Any issues with Red Dot and reduced loads that any of you are aware of?

I have not used Red Dot for reduced loads, but I do load up reduced loads with Blue Dot. The number one concern when using small amounts of fast pistol/shotgun powder in rifle cases is "Double Charging" a case. A double charge will easily fit in the case and could be "Deadly" when fired. Extra steps must be taken to prevent a "Double Charge". When I load with Blue Dot I always weigh my loads after I seat the bullets. They should all weigh within a grain or two depending on the case size etc.

What are you planning to load with Red Dot?
