  1. Graham. Have 12 bore parts from a Bair, taken over by Pacific or hornaday ?and am sure interchangeable. can check as have a 266. reg. john
  2. I reload spreader wads for full choke at close range, gives a sleet pattern when you require it. cut the barrel down years ago for same reason,
  3. Just picked one up in 177. it shoots spot on now I have removed the Titan spring for a standard one.
  4. Have a good Pacific 155 in 12 guage 70mm. with a full410 conversion kit for 65 and 76 mm loads. £100 . John. (Near Doncaster)
  5. For anyone going the add on route, which I have, after trying numerous scopes the best so far is a 3x9x40 Stoeger. its ginclear, even my ball bearings are visible at 25 yards, I know it isn't side parralex but it isn't dear iether, £55 but mine was second hand. now need another one for the HMR17.
  6. Half ounce clay loads 2.5 chambers but shot a lot of 5/8 loads in 3 inch with 12 grain. still loading at this, still here This recipe was given to me when I bought the Pacific 266 set up for these loads and had been tested. John
  7. 10 grain of Blue dot , good 410 powder been useing this for 30 years .
  8. Shot size mainly depends on size of hole in dripper, but can also alter bigger or smaller slightly with weight of lead above or below dripper. also temperature can alter it slightly. its a learning curve but well worth the effort if you are reloading a fair amount.
  9. Have made shot with more deviices over the years, some good some bad and some .awfull. using a 150 volt 2 shotdropper from New Zealand borrowed from a friend. its dropping good 5/6 shot but changing the drippers to 7.5 for clays. lead is a mix of sheet and old piping, melted and cleaned and into ingots courtesy of wife's baking trays. Will have go at getting some photos up after tomorrow.
  10. Have started to drop lead shot again. have dropped it for 50 years into Diesle on top of water, then had to go thru the cleaning process which was a pain. have been dropping into fabric liquid, with decent results and easy to wash of. just tried a run with cheap anti freeze and well pleased, it rinses of fine, shot good anough for game or clays . lead sources aren't as good as they used to be but it's keeping me in front on reloading costs. now where's the wife's colander Just need to siv it thru.
  11. No. 209 are not Magnum, just a standard type used in lots of clay/game cartridges. if yours are 209 fine. John
  12. I have a lot of black powder cartridge cases, they have 209 primers fitted so what's good for the factory should be ok.enjoy. John
  13. Found a jar with a load of Sten gun heads in,they havnt been fired so either never loaded or dismantled? perhaps a tad heavy but certainly carry a punch,used to dig the 25 yard range out in Germany in 53 and they accounted for a large number of rabbits (pre mixie days) now in the truck ready for disposal via theraband gold
  14. Have a variety of shop bought hung up in garage, my shooter is home made, strag cut out of plywood and powered by double theraband gold with a nice soft pouch. a bag of 100 marbles from pound land for practice and 9mm lead ball for meat, works a treat
  15. Yes, did that as well, but used to get 1000s of ball. Bearings from the blacksmiths at the pit, the ones out of belt rollers, they used to repair them then, about. 1/8 inch so carried well, but covered in grease so had to clean them as best we could.happy days
