    Default 410's

    Loaded my first ever 410's today. 2 1/2'" shells with 1/2 oz. of #9's. Cost comes out to 13.8 cents a piece or $3.45/box. Way cheaper to shoot skeet with these. Since the cheapest 410's I see in the store are $9.95 /box up to $15.00/box. Forgot add powder cost in original equation.

    Your the first I've heard of reloading .410's. Good for you. Wonder why others don't follow the same.

    Most skeet shooters shooting in the .410 class reload the 23/4 shells. I know a couple who do.

    The 2 1/2 will bust clays. I enjoyed busting some this morning. They don't make a 2 3/4" 410. All are 2 1/2" or 3".

    Yes my bad on length. I always shot 3” shell in my .410. So I never dealt with the short shells. Did shoot with some guy in va at a gun club. I shot a 12 and all the others shot 28 and 410. Haha they all out shot me. They knew their stuff. They all reloaded their shells even my 12 ga shells they supplied. It was a good shoot with a borrowed gun. I shot a borrowed Browning Citoria and want one today.

    You can definitely tell the difference shooting the 2 1/2 then the 3" 410. I'm having loads of fun right now with a 410 under & over choked skeet & skeet. Figure if I get good with the 410 then the 12 or 20 will be a cake walk. Plus I can load 2 410's for what one 12 reload cost. Being a decent shot takes practice.......I'm trying to get there. Burning a lot of powder now......Couple of weeks before turkey season my woods go silent.

    I do the same thing but run a 28 O/U with cyl/skeet for skeet. Been threatening to buy a 28 loader.

    I'm having a blast!!!!!!!!!........Running 4 Mec 600's loading 12-20-28-410. Try to shoot(limit myself to) 50 rds everyday on my skeet field. Different guage each day. Shooting by myself this only takes about 30 min.. The Browning Citori is a great shotgun............You may wear it in.........But never wear it out.
