Well you both could figure it out, its the number of lead balls .410" in diameter it takes to equal one pound.

Be happy to Steve. All I need to do that is a source of pure lead balls of .410" diameter. Do you know of a source? I can't speak for others, but I don't have the equipment to make any myself. :D

I like my MEC progressives. This site is a great resource for any setup issues you run into as well. I think they are built to a quality/serviceability that is perfect for what they do.

I'm comfortable with that number being rounded to 68. 8)

I'm guessing it will be a while before the OP comes back here looking for advice on which reloader to get to load buckshot.

FYI - his last sign-in here was on May 23, 2020. That was 2 days before I made my first post. We're all just talking to each other it would seem. :lol:

Happens more than you might suspect. There are a bunch of hit and run post authors.

Location: Dutchess County, NY -
One factor that nobody has brought up is one's home state location. I living in the socialist state of New York and therefore can not have shells mailed to me. Great prices of $3.50 - $5.00 per box is meaningless to me. Same with buying locally, I live in the part of New York state that isn't the gun-less swamp, but still have the problem of finding something other than Walmart promo loads. If Walmart stops selling shells then I'll be forced to go to a robber baron LGS and pay $50 - $75 a flat for off brand Euro shell brand shells and that's when there's no shortage of shells and ammo going on. So far the morons in our capital city haven't figured out that I can still legally order hulls, wads, primers, shot and powder and roll my own, so to speak. So I have stocked up with all of the above. I also have been able to take home many hundreds of the once fired Gun Club hulls left by club members that still buy them at any price. But that is slowly changing as prices rise and more Euro shells are now the norm. I'm not a high volume shooter these days, my Sizemasters work fine for me, and my days of shooting appear to be nearly over with a new pacemaker planted into my left shoulder just about where my SG butt (yes, I'm a lefty) also likes to reside. But for others in the same out of the way location situation the fact is that reloading, even target loads, let alone a specialty buck shot load is worth it. I live in a shotgun only deer hunting county and I've bought buckshot boxes of 5 and had to travel 25 miles to find them at a reasonable price and hope they were in stock. I remember a friend of mine trying to find goose loads when he was invited to shoot down on Long Island and he spent days (weeks?) searching for anything to shoot.
