Hi from Somerset - I am a Section 5 dealer and am looking to buy .410 pistols, either single barrel or double barrels, as long as the guns are in good condition. I have tried all my local dealers without success.

Many thanks

Malcolm at The Vale Firearms

Some years ago, I contacted fourten.org.uk and told of a project I was contemplating......
......now I am active on it and it is progressing at a pace!

I am converting a 'retired' LeeLoadAll to a rudimentary but very effective .410 press!
If someone can tell me how to post pics, I will do it.
Regards,
Alan, aged 67. (Ammunition Technician)

I have a .410 it has italian proof marks for 12mm x 70mm. I have never seen 410 ammo in 70mm

Admin reply: Oops. I misread your question. I have never seen 2 3/4 inch .410s, but a few years back, a couple of big name makers used shorter than average 3 inch cases. Those I measured were nearer 2 7/8 inches. Also, the aluminum shells used in the USAF M-6 survival gun were 2.71 inches long, but loaded with 3/4 ounces of #6 shot. I recommend measuring your chamber to determine its actual length.

Greetings!

I have a very early Stevens Single Shot Shotgun, .410/12mm chamber.
Does anyone have reloading data (U.S. Powders) for these 2" shells?

Thanks and Be Well!

Admin reply: There is a little information under the "ALOOF, etc." button on the main page. That will take you to a menu of ALOOF articles. About midway down the page you will see "Pre-Historic 410s, The .44 shot Cartridges" plus "Shooting the .44 Shotgun."

There also is some information at http://www.fourten.org.uk/light.html

The CCI .44 shotshells will work and I have used a few in a good modern .410 shotgun. They are loaded to pressures that are compatible with the Stevens PROVIDED it is in a condition to be safe with factory two inch shells. However, if you try this, you must assume the risk of any harm, as I have not seen your gun and cannot judge its condition. You also can purchase just the shot capsules for reloading.

A few years ago there was a US importer named Accardi Importers, but I just looked for his website and it has disappeared. By googling "accardi importers," I found a link to Cheaper than Dirt which showed an address and phone number,

On EBay I seen for sale a (Union Metallic Cartridge Co Bridgeport Conn 12 A) and it said it was from 1886 is that possible it is all brass did anybody see this, it was just posted. please let me know what you think thank you.

Admin reply: 1867 - In an effort to diversify their holdings, Schuyler, Hartley & Graham purchased two small New England cartridge companies. These companies were later closed, and the equipment moved to a new site in Bridgeport, Connecticut. On August 9, 1867, the Union Metallic Cartridge Company was incorporated. It was particularly noted for its development of metallic cartridges. It and its successor company subsequently developed the first paper shotshells successfully manufactured in the United States, the first primer adapted to smokeless powder; the first battery cup for best quality paper shotshells; the first cartridges for automatic pistols; the first standard high-power smokeless cartridges for big game autoloading rifles; the first .410 bore gauge shotshell in the United States; the first nickeled primer; the first oil-proof automatic pistol cartridges; and the first completely wetproof loaded shells, including top wad, crimp and body.
See: http://www.remington.com/pages/our-company/company-history.aspx

So, Is it possible? Yes. Is that case from 1886? No idea. MW

Read your nice article on the H & R .410 Handygun. If I may offer a constuctive criticism of your references to U.S. federal gun laws. The National Firearms Act (gangster weapons including the Handygun) was enacted in 1938, not 1934. The first U.S. firearms law, the Federal Firearms Act, was enacted in 1934. I taught these laws to federal agents for many years.

Respectfully submitted.

Greetings All,
I have long been a fan of the .410 and Fourten.org. I have been reloading many different .410 loads for some years and now find that I have a few (Hundred) of the 2 1/2" Winchester AA Compression Formed cases, (All Once Fired - Guaranteed) available to other reloaders. I will sell them in batches of 100 unprimed at a cost of £25 plus postage. These are the best for 1/2 oz skeet and sporting reloads, and reload many many times, multiple batches can be accomodated get them before they are gone - first come first served. Reloading data is not supplied - do so at your own risk!!

I have a 410 break open 410 bore single shot called the protector (Italian?). Has engraving and all wood with a pistol grip (Wood) and no stock and the web comes up with nothing.

Hope someone could chime in with some info. Maybe imported by Beretta, Thanks
