Default Re: Gain plugin and RMS calculation

I have a similar situation to the original poster. I'm used to mixing / mastering music based on the usual Volume Wars / streaming loudness parameters. But I have a bunch of audiobook masters I need to deliver between -24dB to -14dB RMS. I had never known about or used the Gain Audiosuite plugin before, so this is great. But do I infer from some of the above comments that the Gain plugin RMS reading is 3(.01)dB lower than the more commonly used standard for calculating RMS? I can always just shoot for -18dB and be in the ballpark I guess, with 3dB margin for error on either side . But would love any tips or suggestions. Thanks!!
