When I ordered my Mec 9000 in 410 I was really hoping that it would not have any of the problems that the other fellas had. Snapping, cracking, spilling of shot during operation. I was prepared to modify things until all was well.D L Marcum said:Jim,
Your going to find that the 410 is one gauge (bore) that needs resizing more than most gauges. If it's purchased hulls or hulls shot in another gun, they are probably gonna need resizing, and if steel case heads, they need it every time.
Therefore the 650 won't get the job done without a Supersizer to go with it. The best of all worlds in my experienced opinion is the Grabber, when loading the 410.
If you got em, certainly use them up, just do not buy them new for hulls. Remember that they will use a different wad than the one required for the AAHS hull. Very likely the loader will require different adjustments of the crimp systemJimMc42 said:Thanks, Don for the tip.
I do have a questions r.e. the problem with the crimp gnarling up. Does this cause the press to have a problem, such as the case getting jammed in the die? Spilled shot? Just curious what type of problem it causes.
I'm asking because I have several hundred Remington cases - a couple of hundred STS and the rest the old standard hulls - they are heavy walled. Some of the STS look burned after only three reloads.
Thanks, I will. I did measure the wall thickness of the STS down near the bottom and there is more taper than the AAHS, and that was my concern.D L Marcum said:Curly,
Actually the Claybuster HS 410 wad works pretty well in Remington cases, both the Sp and STS cases. Give them a try. I think you will like them. Only case they don't work well in is the AA CF cases.
