  1. Can you get a reloader for 10 gauge 3.5" shells?

    I do not know how many shells you may want to load, but several years ago, I purchased a lee hand loader for my 10ga to load 3 1/2" magnums and it works fine.

    i've been loading 10 gauge 3.5" shells for some time now, since 1991. i've been using a MEC sizemaster and have not had any problems what so ever with it. it comes with auto primer feed and all.

    Does anyone know of a loading block/tray for 10ga shells? I need something to hold the brass for .600 Nitro Express (.805" rim diameter) while reloading?

    Also, need a plastic ammo box (holds 10-20 rd) for .50 BMG? I already have one that holds 50 rds of .50 BMG.

    Loading blocks are fairly easy. Get a chunk if wood and drill evenly spaced holes the diameter you need.

    .600 Nitro loading block

    Jerry,
    Using wood laying around in my garage, I already drew the plans for a 14-rd wood block using two 2x4's glued and screwed side-by-side. The 2x4's will give me 1" depth (for case stability) with it's 1-1/2" thickness.
    Know where I can get the ammo boxes?

    Posness Warren also makes a 10ga press. I've never loaded 10ga, buy I've used there loader for other guages, and man they make a beutiful shell.
     
  10. Most companies, Hornady, RCBS, MEC, PW, Dillon, and Spolar I believe make a 10 ga reloader. Dont buy none of that !!!!! MEC stuff. But if you have too...
