The OPERATOR manual for the 8300 drill has info on how to mix several types of seeds together to get the final result.

anthony, Use the chart on the inside of the Drill lid! On 8300s they either have the sliding lever on the notchs for calabration, some 8300 drills had the 8200 sliding gear & chain set up too. Determine the rate/acre you want, then follow the instructions.
Don't know where you are located but oats and wheat for winter grazing needs to be at around 120/acre, if you intend to harvest, or cut hay later. 80 lbs/acre seems light to me.
You need to get this field planted this week to get it up and rooted down ASAP. Good Luck.
