For about $8.00, you can get a new charge bar that takes powder bushings. The new bars also have a rubber insert in the shot pocket that prevents shot shearing and bar jamming. With the bushings (about $1.50 each) you have a lot of flexibility in powder choice and charge weight. A new bar would definitely be worth the money.

While you're at it, you might consider a 1 oz bar and some 1 oz wads... for 16 yard trap and for skeet, 1 oz is all you need, it has less recoil, and a bag of shot goes 12% farther.

Also, get a couple of the thin brass washers that go under the rubber gasket on the powder side - they're less than a buck for a bag of 2. They prevent powder from migrating out of the opening when the bar is cycled.
