Anyone have any favorite loads for a .410?
I just got a new (to me) Mec 9000, I wasn't real happy with the ball powders function in my sizemaster. Is LIL-GIN a ball powder? I want to try something else.

Ball powders rule in the 410. Get a PC plastic powder baffle. I like Accurate #9 in the 410 with AA hulls, H110 with Remmy hulls. #9 is like talcum powder, and the PC baffle keeps it in the press, not on the press.

13.5 gr Accurate #9 or Accurate #4100, AA HS hull, WW primer, WAA41HS wad, 229 or so gr Magnum shot.

17.5 gr H110, Remmy hull, WW primer, WAA41HS wad, same amount of shot.

Chuck, I like 13-13.5 of Alliant 410 powder, Win. 209,or Fiocci 209, primer, and either rem. wad, or claybuster wad, and 1/2 oz. of #9 shot. Works great at skeet, and sporting.... Randy

If you try the new Alliant 300 MP powder you will never look back. Lower pressures and faster loads with no downsides. Ron

I used little gun for years and started keeping up with life of hulls. Was only getting five or six at most. Switched to 110 and 296 and back to getting nine or ten loads. The very newest 410 AA HS hulls are lasting good if the brass doesn't split. I've had as many as five per box of brand new hulls splitting. I use only AAHS hulls with Cheddite primes, claybuster wads with 15.3 grains of 296(I think as I am not at my shop to check.) As I mentioned, Lilgun burns the hulls up sometimes burning through the side of the hull. Jackie B.

Come on, Doug. Don't be a buzzkill. LOL

The little fellow will not smoke many birds, but it will break them.

The 410 and 28 limit one to close shots in the field, but are a joy to carry and to shoot.

The 3" 410 is a witch to load, and the load I like in the 2 1/2" hull must be loaded on a single stage press. It nearly fills the case, and the progressive press spills shot.

Winchester HS Hull with 15.3 grs. of Hodgdon H110 and a Remington SP-410 wad and a Cheddite primer. This will duplicate the factory 1200 fps load.

You need the brass washer under the rubber seal with a spring loaded powder baffle to keep the fine ball powder from leaking.

Here is what you need if you shoot more than 5000 .410's per year!

Yes, Chuck Check out the Win. AA hull, with Win. primer Win. 296 powder (or hodgdon Hll0 is the same), Clone Win. AA wad, l/2 oz. or hard shot and your good to go. Verify all your powder drops and get the data yourself off Hodgdon.com website. Nice low pressures with this powder give excellent hull life. You will need a good new rubber washer not one that is 10-20 years old and hard as a rock, and the brass washer as well. If your rubber washer is plyable and brass washer installed correctly there are no powder leaks with these two powders. Otherwise you will have powder leaks with all ball powders. Good Luck and break em all Jeff
