    Shoot rats in the barn or clay birds if you must, but I feel the diminutive .410 is largely a waste of time.
    Sorry Brian but a 5/8oz load of NP #7 at 1380fps is hardly diminutive. 205 #7 pellets in a full choke 410 is bird lethal out to 30yrds

    The F&S article did not find this claim about shot string of the 28 to be true.

    Yes most guys that can't find the bird with the small tight pattern usually feel the same way. Just kidding bro

    Then the writers "science" leaves a bit to be desired. Shot string lenth has EVERYTHING to do with pellet count at time of impact. Don't be coy archer, you know what patternmaster chokes are intended for, you had one. A short shot string puts more pellets on target at time of impact.

    My daughter started on a 410 and will use nothing else. She is 25 now smokes clays and birds in open field over pointing dogs.
    But it just dose not do so well in the home of the woodcock and grouse.

    See some guys mentioning 410s. We all know it's not a gauge . My problem w that gun is they're typically choked so tight the rat hole whatever ya hit. And lots of kids are started on them. Not kids guns

    Guys, megathanks for all the input and opinions provided here. I did succeed in getting my 28 Ga SxS, picking it up from LeftyJT this past weekend. I got a BNIB, unfired SKB that is SWEET. Anyone dealing with LeftyJT as a seller should deal with absolute confidence. He's a no BS, straight up guy and a real tribute to this site. Hats off, as well, to Ducati for putting me on the deal!

    Max, I'm going to need to pick your brain on some of the loads you referenced earlier, bro.
