    I just bought a 410 and I got eight pounds of 2400 powder, 5000 Federal 410SC wads and Remington STS hulls. Does anyone show a book load using these components together? I can only find one load for 2400 in a Remington Hull. It looks like Alliant is pushing their new 410 powder.


    Thanks Jack

    Jack,

    PM me with your email address and I'll email you a copy of an older Alliant manual (2004) with loads for 2400 in the 410.

    thats yur best bet is in the older manual , but dont expect a lot of loads from anyone company cause there isnt many ways to load them , the 2400 and the likes of are limited powder for the 410 i used a lot of lil gun and i tried the new 410 powder , it really works nice in them, good luck loading they can be a learning experience ,

    If you can find some military surplus WC820 powder, it is better
    than anything else I have ever found for .410 ga. Jeff Bartlett
    at gibrass.com used to sell it but he is currently out of that
    particular powder. It was originally used in the .30 cal carbine
    ammo for the military and loaded using Lil Gun or H110 recipes
    as a starting point. I ran hundreds of rounds of .410 ammo through
    my chronograph over a period of a year or so, using all three of the
    above mentioned powders. The WC820 was just outstanding! If I
    remember right, buying it 8 pounds at a time and paying HazMat, etc.,
    it cost less than 10 bucks a pound last time I bought it. I used
    WC820PD which is a "pulldown" powder. With around 13 gr. per shell,
    you can load a LONG time with 8 pounds... That's over 4000 rounds
    of those little beauties. If you can find any WC820 for sale, drop
    me an email and I'll send you lots of test results with different
    wads, hulls, etc...

    Pat,
    Thanks for the kind words. Yup, I'm still kickin' but doing
    more Trapshooting now than Skeet. Haven't shot a round of skeet
    with the Model 42 for probably a year now. Still have several
    hundred rounds of .410 ammo loaded (with WC820) and sitting on
    the shelf. Maybe one of these days, or maybe not. Had Cataract
    surgery last Fall and vision is better now, maybe I should get
    the little gun out again and give it a try.....
    Good to hear from you again, sorry it has been my fault that
    I haven't been here on TS.COM for a while. Moved from Indiana
    to South Carolina and took a while to get hooked up with a new
    Club here, etc. Also, have 4 grandkids living about a block from
    our house here and they keep us VERY busy..
    Again, thanks for the kindness.

    Adam

    Thanks got the info I need to start reloading tomorrow, Hoped to start reloading tonight but I still have to work to support my shooting addiction. Working just seems to get in the way of the important things of life.

    Thanks for the heads up on the WC820 powder can you give me the recipe you use? I will keep my eyes out for some WC 820 I have a couple of pounds of WC844 and Data 2200 is there any 410 loads for those powders?


    I will be using a MEC Grabber and I have been told to use #8 or smaller shot otherwise it will bridge in the shot tube. Is there any other advice that might help?

    Jack,
    I use 13 gr. of WC820 in AA HS hulls with a Yellow Duster wad
    and 13.8 gr. of the same powder in Rem. STS hulls with a Rem.
    SP410 wad. The Rem SP410 wad works well in the HS hulls also,
    but is about twice as expensive as the Yellow Dusters. I haven't
    tried any of the 'new' Claybuster HS wads for the .410, so don't
    want to give any second-hand unverified advice.... I know that
    the old non-HS Claybusters were almost unusable in the .410 HS
    hull. Their performance was strictly a "hit or miss" guess.
    "hit or miss", guess that is a pretty appro-pro comparison, huh?
    I load #9 shot all the time, since I use my .410 Model 42
    strictly for Skeet shooting. I really don't have any experience
    with heavier shot, but the idea of it hanging up in the shot
    tube makes perfectly reasonable sense. That tube is pretty
    small.....

    Have fun, but use your Chronograph frequently
    to keep up with what you are doing. It's the
    ONLY way to know what's what!

    Actually, a few skeet shooters have told me the new "410" powder from Alliant works pretty well. I don't have first hand experience with it. I've used a lot of the H110/WW296 powder with good results. I always have a bunch of that for the magnum handguns, so it is a natural thing to use.
