E3 powder is similar density to Clays.
Lee VMD chart says E3 is .1489 and Clays is .1462.
Find a bushing size for the charge weight of E3 you want by looking at the bushing size for that weight of Clays.
Then use your scale to verify you are getting the drop of E3 you want.
You may have to go up or down 1 or 2 bushing sizes to get it just right.

My RCBS bushing chart has Red Dot and E3 using the same bushing. I found the indicated bushing drops heavy charges.

As stated, you'll need to use a scale to see what the bushings drop. Not familiar with a Lee Load All. Hope changing bushings is not a pain.
