.410 Slugs

Check out what these guy's are doing with the diminutive .410 Sort of like a mini "12 guage from hell" the guy's at accurate reloading are doing.

Re: .410 Slugs

I built a .410 on a Moslin-Nigant action with a Douglass .411 Bore barrel. I have pushed 260 gr bullets to around 1,700 fps. without blowing out the rims on the cases, but any faster an the rims blow out. I built the gun hopeing to use brass cases, which would have been the same as the .405 Win. ( Teddy Rosevelt`s favorit African plains but Ohio won`t let me use solid brass cases. I did send for tech. data on their ammo, my give it a try.

Re: .410 Slugs

I don't know exactly what Ohio told you but I bet their heartburn is with the head stamp. If it said ".410 gauge" I don't see how they could object. The guy's over at Accurate Reloading had that problem with the "12 GAUGE FROM HELL" but after they had brass with 12 gauge on it everything was OK. They machined off the rim had it threaded and screwed on the replacement rim with the .12 gauge designation. Maybe the guy's at Hoening will do the same.

Re: .410 Slugs

I know I would certianly be interested in a "high power" shotgun. It would be great if you could get a little .410 SxS to act like a dangerous game SxS, but I would think the pressures you would need to obtain to do so would become a safety issue.

Re: .410 Slugs

With Ruger now making the JUDGE Pistol taking eather the 2 1/2 or 3 inch shell or the 45 long Colt now there are several company's making ammo just for the Judge, Winchester has a 3 inch 410 shot shell with THREE round disks and 12/00 buck shot.
Saw it demonstrated on Shooting USA last night it just ripped up the paper target, not a nice day for the bad guy.

The Judge is made by Taurus not Ruger. And it's a blast to shoot at diving blackbirds with 7 1/2 bird shot. Hard as hell too!
