Default .410

Yes, you are correct. Compare choke to choke. When the .410 and the 12 gauge are compared firing at the same distance w/ the same shoke, the .410 will throw a wider pattern. The reason is because of the long shot column of the .410 shell. More shot is deformed in the .410 causing more "fliers," thus a wider pattern.

the longer wad and the smaller the bore, the more pellets contact the bore as it travels down....causing deformity.

Yes, some (many) incorrectly refer to 410 as gauge, to denote that they are talking about a shotgun. Gauge is a measurement system, it denotes the number of lead spheres the size of the bore that it takes to equal one pound. 10 gauge takes ten lead spheres of that bore diameter to equal one pound. 12 gauge takes 12 lead spheres, 16 takes 16, 20 20, 28 28, where as the 410 takes 67 (iirc), thats why with 10, 12, 16, 20, 28, the higher the number, the smaller the diameter of the bore. There are also (obsolete) 9mm smoothbore and 22 smoothbore, im sure there are a couple other old small bored shotguns that i dont have listed.

That is an interesting fact about .410 being cal.not Ga. As far as shooting with a .410....it is very humbling. After being used to a 12ga....I have recently pulled out the old .410 and have a tough time hitting moving targets for sure..pattern much wider and less shout bring thrown out!
