I have been at it only 5 years. Really still learning. I want to try to find a 410 loader. I have a 20 and 12 gauge shotgun, not shooting those 2 much and the shells aren't as high as the 410. May not get one for those two. I am currently loading for 5 center fire. Calibers. :)don2

Peggy's been bugging me to buy her a reloader for a long time! I'd like to load center fires but the 410's would be great too (that's what my daughter uses when we shoot sporting clays). The 410's aint cheap for sure and 16 ga is almost impossible to find around here.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

I use to shoot on a trap league where it was common to load 200 shells a week. Now mostly for custom loads for a tack driving 300Win. Mag. .I had it set up for hunting out west but now use for deer hunting all of the time.

Haven't loaded any shotgun ammo for a long time, but rifle and pistol, yes.  I enjoy it.

If you can get some 45 long colt, 45/70, 45/90, or 45/100 brass, they can be loaded as 410 slug and shot shells.  As for the 16 gauge, it is hard to come by.  I have 2 16's and finding shells is difficult, usually when I can find some there's only a box or two.
