I began to find the large #6 shot hanging up in the tube of my 600 Jr. 28ga. loader, something I never experienced before, having loaded only 12 & 20 ga. for years in a Texan FW. I was not even aware there was a name for it, "bridging" until recently. I thought the only way to resolve "bridging" was to tap the handle a few times after each shot drop, until recently I read somewhere that simply raising the wad ram/feed tube up about half way off the bottom of the wad, but still inside the hull, let's the shot charge fall freely into the wad without backing up and therefore "bridging". Loaded a couple boxes of 1oz. #6's today, and only had a bridging occur when I forgot to raise the tube. Just a change of technique seems to do the trick.
Sometimes the simple solutions are the hardest to figure out.

Since you joined this honorable club 2 days before I did, and you have 1200 or more posts, I figured I'd better get moving!
