Re: .410 Slugs

appetiteforvenison, just curious my son's father-in-law owns a judge and carrys it in a holster whenever he's in his yard or field to shoot snakes. So i'm wondering what distance is 7 1/2 good for on blackbirds? He'd probably get a kick out of shooting some.

To be really honest with you not far at all! Even at 20 feet when they land it's tough. I'm going to the rang today and I'll try to pattern one on a full size man target, I think the shot opens up pretty fast due to the rifling. I fish where there are many cat tails surrounding a small lake and they love to dive bomb me when I'm on the dock. I let them until I'm done fishing and then I usually unload the gun about twice and I'm doing good if I get two. These are very close up. I'd be lying if I said it's not mostly luck. But man is it fun.

Mossberg M183 3-shot bolt action .410 bore shotgun. I topped it with a red-dot scope intending to hunt doves, but it didnít do well. Although it shoots like a rifle with slugs and proved quite accurate at 100 yards.
