Spreader settings for bermuda seed

Can someone give me an idea of the setting for a Scott's Speedy Green broadcast spreader to disperse at a rate of 1lb per 1000ft of TransContinental Bermuda Grass seed (basically a very very fine seed).

Thanks!

Divide your seed in half. Then mix the first half with dry sand at a 5 to 1 ratio. Set your spreader to a very low setting...as in barley open. Make length-wise passes over the area. When you are about 1/2 way finished, the seed in the hopper should be 1/2 used as well. Increase or decrease the opening as needed. Then put down the 2nd 1/2 of the seed cross ways over the area.

Thanks I would have never thought of the sand.
