    .410 reloading with domestic tools

    I've had this itch for a few years now, and its on my bucket list, that is, to reload .410 with simple tools.
    There's lots of stuff on it on youtube, so I thought I'd give it a go:



    Decap - 14mm socket and 5mm galv nail gound flat





    Reprime - Hex socket from electric driver






    Mini digital scales 2.99 off that auction site.



    Kitchen funnel



    Order of charge




    Shot



    Sealing the overshot card






    It wasn't hard to do, however I did research a lot on the net to ensure safe practice.
    I'd like to get some .303 cases and fire form them parallel and do a brass load.
    Quite chuffed, however I don't even have a .410 in my cabinet!

    Good post.
    Pretty basic but it all works, much the same as the proper kit.

    Ehh, how you gonna fireform .303 cases without a .410 ?

    I have been looking for a small gauge folder for months (20 gauge or under) going to Westcountry game fair on this weekend see whats there .
    a gun is just a tool how its used is dependant on the person behind the trigger .
    This is why constant restrictions on legal users will have no effect on the unlawfull use of guns or knives !

    What's the alternative way to hold the shell base while doing the roll crimp with a pillar drill?
