  1. Nice hope it goes well, I would love to hear what its like to use.
  2. Well im still on the reading and info gathering part at the moment trying to understand it all. so I don't plan on making any wild loads, will take a look at it more thanks.
  3. Hi all, me again. I am rather confused, I am looking on http://www.hodgdonreloading.com/data/shotgun and trying to work out whats what. step 1: 410 step 2: 3" [does it matter what 3" cart i use? I was just going to use some spent eley 410 extralong that i have.] step 3: lead [6,7,8 but not all at the same time] step 4: 11/16oz [19.5 grams] step 5: Hodgdon step 6: H110 Primer: Fed.209A or Win. 209 [can i use a different one eg: cheddite CX50?] Wad: Fed.410SC or WAA41 [if i cant get ether of them is there a way to know what else i can use?] Grs: 14.9 or 15 I fully understand how dangerous reloading can be even more so when you don't listen/read the info, hence why I am asking the above three questions and also the ones below. Wad length i want to use a fibre wad, does the length of the wad affect anything? eg: if i use a shorter fibre wad [5 mm to shorter] can i just cut the cart down by 5 mm instead of using overshot cards? Do all 410 carts use the same size primer? how do I know what will and wont fit? Any sites/forums that have good and reliable info for reloading that is relevant for us in the uk? Sorry if any of my questions are daft but i have never looked at this side of shooting before a couple of weeks ago. Thanks in advance
  4. Thanks will check the links out. Ye I found Folkestone and it looks to be a good site, also henrykrank seems ok. Thanks for the info.
  5. Hi all, just wondering where those who reload 410 cartridges got there reloading press/tools from? I cant see any where to get them with out ether modifying or spending extra to get a conversion kit for a press for a different calibre. Only thing I can find that comes as a 410 kit is the survival loader from America for £70 on ebay 😞 Powder, primers, wadding and shot I can get some what local.
  6. Nice tip thank you. This is why I like good forums, people are always willing to give pointers and help those with less knowledge
  7. Thanks, I take it we cant shoot that? ;D
  8. Nice, thank you for that photo aga I will have to have a drive around and see what I can find, if not I will just have to drop some letters into farms around here and hope for the best.
  9. Thanks for the info, was hoping to be able to spot some damage to see what it looks like so I could try to target farms better. Guess I will have to come up with a different plan.
  10. Thanks, is there something I should be looking out for? The link just takes me to the default bbc page sorry.
  11. ohh ok sorry about that, I understand and ye that's totally fair on your part.
  12. Thanks, are the other 2 not showing up? should be lower down the page. I will repost them if not.
  13. Hi all, I have never really targeted birds/rabbits that cause crop damage before but I am looking into it a bit more, I have done most of my shooting on hill farms, woods and rough ground. Never had much to do with crops and when I have done I cant say that I ever took note of what the damage actually looked like as I was with someone else who knew what they were doing in that respect. I was just wondering what crop damage looks like from an aerial view? as I was taking a look at farms near me. [ I know that photos like this are out of date by a few years, but I was just wondering what to look out for. I am more interested in rabbits than birds but info on both is welcome.] https://imgur.com/a/CWCX9mS I have 3 photos, please could someone try to explain what might have caused the lack of crops/ patchiness? 1 is a planting problem maybe??, 2 I am not sure about, and 3 looks like bad ground [this is me guessing] Thanks
  14. Hi nabbers, Thank you for replying. sadly the gun I was looking at with the broken stock has sold :[ I didn't jump on it fast enough.
  15. A keeper I used to beat for would mix a few different ones in each year, who ever shot one would put an extra £50 towards the beaters meal at the end of the season.
