Any way to reload .410 shells?

I've got a Lee Load-All but it's for .410. I also have the single stage LEE press for my pistol/rifle rounds.

Now I only have a Rossi combo gun that shoots .410 and while I only have around 50rds, it's only meant to train my son gun safety/responsibility and how to handle/shoot.

Still, I'd like to be able to reload the shells I do have.

Are there any small kits or maybe adapters I can buy for my press?

Thanks

I'm not sure about attachments for your loader. I have a Mec jr set up for 410 that works great. They are not very expensive. I've had mine for a long time and am not sure what current prices are

Is that a typo? I'm assuming you mean that it's NOT for .410, as they don't make a Load-All for .410 bore. To my knowledge there are no kits available to modify a Load-All for .410 bore.

I too use a MEC 600jr for reloading .410. Nothing special about it except they're small-based and don't want to stand up on their own!! Might want to try the local classifieds for a used one. Even new, they're not too expensive, depending on how much you shoot, it may pay for itself and you'll get a good resale out of it when you're done using it.

Good powder is H110. Many folks say that 2400 is very hard on the shells and reduces life. I've never used it myself in .410 so don't know for sure. Most all hulls are reloadable at least once or twice.

Shotshell loading is all about the 'recipe': match the hull, wad, powder and shot weight.

Yes that was a typo. So other than buying a whole new press, I can't reload .410?

Thanks

Well, if you search the internet you'll find articles on reloading brass .410 bore using .303 british, .444 marlin or other cases!! Brass shells are almost a permanent solution...

There are also some 'manual' ways to load .410 (similar to the older Lee Loader reloading kits). I'll PM you an article...

Check eBay, Craigslist, etc. for a used .410 MEC press, use it and then sell it for almost what you paid! That's not too bad of a deal!
