    kg, you'll probably have to use a 1 oz. wad instead of your usual 1 1/8oz. Very low volume of powder necessitates this change!!

    I just load 150 last night at 21.2 grains and I am going to try them out today at Jaquas in the caps. Different looking powder.

    "kgdunford..... Does anyone know what mec bushing will drop 20.9 grains of the new Winchester Super Hadicap Powder?"

    Get out your powder scale, everyone that reloads should have one & if you don’t own a powder scale then you should buy one for your safety and those that shoot around you, check the volume weight of the powder in question thrown by your existing MEC bushings, if none of your bushings throw that weight by volume then buy a larger bushing that does..... If the new bushing throws a greater weight by volume than you desire then reduce the ID of that bushing until you get exactly what you’re looking for.... Mark the bushing as to what its intended use is and this process will apply to any powder.
