    For PB powder users. What bushing (MEC) are you using for around 20.5 grains of PB powder. I do have a scale. Just wanting to check the capacity of a couple of bushings. Thanks...Crazy Chester

    I loaded PB on a Grabber a hunnert years ago, and my notes showed I dropped 20.2 with a #32.

    I know that volumes differ on a single-stage v. progressive reloader, but I disremember which direction the variance is: 31 - 32 - 33 should get you pretty close.

    Whatever drop you have is what you'll have: PB meters just like water.

    Thanks for your input unknown1. And thanks for your link...I have every bushing chart known to mankind. I know where to start... I've been loading this powder for years...I've come across some older bushings of the same numbers, from an unknown source that are throwing substantially different weight of PB powder...all I want to know is what MEC bushing some other users of this powder may be utilizing. I'm also checking the accuracy of my TWO scales...Thanks, crazy chester

    I load 20.5 for 1oz singles and get an exact drop(scaled) w/ a #33 MEC bushing.I scale every keg of powder and keep checking the drop to always be on the safe side!

    It's a great load w/ AA/STS,Claybuter wad and WN209 primer!
