    Not likely to convert 30-40 to 303, got a 30-40 Krag that needs to be fed.

    Less likely to convert 303 to 30-40, I have a SMLE and a P14 to feed.


    But I have been known to make 6.5x53R's from 303's.

    As far as I know, 444 is the choice for brass 410.

    Never have done it. May try this winter, I shoot 410 on skeet and have a pile of 444 with no gun to shoot it in.

    I did make a handful of stoopid long 45 Colts using 444 brass just to try in a buddies T/C Contender. He has one of the 45 Colt/410 barrels.

    Couldn't see much difference in accuracy, but they chambered and fired.

    It was a covid house arrest project.

    It's easy to find, but you southern folks would have an interesting time getting it over the border.
    I still have four boxes of Herter's virgin .303 brass.
    This was made in Sweden by Norma or Metalverken, and has drilled, rather than punched flash holes, which some gurus say is superior.
    Alright. How about this. We get the feds to run a lime line on the border like they were marking a ball diamond. Make it a few hundred feet long. Then the Canadians stand on their side and pitch cans, bags or boxes of .303 brass across the line and the good citizens on this rush to clean up the mess. Then rotten evil nare-do-well Americans start to throw litter in the form of, what is it you guys need, across the line back at the Canadians. No one is importing or exporting. We're just keeping America and Canada beautiful.

    I was born in Wisconsin....my people who settled in Wisconsin came from Germany and Bohemia. They were brew misters, sausage makers and machinists. Go Packers!
