Default 10 ga.

Not sure how many shot shell reloaders are on here but anyway. I am trying to start reloading for my 10 ga. so I bought a manual (mighty 10) and followed one of the loads and when I was done the shot column was about 1/8" to low for a good crimp. Not sure if this normal but what is the best way to fix this? filler wad in the bottom of shot cup(it is a sp 10 wad)? spacer below the shot cup?Or thicker overshot card?
Thanks in advance for any feedback

I've generally inserted a couple 20 ga over shot card wads,
under the shot in the 10 ga shot cup
Ive used a mec reloader and shoot an ithaca 10 ga

Thanks for the response! The press I have is a older MEC of some kind. It has like a collet that sizes the brass but seems to work okay. I will have to order some filler wads and try that. Thanks again

Want to try something really neat. I used to load for my Mag 10 and also for 12 ga. I wanted to practice for waterfowl one year so I decided to load a couple boxes of #8 shot in my 10 ga 3 1/2' hulls and take it dove hunting. When I shot those loads it looked like a swarm of gnats heading towards the target!

I have thought about doing that also
