My 12 year old daughter has taken deer the last 2 seasons with a .410 I bought a couple of barrel clamps with a picatiny rail on the top and mounted a red dot scope just in front of the hand gaurd (like a forward scout style rifle). she can consistently in a seated position hit pop cans at 40- 50 yrds. the accuracy drops a bunch after that.
In a tree stand where i hunt the average shot is less than 50 yrds. rest the gun on the rail of the tree stand any deer with in 50 yrds is meat on the table.
Just my 2 cents.

Default .410 s/s

i just recently purchased a .410 single shot and would like any useful ballistic info on it. i have been told that they have 75% of the power of a 4570 govt. at a 100 yards. is this true?

At up to around fifty yards a 410 will get the job done easily. A friend of mine has taken deer with a bolt action 410 every season for the last thirty years. I think that I might try it this year just to see if it will work for me. At my most productive stand the longest shot one can take is sixty yards so it should be the ideal place to try it out.

Taslan- sorry, not even close. There are several 45-70 loads, but even using a light 45-70 load, you get about 1200 ft lbs at 100 yds. The .410 gets about 255 ft lbs at 100 yds. 45-70, somewhere around a 400 grain bullet, a .410 slug is about 88 grains. The .410 is a lighter slug, traveling slower. At 100 yards, it is about ONE FIFTH of the energy of a 45-70.

Will it kill a deer? Yeah- got my first deer ever at age 10 with a .410 slug, at about 40 yards. Shot placement critical, expect deer to run while bleeding out- but take out heart/lungs, it will work. Would not be my first choice, not legal everywhere.

Default 410 shotgun

I have a 410 shotgun made by mossburgh bolt action,I would take it to the local turkey shoot's and clean house baby!!!...that little gun put's shame on 12 gauge's. The shot's are so tight,that they would check my gun over after I shot,and shake there head's!!!...I still got that gun,so if I need any meat,I just go to the local turkey shoot. They hate that gun when I pull it out.

OK I am confused. 410 shotgun slug loads are 1/2 oz @1815fps. conversion chart says that is 218.75 grains. What is with the 97 grains? That is a lot hotter than a 41 mag pistol.

JTJ- you might want to check your source on the weight of a .410 slug. Mine has 1/5 of an ounce for foster type slugs, not 1/2 ounce.

Shooting times ballistic charts.
It looks like they made a mistake on the slug size. Loads from mfgs mostly show 1/5 oz with 1/4 oz in 3".
I ran across some interesting hand load data though. The gentleman is sizing and loading 148 grn 38 wadcutters in a duplex load and experimenting with a 1/2 oz single slug load. link did not load.

This little 410 bore is quite capable
