Default What .410 ammo to buy and where?

I haven't shot in probably 3 years, but I met some old friends and they want to get together for some skeet shooting. I've got a .410 shotgun and no ammo. Any advice on which ammo to buy and where to get it from? I'm on a tight budget here so I'm looking for the best bang for the buck. There are no gun stores in my area and the only place to buy ammo is walmart so unless someone has something good to say about walmart I will most likely be ordering online.

Walmarts prices aren't bad. If you're just going this once, I'd hit them up.

If the gun shoots 3 inch, and if the club allows it start there. Generally, you can't shoot any larger than 7 1/2 shot. 7 1/2, 8, or 9 shot at (11 /16 ounce) should be acceptable. You first should find out what the club allows and as always you will have to find what the gun prefers.

Thanks for the advice, this won't be at a club, it will be in my backyard. I'll check walmart.

FWIW- unless you shoot at aerial targets a LOT with a .410, prepare to become a humble man!

I inherited a Remington 1100 Light field in .410. LOVELY little shotgun. I consider self to be a fair wing shot- grew up popping quail, doves, and the occasional lost pheasant- with 12 16, and 20 guage guns.

Friends invited me to go shoot a few rounds of Sporting Clays with them. In memory of Dad, brought the .410. 50 shells later, having broken 20 of the clays........

The .410 is truly an EXPERT'S shotgun- the shot string is just REALLY small.

But good luck, and enjoy the day's shooting.

That's what I was thinking. Good luck hitting something with that small load. I'm not saying it can't be done, but it IS much harder to do than with a larger shell.

And walmart? I buy shells there on occasion, because their prices are good.

No matter where you go, .410 shells are EXPENSIVE.. My son recently bought a SXS .410 just for funning around and the best price he can find for .410 shells are $10.99 for 25. Not cheap!!

I checked the Gander Mtn near school, .22, and i got lucky with my 12 gauge shells.
But using bigger shots [slugs/buckshots] you can find them for under a buck a round.

For target loads, the price gets ridiculous.

S.S.

I bought 12 ga 00 buck for $2 bucks, ( yes $2 bucks), for 5 at Dick's near Eastview. Mall just before Christmas.
