OK everyone, some of you may know that I have a .45 colt/410 barrel..
These little barrels are rifled and light.
So I got to thinking one day that I would like to get some 45/70 level of action out of this little barrel, but as you should know, the 45 colt is a .452 dia..and the 45/70 is a .458 dia.
So after doing some research, I found that 410 shooters where fireforming .444 Marlin brass for use as shotshells. So I got me some .444 brass and fireformed it this past Sunday. And now have working brass that can be loaded with .452 dia 240 JHP.
NOW UNDERSTAND THIS. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND CAN NOT PRACTICE SAFE RELOADING....DO NOT TRY THIS...
Before I had to leave the range. I had 3 working rounds, that all fired and hit a 2 foot target at 1oo yards.
Please give me some time to do a full write up on this as well as some group photos...
And yes it does still shoot 410 slugers, 45 colts, 454 casull and now the BIG BOY. .45 colt SUPER Mag, or maybe I should call it the .45 SUPER Long Colt.....hehehehe
