no answers. I assume your typo means .410

The pellets will hit down range at common shotgun distances. The .410 simply lacks pellet count, not powder. So patterns get thin (at least in my experience) beyond 20 yards or so. Especially on larger shot sizes like number 4's.
Number 4's will do the deed at shotgun range, there just aren't many of them in that little shell.

The .410 is best used with birdshot, number 7 and up. Which of course limits the range with loss of energy per pellet.

I grew up using a .410 my dad grew up using. I have had success with it (and of course lost a few) and it's come within 30 yards. Beyond that patterns are awfully thin.

Most .410's come with a full choke to compensate for thin patterning, but the numbers don't lie- it's not power you lack with a .410 but simply pellet count.

Yep not exactlly a long range goose gun, but a good 410 can get the job done if you are careful. I prefere a 20 gauge myself. Not a whole lot of recoil, and it shoots a WHOLE lot further.

Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun. - Ecclesiastes 8:15 KJV

"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." - 40th President of the United States Ronald Reagan 1911-2004
