Anyone have a chart for Mec powder bushings in decimal. I have a adapter for Mec bushings, and need a corresponding chart with Horniday bushings. 10tenner

Just use the chart for the powder you are using. All the powder manufacturers have them redily available online. They aren't machined accuratly enough for a decimal chart, just in the ball park. That is one of the reasons why Mec bushings are so cheap compared to what Hornady, RCBS, PW, etc.

As for me, I'll stick with using what Hornady has to offer.

I agree ect90 i'll stick with the hornady bushings, Reason a higher degree of accuracy. Hornady makes there bushings are divisible by three. 447\3 if its woks out to a hole number theres a bushing.

How "accurate" does a bushing need to be??

If it drops the right weight it is good to go.

If you use charts only and do not have a scale you should not be reloading.

I just bought a MEC adapter from Whiz because I can got a bunch of MEC bushings at a great price - less than 1/3 the price of PW/Spolar/Hornady bushings.

10tenner, I sent you an email that shows the bore diameter of MEC bushings in thousand's of an inch. Not sure if this is what you wanted, but email is pretty inexpensive. The chart was gift from another viewer of Trapshooter.com to me when I requested it a month or so ago. Great web site isn't it!!! Bob R.

"What's a decimal bushing?" One that has been divided by fractions! Thanks for the help, and those who sent emails. 10tenner

Don I'm not saying your thinking is wrong. I feel more comfortable with a finer dergee of accuracy, That maybe because I've worked in machine shops for over thirty years. I'm acustom to spliting hairs all day. I've also found powders do vary from keg to keg. Maybe one bushing like a 447 to a 450 or a 444. Just my experence. Lou

Jollytrapshooter now that you have the bushing chart why don't you copy and paste it here and we can all see it. Or is it a major secret that the rest of us are not supposed to see????

Wes: It's difficult to format your data here. I'd recommend doing it in a Excel or Word, then do a screen print and save it as a JPG, then insert it as a photo.

If you click my URL above, I have listed the P/W bushing diameters. This info is from P/W.

Whiz,
The file I have is in Excel. When i copy and pasted, it didnt look the same. Not really a computer guy hehehehe I will send it to you by email. I got the file from a person here and I feel bad cause I forgot who sent it to me. I looked in my emails and guess I have cleaned house. I havent measured any bushing myself. Kind of like a powder chart... weigh your powder! I did weigh some SOLO 1000 and made note of what they dropped with the powder I have. Like you well know always check weights. Check your email I just sent it to you. It has 2 different sheets too look at.. one is Mec and one has Mec,PW and Hornady bushing mixed in order.

Respectfully
WesleyB
