Using a Hornady 366 reloader for 28 gauge. For the longest time, I have had to deal with shot bridging when loading 8's of 7.5's. (I've tried mixing shot with graphite in a pistol case tumbler--didn't solve the problem.) Today, I removed the shot drop tube from my 20 gauge loader and tried it in my 28 loader with some #8's. No shot bridging.

Only change was to drop the case mouth expander slightly to enlarge the opening to fit
the larger drop tube.

Did you ever polish the ID of the shot drop tube with OOOO steel wool??

Yes, I did polish it. Problem is Hornady uses the same tube for .410 and 28.
Works fine for 9 shot, but not for anything larger.
