I loaded a few of my new magtec 410 cases.
I used 13.7 grs or 296 then I took a normal 410 winchester dad and cut off the shot cup off and filled the case with 7/8 oz or #8 shot then used a home made over shot card made from a paper milk carton. the load did not fill the case all the way up so I just pushed the wad down to the shot and it stayed in place good. at 30 yards the pattern was good enough to cover an 8" paper plate. this should work great for squirrels and rabbits.
recoil was about the same as with normal 3" 410 shells.

the shot came from some old 12 ga club loads I had sitting on my shelf they were like $2.00 a box. I just cut them open and used the shot tossed the powder in my trash powder can and wads in the trash I will use the 209 primer for my muzzle loaders. this is a cheap way of getting shot as I do not shoot the 410 enough to buy a full 25 lb bag.

Magtech

My pet load for 410 Magtech shells =

8.9 Grains Herco
1/8 thick paper board overpowder card
1/2 oz 7.5 shot
1/8 thick paper overshot card
clear fingernail polish as glue and sealant
I do not worry about shot height or crimping Shells should last almost
forever, as this feels like a average to slight reduced load

works great for Me as always THIS is MY LOad I use for MY GUN
USE in Yours at Your own Risk

410 wad sealer

I have read of using something called water glass or sodium silicate to seal and retain the over shot wad .Anyone know where this might be found?I know it was also used to seal eggs on long sea voyages.

Magtech 410 Brass hulls

SeTex Jeff,

I'm looking at these to use in an old Stevens 311 and a Stevens 940. Will the large pistol primers cause me any problems (too hard) ?

Bob Allen - water glass used to be available at the drug stores like Walgreen's.

Has anyone ever used PB powder for the 410 ?

Thank y'all,

Jumbeaux

410 Magtech

I really do not know about the 410. I shoot magtech brass reloads in a 311 stevens sxs that is at least 40 years old never had a misfire in about 100 shells.

The gun I shoot the 410 brass reloads in is a new .410 NEF Tamer
