www.waxbullet.com Spitfire wax bullets, and as a matter of fact they make them for other revolver calibers too, not just the 45 LC..... cheap fun!!
Cool, I've also made waxers by hand for a long time, but never in .410. How are they in the judge?

Man, that is cool Custom! Looks like fun. Guess I just picked up a new time passer. Any tips or tricks for those wax bullets and 209 primers? I have never reloaded any ammo.

Oh I like them, first pistol I tried them in and I love them, they are so much cheap fun. Pretty accurate too actually, good for cheap practice.

It's easy, just pop in the 209 primers with your fingers, the wax bullets slide in with fingers and you just fire them and then pop out the old primers with fingers and insert new ones, put in a new wax bullet and go at it. It is really easy. Don't need powder as the 209's are powerful enough to propel the wax bullets alone. Don't need any reloading experience at all. After you fire a few dozen thru your revolver just run a brush down the barrel a couple times to remove any little bit of wax residue and continue, it is that easy. I found the site and tried them and fell in love, cheap easy fun and cheap easy practice, they are fairly accurate.

Plus right now since 209 primers are still available pretty good it is the best practice for now without real ammo and you can do it in your basement with proper ventilation or the garage with a door open, or just outside if you want it doesn't matter.

Oh and also test different primers to see which ones work best with your gun, some brands will backout and jam the revolver, I have found the Rio 209's to work best, but have also used other brands with no issues, guess it just depends on the gun.

Yeah, I was wondering about the primers. What do they generally run? Also, what is the noise like? I have neighbors, so this would be a major concern, I don't want deputies at my place every evening. Thanks for the info.

I generally use fiocchi or the rio's, under 30 bucks per thousand at ballistic products website. As far as noise they aren't bad at all, like a cap gun or those little fireracker snap caps for kids, and depending on the gun it will muffle it down some too, I've shot indoors in bad weather with no hearing protection and had no issues at all.

Rio's are temporarily out of stock at BPI right now, but they have the Fiocchi's in stock, 26.99 per thousand, I just checked their website.

I'm chomping at the bit to try this. I just picked up a S&W PC 327 TRR8 used for a great price. I'm wanting to try it with the Smith, the Judge is my dad's so I will have to try it too.

So basically I just buy 1000 #209 primers, 1000 .38spl modified cases, and 1000 wax bullets? What kind of target and backstop would you suggest? I want to be as safe as possible, I have neighbors side to side and in back.
