    Want to learn to be humble? I have a Remington 1100 in .410. Shoot a round of sporting clays with THAT.

    Humility will be added automatically! :eek::eek::eek:

    .410


    10 rounds? Were you shooting actual skeet on a regulation skeet field, or clay targets thrown w/ a hand trap in a pasture? There is a .410 division in competition skeet. Out of 100, scores are usually in the upper 90's for experienced skeet shooters.

    Funny thing, but most people still believe the myth that a .410 holds a tight pattern because of the smaller bore. The truth is that a .410 pattern will be wider than a 12 gauge for the same distance. The pattern will not be as even or as dense, but it will be wider.

    Years ago I remember watching one of the "human interest" stories during the Olympics. They were interviewing one of the American trap shooters. They asked how he prepared for the games. His answer was shooting trap with a .22

    .410 bore


    The .410 is not a gauge. It is a bore or .41 caliber. If it were a gauge, it would be about a 67 gauge.

    Isnt spread determined by choke and not the main bore size?

    .410

    Yes, you are correct. Compare choke to choke. When the .410 and the 12 gauge are compared firing at the same distance w/ the same shoke, the .410 will throw a wider pattern. The reason is because of the long shot column of the .410 shell. More shot is deformed in the .410 causing more "fliers," thus a wider pattern.

    the longer wad and the smaller the bore, the more pellets contact the bore as it travels down....causing deformity.

    Yes, some (many) incorrectly refer to 410 as gauge, to denote that they are talking about a shotgun. Gauge is a measurement system, it denotes the number of lead spheres the size of the bore that it takes to equal one pound. 10 gauge takes ten lead spheres of that bore diameter to equal one pound. 12 gauge takes 12 lead spheres, 16 takes 16, 20 20, 28 28, where as the 410 takes 67 (iirc), thats why with 10, 12, 16, 20, 28, the higher the number, the smaller the diameter of the bore. There are also (obsolete) 9mm smoothbore and 22 smoothbore, im sure there are a couple other old small bored shotguns that i dont have listed.

    That is an interesting fact about .410 being cal.not Ga. As far as shooting with a .410....it is very humbling. After being used to a 12ga....I have recently pulled out the old .410 and have a tough time hitting moving targets for sure..pattern much wider and less shout bring thrown out!
