Can anyone answer this QUESTION???
Can .416 gas checks be used safely on .410 lead bullets that are designed for gas checks?
Thank you,

I've seen that question answered by the affirmative a couple of times;

and here is an interesting post I just read on an other forum (the answer is provided by Veral Smith of LBT):

"What gas checks would I use on a .403" mould? I don't see any .40 cal available from Lyman or Hornady?"

Veral:" You can use Hornady .416 or 41 caliber gas checks just fine, but I believe Bullet Swaging Supply has their Gator brand in a 40 caliber diameter also. At any rate, I recommend use of Gator checks in all calibers which they have as they are of top quality, at least equal to Hornady, who makes RCBS and Lyman checks, to Hornacy specs. Perhaps the brightest aspect of Gator checks is the very attractive price without sacrificing quality."
