.410 semi auto loads

I have a Remington 100 .410 semi auto which is a great gun. I am also in the UK. The problem I have is that I need to use fibre wad ammo in some of the places I shoot. However ALL the bought fibre wad ammo I use in the .410 semi auto has the same results. Usually the primer comes out on firing and clogs the works up AND the spent cartridge remains in the breach often being ripped by the extractor claw instead of ejecting. The only cartridge I can get here in the UK to work satisfactorily is Fiocchi 19.5gramme plaswads. I have started reloading so that I can use the gun with fibre wads.
I was wondering if anyone in the USA was reloading .410 fibre wads for such a gun and if so what their "recipe" is in terms of shotshell, primer and powder.
I may be confined to using this gun on ranges where plaswads are OK.

Ripping the rim is indication of too much gas, usually caused by reaming of the gas port over-sized. A dirty chamber can make it worse.
