That depends on what you use for a wad. The wrong one could be unsafe and it could end up being undependable.

Take a Claybuster wad, cut off the petals with scissors and use that and it should work well. That's one of the ways I make spreader loads.

If you need more column height, cut some wads out of a felt hat or cardboard or Styrofoam and place them on top of the cut off Claybuster and under the shot. Their weight and mass is negligible as far as pressure goes.

Hey Flash, look what I found. http://wolfhillammo....-0000-buck.aspx

It seem that it has "all been done before."

Now I need to make them.

Wow, $2.00/each. You can probably make 20 of them for the price of one shell.

Incidentally, the .410 PDX stuff Winchester makes for the Judge has great hulls if you can find some. I'm getting around 10~12 reloads each with them.

Well, there's Bass Pro, Cabela's, Midway USA and Sportsmans Guide that each carry it from time to time.

No, that's loaded ammunition. The only place I've found for the once fired hulls is a good friend who has a S&W Governor and fires them from time to time, then gives me the empties. It's too bad because I'd buy empties anytime for a decent price.

I agree. They are good quality hulls. I will keep my eyes open at the local ranges.
Thank you again for all the help. I take this seriously and have a tendency to over think things. I value my safety and appreciate you being my sounding board.

Anyone who doesn't take reloading seriously shouldn't get involved in it. There's no room whatsoever for people who don't pay attention to what they're doing and check everything.

On another note, we should take future chats to the reloading forum as this is intended to be primarily for introductions.

Rgr, this introductory has run on. I will post further questions there. By the way BPI had load data for what I want to do. I am pretty sure I am in safe waters again. Thanks again.
