Re: my tailgate shotshell loading clip

Thats what I figured I am trying to find a classic lee loader for the 410 so I can still crimp them, but they are hard to come buy. I would like to make some hot loads for hare and little further distance on rabbits. Get some copper plated shot, TXC, or hevi shot and load it up with the new alliant 410 or Hodgon Lil Guy powder.

Re: my tailgate shotshell loading clip

good luck with that,personally i think its a waste of time trying to improve on a 410,to much powder(hot load)makes for a worse pattern,to much shot and it will just scatter the whole wadcup of all the shot isnt contained within the wadcup.if it was a smoothbore ya could improve
i am shooting copper plated 5 shot right now and the difference between 5 and 6 may be 7 or 8 more pellets.not much to improve on other than practice shooting.i bet i have shot 60 shells since two saturdays ago.
good luck but shotshells are about at their peak performance with factory loads jmo

You don't need anything special for hare, heck you can catch them by the back feet if you're fast enough.

Save your money, and forget the copper plated shot.......I have noticed that it offers no real advantage over good hard magnum shot....

Re: my tailgate shotshell loading clip

I am going to take the factory Winchester, Remington, and Federal 3" and then about 5 or 6 different handloads this spring and will see what the performance difference. I have only ever loaded all my rifle and pistol shells in the past. I have never loaded for a shotgun. I guess I shall see if it makes that big of a difference. I am guessing with the rifled barrel I am going to see a little change but not much. I am going to try a few solid shot cups and some other variations also to see if it helps or hurts with the rifle barrels.
