Can some one point me in the right direction to load 28 ga steel target loads? I used to load 12 ga years ago in a MEC but sold it a while back and there doesn't seem to be any progressive reloaders for 28 ga in steel 5/8oz loads on the market. Am I missing something obvious?

Hi,

Do you know someone with a lathe? It seems 7/8oz is as light as they go. You would need to either make a custom bar from scratch, turn and fit a reducer sleeve, or buy a UCB. The UCB would be the easiest solution. But not everyone likes them. They are really a YMMV tool, (I like mine for the 28ga. Lots of loads the standard bars can't do).

You can use a regular Lead Bar to load steel target loads. You just have to figure out which lead bar would drop 5/8 oz of steel.
A 7/8 oz or 1 oz Lead Bar would put you close. Best to use a bar with the Rubber Dogbone.
It`s hard to say for sure without trying it out.
You could try a Universal as Dalee has suggested , but you might have shot bridging problems with the Universal bar depending on shot quality. Once again , hard to say for sure.
