All I can find is 1 can 300MP. 26.00
4 pd keg 410. 108.00.
I have only used Winchester 296. None to be fount. I have 1 can 296 and 1 can 300MP. I was reading guys said the 410 brand was hard on hulls. But only loading hunting rounds. Hulls won't be shot alot. I only load for squirrels crows quail and few rabbits. Would I better off going with 296 and 300MP? But has hard has powder is getting to find. And some prices are crazy. I just sold a guy 10,000 small rifle primers for 30.00 per 1000. Would it work (410 brand) powder work for what I need without killing my hulls much? Price for 4 pds isn't bad locally. Can I used 410 brand for loads in 2.5 and 3 inch loads? I forgot to look in my Lyman shotgun book.

I use 410 powder for 3 inchers 11/16oz. Works well stacking nicely. Super X hulls don’t show much burning. After4 or 5 reloads started to see splitting of the hull from brass up. Some hull splits are 1/2 inch others 1-1/2 inch. Also loaded some Remington vintage 3 inchers. About the same number of reloads.

I load H110 in 2-1/2 AA and Remington hulls. Favorite reload is nitro 1/2oz. But the stack in 3 inchers is better with Alliant 410 powder.

Buy it if you find it. The price for 4 lb is high but not outrageous 180 is the going rate for 8lb keg at my local club.

Ballistic Products has a wealth of loads for the 3" 410. Lil Gun is used a lot, and can generate 1250 fps with 11/16 oz. It can push 5/8 oz to over 1350 fps. Their Smallbore manual is worth the money. They also have the correct wads for the 11/16 oz payload.

I just got home. Looked in my Lyman shotgun reloading handbook. There is several loads in it for 410 powder. I do have the small bore manual. I also have 4 bags MG 410 wads from Ballistic Products. But didn't see any loads for 410 powder. Didn't look very hard. I bought that manual because all the Winchester 296 loads.
