[IP] priming bolus amount for silhouette vs sofset

Does anyone have experience with priming both sofsets and silhouettes? I've
been using sofsets for 3 years, and add an extra 0.5 units "priming bolus"
when I change my set. 

Today I inserted a silhouette. It has a longer cannula, and I thought I had
read here that the priming bolus should be 1.0 units. That was too much --
I ran low -- though there were other factors that could have contributed to
a low. 

Does anyone switch back and forth between silhouettes and sofsets and know
how much the relative priming boluses are? (I'm less interested in people's
"absolute" amounts. For example, I know that some of you require a 1.0 unit
bolus for a sofset, which would be too much for me. It would be more useful
to know that "silhouettes require the same bolus as sofsets" or
"silhouettes require 0.5 MORE than sofsets".
