Why is 410 so expensive
 
I don't understand why 410 shells are so high for 1 box of 410 I can go buy 3 or 4 for my 12 or my 20. I want to sell my 410

Less demand which equals less production. That means higher prices. I would think they should be coming down with the revolvers being popular in .410.

I'm not a huge fan either. Only have one and I have never shot it.

I figure it would be cheaper because that's what most people started on and that everyone has one or two

Well what 410 do you have and how much do you want for it?

Yea, I'm looking for a .410 also...If the price is right and the location is near, lets review a deal...

Why not sell everything but your 22 LR?

Prices are a function of cost of production and demand. High demand allows manufacturers to gear up and produce larger lots, and high demand means shelf turnover at the store, both decrease costs. Production costs includes parts, and things like brass are sensitive to commodities markets.

Not many folks shoot 410, but the new breed of revolvers that take the 410 have been a bit of a resuscitation for the round.

You might want to keep that 410. Sometimes its just fun to shoot something different, even if it costs more. Locally, there's a Skeet shooter that hits 25/25 from the hip on the Skeet range using a 410 - he switched to 410 when his 28 ga was no longer a challenge for him. Hmmm...not sure what he switches to next.;)

That's true might want to pass it down

Maybe a pistol with plastic capsule bird shot, if he's that good
