My buddy Charlie spent a couple years messing around with 410 slugs before he passed away. His conclusions were that
1) high velocity is the key to the 410. 1600fps+++
2) Med weight bullets/slugs, mainly wadcutters made the best slugs. 150-250 grains
3) attach the base was column to the slug for better accuracy. Look at the Breneke/Rotwieler slug design. Some of his early slugs were Lee mold castings with was columns attached with small wood screws.
A rifled barrel would make a huge difference. All he tested were smooth bores.
Lee has a custom mold service. I have often thought of having them make a 410 version of their drivekey slug.... food for thought. If you decide to go that route we might be able to get several of us to split the cost....:thumbup:
