Would it be a good home defense round

Sure, it should be. They have those SD rounds for the Judge, I'll bet they'd work great in a full gun.

The 410 is more tedious to load and production rates are much lower. 12 ga uses more material, but the machines can crank out huge volume because it is a snap to load and it sells by the millions.

410 is widely thought of as a "starter" gun, but is not really good for building confidence in new shooters. Actually hitting something with a 410 takes more skill than most new shooters have. Many a 410 shotgun sits after a box of ammo.

I used to be pretty good with a shotgun, but with my shoulder problem I'm developing a terrible flinch.

When I shot with downsouth and Jstrong a few weeks ago, I only put around 10-15 rounds through their 12's and it was a punishment. I suffered for about four days after that, and have given up on trying to go duck hunting this next season. My wife has forbidden me getting a 12, and I have to say, I'm not even going to attempt to sway her on it.

After shooting the 12's and flinching so bad I didn't score a single hit, I switched to the little side by side 410, began popping clays right off the bat, and loved it.

They work pretty well in a full length .410 shotgun. I use the Federal copper plated 00 buck in my singleshot FIE and my Mossberg HS410. The single gives a 9 in. triangle shaped pattern @ 10 yards. The mossberg gives me a 12.5 in. triangle pattern @ the same distance with it's spreader choke. This is with 2 and 1/2 shells, 3 balls per.

Before anyone calls a .410 inadequate, bear in mind that a .44 magnum has less energy than a 2.5 in .410. Both are small when compared to a 12 gauge, but both will still take out a BG.

You'd have to get real close. I view the 410 as a challenge for skeet shooters and short range sporting clays.

Did you guys know that a .410 throws a wider pattern than a 12 gauge?
