Why not (instead of the double-disk kit) just deliberately double-charge? On the Turret, the auto-disk has a return spring and double-charging is just a matter of short-stroking the ram. Easily done, and if done right, carries no risk of stripping the indexing ratchet.

On another question, if you have a disk cavity that throws slightly too light of a charge you CAN ream out the cavity just a little. Be sure to mark it clearly as oversized.

If a cavity throws a little too heavy a load, you can drill a hole in the side of the disk into the powder cavity, thread the hole to accept a machine screw and use the intrusion of the machine screw into the cavity to reduce the powder capacity.
