I am trying to locate information to load .410 shotshells using brass hulls and smokeless powder.

Anyone have any sources?

Thanks

Mike

    I have aluminium ex military shells. I just used a power piston and a card wad on top with a rolled type crimp.

    What powder? I have both Unique and 2400.

    I used both unique and 2400. My favorite load was 5 .383 hard cast round balls, would print the Olimpic symbol at 40 yards.

    Charlie,

    That's a great idea. Been thinking about fireforming some 303 British brass for 410 shotshells.

    Where to get the card wads or do you punch them out with a die?

    What do you use for making the roll crimp?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    My shells were aluminium 3 inch from the air crew servival rifle como 22hornet/410. I cut the wads from tablet backs and waxed milk cartons. I still have the die to cut wads somewhere and like 100 cases. My sister has the Savage 22LR/410 that I loaded for now.

    I tried the waterglass sealer but it didn't hold very good for me. A regular type sizing die, (it was during the early 1970's) that I just rocked and turned the loaded shell into, don't recal what it was. I think a correct sized hole started in a piece of steel would make a nice crimp former.

    Have made shot load for a 44 Mag with 303B or 30-40 brass.
