View Full Version : .410 reloading data needed
21-06-2008, 08:58 PM
Just been given a tub of Hodgdon h110 some golandi mini wads and a container of cartridge bases that need the primers removing.
I would like someone to confirm a recipe for reloading these into 2 1/2" 14gram carts and 3" 19gram carts. I am having a job finding data relating to these specific wads and the used Eley and fiocchi cases that I have.
I gather that 15 grains of H110 is the correct powder load for both instances and would appreciate someone more knowledgable to confirm this.
Thanks in advance :)

Still waiting for some help :)
Not Sure Of This But Why Not Take One Two Bits And Weigh The Powder And The Shot??????????? But Remember That Poweder Has Diffrent Burn Speeds. Putting Two Much Shot Could Case The Gun Two Go Bang The Wrong Way!!!!!!!!!be Carefull!!!!!

I doubt that anyone can give you exact data for the particular combination of components that you have acquired.
But if you go to http://data.hodgdon.com/shotshell_load.asp you can examine every load that they have for H110 in .410 and pretty soon get a feel for the range of suitable loads. Start towards the low end and see how you get on.
Its not really an exact science, unless you insist on only using published loads that have been pressure checked by a proof house, requiring an exact combination of primer, case, wad, shot cup, shot etc. In which case you will probably have to first choose the recipe then buy the components.
Otherwise you could contact http://www.claygame.freeuk.com/ and see if they have a suitable recipe on their (paid for) data CD. Once you have exhausted your stock of components you may well be going to them for more supplies anyway.

Not sure that this will help, but 14.5 grain H110 with fibre wad and 9/16 oz of 7 in brass case seem to work well. If you only have plastic cases you are better off using 3" so you can roll top them, but you want to start your load at 12.5 with half oz, and build up. Because the plastic can maintain a greater biuld up of pressure the powder seems to burn better in plastic so needs less than brass.I have found that the mix for brass is good enough without the need to reform the brass if your using the same gun.
The down side to brass, is primers. As from April last year you need a fac to get them.
