Rudybollo,
Do you have a lathe? If so, you can make a simple die pretty easily. If not, do you have a friend with one, or your gunsmith? If you don't have an arbor press, you can use a large vise to power the operation. Do your cases have a groove ahead of the rim, if not you may have to file or turn one, to avoid closing the primer pocket/ flash hole.

It'll give you the specs for both the chamber & the bore for the 28ga. See what your's is in comparison.

At around .626 base for 28 gauge modern plastic, that leaves around .040 of slop. Maybe the 28 gauge could be fireformed to expand that much.

No lathe. Do not have a local smith or friends with lathes. Will keep looking around for a solution. I have plenty of other projects I can complete.

Rudybollo,
I understand. I only had a vise, grinder and drill press, for many years. It just got to the point that I couldn't do what I wanted to do unless I acquired and learned to use better equipment. You are the only one that can decide what is most important to you.

Rudybollo,

I am only 20 miles from the WI, MN border straight west of Stillwater.

Not sure where you are located in WI but I load 28ga on a Mec Jr and we might be able to resize the 24 ga stuff in the sizer on the press. If that doesn't work I have a small (9") lathe and drill mill and we can probably conjure up something that would work.

Might be worth the drive depending how far you are into WI.

Oops! Guess I need to update my profile. I am in Baton Rouge, LA now. But thanks so much for the offer. Even though I did live in Manitowoc, WI, I was always up for a road trip.. But LA to MN is a bit of a stretch!

Rudybollo,

What! we are just up the river a bit from you! LOL Put the boat on the Mississippi, point it north and go. Ya can't miss us.....

Take care and good luck with your project. I am still wondering if a Mec Jr could be used to resize the cases with a little Imperial Sizing Wax...

I would use a Lee handloader if I could find one in 28 gauge. I have the requisite leather mallet and dowel rods!
