For the fall

Ahh.... I can almost feel the hunting days approaching !

So, some things I'd like to conflab on for the fall season :

1. .410 loading. I finally got a proper small bore for squirrel and rabbit this year. (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?p=8983572#post8983572) I'm wondering what way I should go for reloading .410 : A mec is good...but its $250, and I can't imagine needing to reload more than 50-100 of these per year. Tops. Anyone ever used one of these (http://zoned.fortunecity.ws/410.html) before?

2. 12 ga for goose. I'm not going to be out ranged again this year. I got me one of those fancy choke tubes that help keep your string all short and together, and I'm going with a mix of T shot and BB, and just straight T this year. Here is where I need some hull and wad help :

Using BPI's "Lightning steel" manual, I'm trying to put the components together for load #36 : it uses TUWSBL28 wads, and rio target blue hulls. On BPI's website, when I search for these wads, it comes up with these (http://www.ballisticproducts.com/Multi-Metal-12ga-2-3_4-preslit-wad-100_bag/productinfo/3221275/)... anyone know if this is the right one ? I'm having trouble locating this exact numbered wad.

I'm also wondering if the rio target blue hull is comparable to this one (http://www.ballisticproducts.com/Rio-12ga-2-3_4-new_primed-12mm-brass-100_bag/productinfo/RIO127012/) as I'd rather not confuse my target loads with my spendy steel loads.

Any of the ole smooth bore loaders out there, I could use your help !

Just got a new Natchez catalog in the mail today and saw they have the old Lee hand loaders, I didn't know Lee still made them. I had one as a kid for my .410, wonder what happened to it? Anyway, I have a MEC .410 loader that is great, you save about 8 bucks a box over factory in .410. I'm not too far south of the border, stop by and we can refill yer .410 hulls in an afternoon.....

Watch Craig List. I picked up a really nice condition 600 jr. along with 500 AA hulls, and 500 wads for $35 a year or so ago. I didn't even have a .410 at the time.:D
