7/8 oz and 1 oz. Thanks in advance

    Dillin4,

    It depends on the shot size you are using.

    Here are some close approximations for #8 shot. When in doubt, I always order the next smaller size bushing and then ream it out with a file until it throws what I want it to throw. Remember, it's a lot easier to remove metal from a bushing than it is to add it back in. Good luck.

    .614 = 1 ounce

    .574 = 7/8 ounce

    .532 = 3/4 ounce

    .434 = 1/2 ounce

    Easystreet,

    Thanks for your help. Your absolutely correct, I haven't found a put-on tool for a lathe in the last 40 years.
