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

You're son shot a Harli his first year?! Lucky dog!

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:

Congrats on your Graduation JBar.  I shoot a 410 contender and have killed a grouse with it and I like to shoot my winchester 94/410 at the skeet field now and then.  Fun gun and I get some raised eyebrows when I walk to the station with my model 94.

I use a .410 Stoeger double S/S with double triggers and full set chokes. It's a killer, and I'm counting down the days to Sept. 1.
Hopefully, more and BIGGER grouse this fall!

Not so fast  >:(

I'm still looking for the right .410 and then a season to take a hero shot of something before I get back in the argument.   :chuckle: :chuckle:

Nice pic though   :tup:

I like the Savage model 24. I like the .410 but ended up going with the 20 just because of the ammo... There are still lots of 22lr .410 O/U out there and are a great gun for grouse/rabbit.  I think you do have to have a special mindset to have a .410 You have to WANT a less powered shell that costs more than the "standard" 20g... If your into reloading then you can likely justify the cost better than most and have the appreciation of that very cool shell.  :twocents:

I'll keep this going too! You're right Dave that is a small grouse in your picture!  :chuckle:
I was actually looking at a Tristar .410 O/U today, I'll have to do some research on this one but it's nice for the $$ also shoulders and points really well.

The 20 gauge is perfect for grouse. With the 410 you're giving up a lot of range. I have killed blue grouse with a 410, and I have also shot them, knocked them down, just to have them get up and run or fly away.

:yeah:
or the 28 gauge

from a ballistic /pattern standpoint, its amazing the .410 kills as many birds as it does. but just because you can kill a bird with it may not mean you should. I want something with a more forgiving pattern to hunt wild birds with.

:yeah:

However, I tend to have my H&R single shot .12 gauge in the truck usually. I think about getting a .410 sometimes but would rather spend the money on something else.

If they made a side by side shotgun/rifle that shot 410 45LC then i think I might consider it... I'm pretty sure H&R makes a single shot like that tho.

Doesn't a .410 require some measure of skill  :dunno: whereas a 12g or even a 20g you can just spray and pray  :dunno: :dunno:

using a 410 for wingshooting could be seen as the equivalent of bowhunting big game. as i said earlier in the thread i use a 410 for upland game quite often and it also sees a lot of cherry crop protection duty. but i use a 410 to hunt with to give an extra challenge to the hunt, similar to the extra challenge of bowhunting deer or elk. if i really want quail or dove for dinner ill take the 12 or 20 ga with me and ill bring home dinner, with the 410 its more about getting out there for the hunt and really knowing your abilities as an upland hunter and abilities as a shotgunner.

the 410 is a lot less forgiving than any other gauge, your margin of error is small. ive been around shotgunning for a long time both hunting and competitive and i honestly believe that the best shotgunners are the people who are highly successful with a 410

the only skill you need with a .410 is to be able steer the truck and shoot. :chuckle:

I would say a .410 shooter needs to have more restraint than skill, the load is a serious handy cap. there was another site that recently got into this, and they determined that 25 yds is about as far a shot as you should take with a 410 on larger birds.

 although I will ad that anyone going out in the field with a scatter gun who intends to "spray and pray" or poke and hope for the majority of their shots shouldn't be out there.

I shoot my womens and kids gun at skeet alot,because I shoot alot of skeet and reload, it makes perfect sense to do so,it improves focus and is a whole heck cheaper on my wallet in the shot department,for every 7/8 oz 20 shell I get 2 whacks with the 7/16 oz 410.Twice the shells for the same price.

I will agree that hunting with a 410 would be a challenge, having a neck injury I had to give up my over and under and thought about using my 1100 410 for hunting, when my son was shooting the gun I had always wondered about hitting anything beyond the 16 yard line at trap, one of the handicap shooters was watching my son shoot and asked to see his gun, needless to say this guy was breaking targets at the 27 yard line so it is possible.
