1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Would like to buy or trade for a nice 410 gauge reloader. Prefer a PW or any nice progressive type.

    I think Rick is eluding to the fact that reloading 410's is a pain in the a$$!

    Don, loading the .410 is fussy business. I've only gotten good quality loads (that I would trust in competition) from a single-stage loader. Two of the most popular powders for loading the .410 (Win 296 and H-110) are very fine-grained and have a tendency to leak from some of the reloaders. Also, the occurrence of wads catching the hull lips during insertion, crimp starters not finding the original folds, drop-tubes pulling the wads back out of the hull when withdrawn (spilling shot) etc. happens more often with the .410 than with other gauges. Using a single-stage reloader allows you to monitor the steps to each shell at each stage of the loading process rather than having a mishap go unnoticed and making a real mess. Then you wonder how many shells you "spoiled". I've had my best luck with a PW-375C loader, and since I wasn't loading anywhere near the volume of .410's as I was 12 gauge, I was more interested in quality than speed-of-production. .....Rick

    I load all (maybe 4000 per year) my .410's on a P/W 800 Plus with the Auto-drive. No problem backing up for a folded wad pedal. No H110 leaking with my machined aluminum base.

    after you pull the handle 7 times to make one shell you will wish you had a progressive loader

    Thanks to all for the advice, but I guess I am hard headed and still determined to load some as soon as I find a loader. If I could sell my 12 gauge PW 2000, and my 20 gauge new Hornady w/gas assist and my PW 28 gauge with the table that you can remove the shells at any station I would just buy the PW 800 Plus with all of the different gauge tooling.

    Loading 410 on some progressives can be frustrating. However, I load about 500 shells a month on the MEC 650 and have no problems. Using the plastic powder baffle eliminates the powder migration problem. Get the MEC 650 and you will be happy as long as you shoot the same gun.

    rennerize,
    You might want to consider a .410 die set for your PW with the removable dies. They are relatively reasonable, around $150. I load 12, 16, 20 and 28 on my P2000 and it only takes about 30 minutes to do the change over gages. Perfect if you can afford the time and saves on loader clutter. Good luck in your quest.

    Scott

    Scott thank you for the advice. I have thought about that, but will probably just buy another loader.

    The MEC 650 does not resize. I personally have never had a need for a resizer with my 12 ga 650 and I shoot 7 different guns. I have 3 O/U 410's and each gun has different chamber size. If I shoot the shells shot in the larger chamber gun in the smaller chambered gun the shells stick and do not eject. Never had a problem with the 12 ga guns.
