    my shot bushing is throwing slightly over 1 1/8 ounce, powder is fine, should i try the size lower and settle for slightly less than 1 1/8. weights are done on an older but good shape rcbs 505. i am loading on a new pw 2000 on a very solid bench.

    Since shot is being dropped by volume rather than weight, the alloy of the lead will actually determine how much a given volume weighs. Pure lead (soft shot) is heavier than magnum shot. My PW 900 drops 476 grains of hard shot (1.089 oz) and 508 grains of soft shot (1.15 oz) from a 1 1/8 oz bush.
