I passes on a nice little .410 Remmington 1100 in 3" and I'm still sorry I passes.

I think .410 for upland would be rockin' cool!

A limit of decoying teal with a .410 would be a great day also  :IBCOOL:

I'll find one... still looking.   :dunno:

i also have an old bolt 410 however, i have never shot it. grandpa hid all the mags before he passed (12 years ago) and we never found them

hey Rasbo, is yours an old stevens? I think mine is a model 56 or something.

i think i might take it out and try clays with it later today tho
catch it. kill it. cook it. eat it.
Forget the bear spray, use wasp killer. Concentrated delivery stream, 10X the product, and only $3.00 on sale.

I smoke two fish in the morning, I smoke two fish at night, I smoke two fish in de afternoon makes me feel alright

My guess is that in the real world you would wound more birds with a .410 because most people won't limit themselves to close range shots.

When I first got mine I used #71/2 shot had lots of grouse fly away after a solid hit. Finally I tryed #4 shot in it. Grouse DRT. Not near as many pellets but they hit much harder, give em a try you won't be disapointed.

.410 shooters are often a unique bunch.  They move to .410 because they know range and lead.  My guess, if you were going to generalize, is that you would probably see more wounded birds with 3-1/2" 12 gauge than with .410 due to the type of shooter that uses them rather than the amount of shot it puts up.

Just my  :twocents:

I shoot a .410 for grouse because i feel it holds a tighter pattern at grouse killing ranges ( 10-30 yds). I could see using it on Pheasants or Chukar if they were really tight holding birds and kept shots under 25-30 yds. I have shot clays with it and it really powders them when you hit em but you don't get the margin of error like you do with a 12.

I shoot the .410 for grouse, quail and doves, I have a MEC Jr to reload them. A buddy of mine loads #4 Bismuth for decoying ducks. I saw him drop a pair of mallards with his O/U last year.

My 9 year old harvested his first ducks this year with his single shot .410. It is hard to find steel shot for the .410

I got a New England Arms single shot in 410..... Great gun.... Has killed pheasant, grouse, quail, dove, coons, coyote, rats.... You name it..... Bought it when I was 21 from a friend of the family for $50 unfired!!!! I also have a TC Contender with a 410/45 Colt barrel.... Sometimes I just carry that around.... You only got one shot.... But when people see it they don't look twice!!!!   :chuckle:    I mostly shoot # 4 or 5 shot......

I have a Remington 1100 .410, bought it to start my son shooting, took it out trap shooting was able to hit 18 of 25 the first time, bought a second  stock and cut it down for him, he was a dead on trap shooter with it at 10 yrs old, loaded my own shells, still a fun gun to shoot. :tup:
