FITSC, yes, I specifically weighed the Red Dot charges and the shot weight of the test loads. After I established the functionality at 40 yards, I calibrated the MEC (using a Universal charge bar) to deliver 17.0 gr. for 1-1/8oz of #8 shot.

16.5gr delivers 1145 fps; 17.5gr delivers 1200 fps, so I figured 17.0 is a nice safe zone, allowing for any upward bumps due to slamming the bar and powder settlement.
