Ballast to big?

Guys might be a silly question but can I run a 250w mh lamp off a 600w ballast or will it cause problems??

Provided the ballast can be set at 250w yes, otherwise the bulb will burn out quickly and maybe even explode.

Do not dim or boost mh bulbs.

you can only dim or boost hps and only boost by 10%. 

Match the wattage of the bulb to the setting is best practice
