    It's on my "Do List" to use these to make some 44 Rem Mag shotshell cases for the revolvers here; After that I may look into trying them for 41 Mag shotshells, but not really looked at that yet, & 30-30 may be a better starting place. First I owe someone some 45 ACP shotshells, working on that first.

    I used some 410 AA Jules cut down to make 45 colt shot shells.

    GONRA's pretty sure there are interesting Olde Black Powder Cartridges
    that use these Rimmed Case Head Diameters.
    Haftakeep pressures LOOOOW 'cause of "relatively weak shot shell head construction".

    Hmmm, JSH, you mean plastic hulls for 45 Colt shot shells then?

    I go the opposite by using 444 Marlin brass to create shotshells for the .410 at 2 1/2" length. They work nicely.

    I use .303 British brass to create shotshells for my snake loads. Not quite 2 1/2" but allow 1/2 oz loading.

    To All,

    There are at least two old-school (pre-WWI) rifle cartridges that were manufactured from brass .410 shells. - One was made from 2.5" cases & the other from 3" cases.

    Both were considered in pre-WWII Europe to be "fully suitable" for taking wild boar & Red Deer at "woods ranges", when fired from combination long-arms of various sorts.
    (I'd like to find one of the hammer Cape Guns with the rifle in the 10.3x65mm rifle caliber & the other barrel in 16 or 20 gauge. - I would guess that such a Cape Gun would be at least equal to the .444 Marlin or better in killing power.)

    yours, tex
