Default shot shell reloading

I have never reloaded shot shells and I am about to try. A few questions are coming up. I bought a bag of lead number six. I put a one and a half shot bushing in the press I threw and weighed a few shot charges. What I found was a difference of twenty grains between charges. Is that too much? Also the charges were twenty to forty grains over the ounce and a half. Will that cause problems.How important is it to use the brand of primer listed I had a fellow that reloaded for Years tell me it was the only thing that could be changed from the written data.
