Re: Found a new Shotgun forum

I was at a lottery hunt for spring turkey in April. A teenage hunter bagged a Tom at a measured 41 yards using a 410 with TSS. I've never shot one that far away with a 12ga.

Re: 410

I patterned my 500e 410 yesterday with win 3" 410 #4, 3/4 oz. My mossy has a 26" barrel with fixed FC. At 30 yards i had a dense enough pattern for a fox squirrel but i am going to contunue shooting tree rats with my handloaded #6s.

Re: 410

Carrying just a 410 in an area with Grizzly qualifies as stupid in my book.

Re: 410

Old Savage,

My 410 levergun is ballistic twin to a 40-65 with a light boolit. My 410 loads are running way over SAAMI pressure, but the gun is find with them. My only concern is that i don't put one of my slug loads in my Mossbrrg 500E.

I just finished two red deer burgers, you can't go wrong with that choice. Sadly, the inner and outer loins are gone.

Re: Thougts on the 350 Legend?

The rebated rim brass and undersized 35 cal bullet don't work for me. If you could fire form 223 brass to 350L and load a .358" bullet i think i might have bought one.

Re: can 44-40 be loaded heavy in modern levers?

FWIW, i bought 1894 marlin 44-40 barrel from Numrich and installed it on a glenfield 30 action (same action as a marlin 336). The barrel had a groove of 0.4295". I used 44 mag data for h110 and 240g jhp. I went up to the max load per the hodgdon website. No signsofpressure issue but i don't think th...

Re: Shooting During Bad Weather

I HAD a CF bullet trap in my side of the barn. Just used it to test wildcat loads so i could check for signs of overpressure. The other half of my barn is for my wife's horses so i always put the horses in the pasture before testing loads. One day when i thought my wife had gone to work she came int...

Re: Who likes the .410 shotgun?

I have 2 functional 410s and another on the disabled list (60 yro 22/410 with a broken selector). I recently have switched to 410s for hunting because of medical issues that can be made worse with big recoil. My favorite 410 is a Glenfield 30a that i had JES rebore to 410. Barrel is fully rifled, 1:...
