I just bought a Mec 600 Jr for a 20 ga, 3 weeks ago.
The supplied charge bar is to drop 7/8 oz of shot (7 1/2).
When I measure my shot charge on a scale, I'm 20 grains short of a full load. I've checked this on several different days and it's always short 20 grains, which is about 10-11 pellets.

How do I solve this problem? Emails to MEC have not been helpful.

Your thoughts please!

20 grains, or 10-11 pellets probably isn't worth worrying about. It's just the principal of the thing for me.
If it's advertised to drop 7/8 oz, then it should.
The powder bushing (# 24) is dropping within .2-.3 grains of powder consistantly.

But you know, 10-11 pellets per load could improve your score quite a bit. And I need the help. :)

quartering said:
is your scale accurate?

besides, it's not the 10 shot that your press didn't dispense into the wad the missed the target; it was the other 296 shot which were dispensed into the wad that missed the target.
good luck with it
Which means it's "operator error". :(
Which has been suggested to me. :oops:
