I have just purchased my first .410, a new and very pretty Browning 525. I have only fired 50 rounds through it an am horrified by the excessive amount of fouling just after the forcing cones from plastic residue, I estimate I would have to shoot thousands of rounds of 12 bore without cleaning to get the same effect. I was using Gamebore cartridges (both 2 1/2 and 3 inch plastic wad). Is this normal for a .410 ?

Thought your readers would like to know about the finest long-life 410 3 inch shell I have found.
I am using 9.3x74R Hornady brass,large pistol primers, 1.0cc unique and 7/8 ounce #6 lead shot.
Of course you have to fireform the brass by loading with cream of wheat or flax seed, but it makes a durable 410 shell that will hold lots of shot---at your own risk of course.
I use .430 1/8 inch nitro card over the powder, then a remington 1/2 ounce wad, shot, .450 overshot card and wax or glue on top. Have fun!

Admin reply: One of my guns is opened up to cylinder and its great on close targets. It just depends on what you want to do with it

Iv been looking at a Norica 3 shot bolt action in my local gun shop, it had a tag on it saying FAC
I asked the owner and he said it has a detachable mag....
I asked how do you detach it?,
he said stock off and remove some set screws!!!
I was not convinced that equated to a detachable mag so i spoke to my local FLO who comfirms it is section 1 unless the mag is welded in place Just a word of warning to the lads that own one, i doubt wether an average bobby would spot it but technically some may be held on an SGC and be Sect 1.
Be aware.

Hi,
Does anyone out there have a copy of the Lyman 44th edition (1967)? If so we would be very grateful if you could scan the pages with the reloading info for .410 cast slugs and send the images to us here at the .410 website.
  
we have specific enquiries about this data and would like to make this information available to a wider audience.
Cheers, Phil (website admin)

Admin reply: Copy received, Many thanks Richard P.
Phil.

My friend shoots a fully modded Baikal and I shoot a modded Pedretti.
After a little debate on a website about the best cartridges to use in a moderated .410 me and a friend of mine did a little testing,
not very scientific but here is what we found

2" 9 gram Eley fibre wads: very loud, not very effective ( loud because the shot is so light its not slowed down enough and is supersonic when it leaves the barrel, and not effective because the pattern fails at anything beyond 10 yrds)

2" 9 gram gamebore plaswads: even louder than Eley as above, very close range.

2 1/2" 12.5gram Eley: quieter than 2" and kill much better, also a bit cheaper than 3".

Lyalvale 2 1/2" 14grams plaswads: louder than the Eley but kill just aswell, pattern slightly better!

Fiocchi 3" 19 grams plaswads, kill very well, Slightly louder than Eley's 3"ers .

Eley 3" 18grams fibres subs and and normal, seem the same to me??.

I feel that the pedretti although no longer converted by Hushpower, is the best moderated .410 available.
Its short and handles well and the noise reduction is suberb.
The only two downsides are:
The silencer is cold to hold as there is no wooden forend and due to the vents begining closer to the breech on the barrel the muzzle velocity is lower on the Pedretti than on the Baikal, but in reality the difference is not really an issue.
I have tried a the 9" moderater on a Baikal and also owned a fully moderated Baikal and although i prefer the workhorse Baikal guns themselves to Pedrettis i don't feel they lend themselves particulary to being moderated due to the overall length increase.
I don't understant why someone does not start moderating a single barrel Investarms as these are folders and dont need a forend so the moderater can fit further back giving a far better balanced gun.

Like i said these are just my thoughts on the matter after shooting lots of rabbits, squirrels, pigeons and magpies with a fully moderated Pedretti gun.
All the best Daveo
