Want to learn to be humble? I have a Remington 1100 in .410. Shoot a round of sporting clays with THAT.

Humility will be added automatically! :o:o:o

10 rounds? Were you shooting actual skeet on a regulation skeet field, or clay targets thrown w/ a hand trap in a pasture? There is a .410 division in competition skeet. Out of 100, scores are usually in the upper 90's for experienced skeet shooters.

Funny thing, but most people still believe the myth that a .410 holds a tight pattern because of the smaller bore. The truth is that a .410 pattern will be wider than a 12 gauge for the same distance. The pattern will not be as even or as dense, but it will be wider.

Years ago I remember watching one of the "human interest" stories during the Olympics. They were interviewing one of the American trap shooters. They asked how he prepared for the games. His answer was shooting trap with a .22

410 is a great ga to shoot.
but not out of a circuit judge...that has lands and grooves. it worthless past 15yds and no choke.

The .410 is not a gauge. It is a bore or .41 caliber. If it were a gauge, it would be about a 67 gauge.

Isnt spread determined by choke and not the main bore size?
