Welcome to the forum. It is a surprise to all of us, that charge bars & bushings are not PRECISELY accurate. They vary from drop to drop.

You can live without the 20 grains/ 10 pellets, but you can probably improve the situation. The shortage won't hurt. Same with your powder bushing. It varies with drops also.

I only load for "field" loads" so I measure each shell with precision on a ONE-BY-ONE basis, and its slow going; but if you shoot a lot, you will need to live with the shortage.

The alternative, is "jerry-rigging". You know, use a larger Bushing, stick tape inside it to get near exactly the drop you want, or epoxy a piece of plastic in the bushing and use trial and error to see how you can diminish the Inner Volume to drop what you need. Otherwise, even grind out a $3.99 Bushing so that it holds and drops 15 pellets of lead more than the factory specification with consistency.

Shortages = OK, Overages = BAD
