    Try that 12 ga with 1 1/4 oz of #9. Nothing gets through that pattern. It even works pretty good on Geese. You just shoot for there neck. I only used the 410 for a couple of years and then Dad gave me an old M10 Rem pump in 12 ga full. What a difference that made.
    I may do just that, I'll be in AZ during dove season even.

      Sometimes you can still pick up .410 Lee loaders for around ten bucks if you want to get fancy.

        Count yourself very lucky if you can find a Lee Loader 410 for $10...they are so scarce in 410 nowadays that prices on Ebay for a complete original set now hover around $75. Sometimes more, but for that kind of money one might just as well spring for a Mec 600 Jr press and be done with it, IMO. I had a Mec 600 setup for 410 a few years ago, but I found reloading the 410 was not exactly an easy chore...talk about a finicky hull! Kept my Mec 600 for 12ga though, and I'm happy with it...it works good.

            No I haven't been able to find a place or person to shoot clays with, and I usually don't let too many get away once I get warmed up. I still have a box of clays just waiting to be smashed. I don't know what your schedule is, and my weekends are weird, but we should work out a time to do some shooting. This weekend I have plans already made for Easter Sunday, but I have Monday and Tuesday free. Otherwise maybe next Sunday afternoon.

                These are the tools that I use to reload 410. CPVC 1/2 (15mm) to support the case while reloading and a piece of 3/8 dowel for a ram. The 7/16 socket keeps the crimp end from swelling out. The brass and steel pieces I got from a friend that can’t remember where he got them from.
                I know this is an old thread but I ran across it looking for 410 hand loading.

                  The bottom photo is my setup to make straight wall cases. I use a razor knife to do the trimming.
