Turkey with a .410?

Postby Everyday Hunter » May 7th, 2009, 12:07 pm

Anyone here ever shoot a gobbler with a .410 shotgun? I'd like to try.

What brand, model, etc.

Can't use them here. Nothing smaller than 20 gauge.

Just for the heck of it I patterned my SXS stevens full and full this year at 20 yards with 3 inch 7.5s. At 20 yards 120 in a ten inch circle which is more than adequate to knock their fool heads off.

A couple of young fall birds have fallen to a .410 with lead 6's from our group.  It was a .22/.410 single shot, I don't know the make or model.  I personally took several fall birds with a Franchi 28ga with 1oz #6 lead but had to pass on a fall gobbler that came by me at around 40 yards so I went back to the 20ga.  I was a sweet carrying gun but I didn't reload 28ga and ammo was pretty expensive so it left the arsenal last fall to a new home with a 14 yr old young lady starting out her hunting/shooting career.
