I have never assembled loads with non-toxic shot. Do you weigh each charge of shot, or do you use a 7/8 ounce bushing to meter by volume?

I discovered my 1 oz. # 7 1/2 shot bushing throws perfect 7/8 oz loads of #5 bismuth. If it hadn't I was going to get another 7/8 oz bushing and turn the ID until I got the weight I was looking for. Did that for my 1 1/4 oz. 10 ga. loads. Bushings are cheap and easy to bore out to any custom size needed. I don't want to have to weigh each shot load out.

Keith, I never missed a bird or a clay due to the speed of my shotshells. When I miss it's always by 8".
