Hi Bill,

I just scored the following 410s; Winchester Double-X Diamond Grade 410 Bore Ammo 3" 3/4 oz #7-1/2 Shot Case of 100 Rounds, for $179.00 (on sale, whuuuuu), but I, nor Mom, can get down to clean up the multiple messes when I reload 410s, and I have been invited to an early season grouse hunt as well as a pheasant hunt in Eastern Mont, so I just bit the bullet; we only live once! Now, to get some 8 or 8.5s for early season grouse and quail. The last time I heard of the Win Double X loads, I was informed that they were #8s & 9s??? I have a friend who is going to load some for me for late season quail, but I'm just getting going earlier this year, good thing, as NB said, you never know when you have gone on your last hunt. As an aside, does anyone know where I might get some B&P Extra Rossa 28ga fiber wad loads in 8s??

All the Best to Everyone during the Upcoming Seasons, Tom

Tom, I load 3" shells. I'll have to check this afternoon but I do have Li'l Gun data for those shells.

Tom, I load 3" hulls. 11/16 oz shot and have recipes for 13.11g Li'l Gun and 13.7g W296. I use the SP410wads or the BP Max410 wad with a .410OS card. Both powder charges work off a #10 bushing in my press.

I have a "custom" .73 oz. loading for 3" 410s that involves using Cheddite hulls, H110, roll crimps, and nickel plated shot. It is the hammer of Thor on small game birds like doves and quail. I took a limit of doves with it on opening day about three weeks ago, with my 30" barreled Dickinson S X S.

Been real busy with farming, Tom, but I'm trying to get you some loaded before you come to GA for your late quail hunt this winter. I need to see if I can get another 100 new, primed hulls.

Edit to add: Just did another online search and every supplier I can find is out of stock on the new, primed 3" Cheddite .410 hulls. Bummer .........

What do you need exactly, Bill? Brand?

I always used 296 until couldn't find it and only could find Lil Gun. Powder works well. Not switching back.

Stan, I would use any 3" hull in good condition. However, I know you use 3" hulls and I wouldn't like to cut into your supply.
