I bought a pack of them because they were cheap. What is the point of them? Who are they marketed too?

While we're at it, the buckshot with only 3 pellets, what's the point of that?

Any of you bashers care to stand downrange of those three pellets or that .41 cal slug coming at you at high velocity.

My 10 y/o son uses .410 slugs in his shotgun. Range for him is kept at 50 yards and under. So far, he has not shot anything, but I'm sure that if his aim is true killing a small hog or deer with the .410 slug won't be a "great accomplishment" as I'm sure the are quite deadly at that range.

knew a guy down here, his son used the lil 410 nef/hr with the slugs. he would do the same 40-60 yrds at best but he'd sit in the stand till they were as close as they could get and nail them. last onei heard that he harvested it was under 30 yrds and complete pass thru! Granted wouldnt be my 1st choice but for a small kid or small frame person wanting a shotgun to hunt with they will work.

My wife killed her first buck last year with a .410 singleshot. Here in Indiana, we are restricted to shotgun only for deer. The combination of my wife's small frame and the fact that she cannot have any shock to her right arm due to breast cancer surgery four years ago made the .410 the logical choice. She has a permanent treestand built in an area where shots past 30 yards are not really feasible anyway.

She's really looking forward to this season, as we traded her New England singleshot in on a semi-auto Saiga that will soon sport a red-dot optic.

Not to bash the .410, I like them also. But a lot of this "do you wanna stand downrange of one " bullshit gets old.

A .177 BB from my old Crosman air rifle stings a bit, so by that logic it is something I wouldn't want to face in a fight.

Yeah, a .410 is gonna hurt, but slugs and buckshot ? Except for maybe 1% of folks in 1% of the situations they might be in, it's gonna be pretty marginal.

Just because only a dork would wanna be shot at with one doesn't make them particularly useful.

they aren't legal here for deer.

+1, I don't want to get hit with any flying projectile but also I don't want to rely on a .410 to get the job done any more than I want to rely on 25ACP as a primary defensive pistol round.

I must conclude that 9mm and 40s are totally worthless also. Wife has a sweet 16 loaded up when I'm outta town, I do not consider her underarmed at all, 16s not all that much different then a 410. Not for me but to my 110 pound wife it works.

I have a Marlin model 410 lever,and even though it will only handle a 2&1/2 shell with a 40 cal slug it might be quite empressive at close range!!!

Plus the slug gives it a little more versatility!!!

You can't use .410s in NY. And you sure as hell can't hunt deer with buckshot in any part of this state. Buckshot's only legal for non-bird small game.

Some parts of this state rifle is OK for deer.

what about the #3 buckshot with 3 pellets? I bought some for my derringer that's sits next to my bed as a back up/ bump in the night gun. At close range 3-7 yards wouldn't that do some damage?

16 is way different than a 410.

Its nearly halfway between a 12 and a 20, and people hunt deer with both.

I've got a 16 but I didn't know people still make buckshot loads for them.

Lots of guys I know still squirrel hunt with .410s. I'm actually thinking of buying one so I can. It's fun. And I've seen deer drop from them. When I was younger I hunted with one for about 3 years. Dad decided I was a little tougher than he thought one year and I went from that NEF .410 to his Remmy 7mm rem mag. ow. Bout 10 years old and I cried like a little girl the first time I shot it, UNTIL I pulled the trigger. I was so tense I had that damn thing pulled halfway through my shoulder when I pulled the trigger. Anyway, like it or not a .410 has it's place in the deer woods and many MANY deer have been taken with them.

The .410 slug might seem puny compared to the 12 and 20 gauges, but it still packs a punch. According to Remington's web site, their .410 rifled slug throws a 1/5 oz slug at 1830 fps, for 654 ft/lb of energy. That's quite a bit more than a .357 mag (from a revolver) and approaches .44 mag energy levels. That's more than enough for deer, as most whitetails are not that big. Keep the range at about 50 yds, and it will get the job done.

The .410 is more accurate than a 20 or 12 gauge as long as we are talking smooth bores.

you can also use .45 colt in it to
