I have a J.C. Higgins double barrel .410 that my dad bought for me when I was twelve years old. That would have been 68 years ago. I would get off the school bus and go partridge hunting getting home about dark. Didn't kill many but had a lot of fun. I always had a few slugs to shoot porkies that would be to far up a tree for the fine shot.

Three years ago I was sitting in a two person ladder stand with my wife, she was trying to get her first deer and does not have much experience shooting firearms. So she used what was comfortable to her and what she had been learning to shoot with, a single shot H n R 410 with a 2.5 inch slug. I watched her shoot a 1.5 year old doe at about 25 yards and the slug worked just fine, ran about 50 yards and went down. Although not a complete pass through, the slug was under the fur/skin on the opposite side. Still have that slug hanging up in the barn. It will work.

I love my cheap little .410 and I have ammo for every critter in Texas from rattle snakes to wild hogs. Our states are bad to dictate how we take game but if the world went to (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) in a hand basket and I was required to keep everyone fed I could carry a .22lr and a .410 with absolute confidence.

I don't recommend it, but you can do it if legal. Foster type slugs are said to perform like a 32/20 or 327 Fed. Brennekes would probably work better if you can find them.

Yeah I usually buy a couple boxes on the way back from a big storm when I have more money than I know what to do with.

When I bought a .410 last year, the retailer told me it was legal to deer hunt with. After reading this thread, I'm glad I didn't buy it for deer hunting.

If you are a good hunter and hunt for sport a 410 is fine.You just need the skills to get close to the game,(or get the game close to you) for the kill shot with whatever weapon you use.
If you want meat and no screwing around get a good rifle.

I'd use a .410 for deer if it were legal. We have an area we hunt deer you couldn't get a clear shot beyond 20 yards. I shot a deer in there with my SxS 16 just for the fun of it. I'd like to try the .410 with those new fancy turkey loads for turkeys too but its not legal here. I killed a coyote that tried running by with a .410 while pheasant hunting once years ago. 7 1/2 shot 3" at 30' put a wallop on him. They are fun to shoot and if you do your part just fine for a lot of game. You just need to know it's limitations.

Pure n simple. Will it kill stuff, sure will.
So will a .22 lr.

A .410 is for the road warriors that wanna poke a ruffie out the window whilst driving a back country road . wink


swampgas chili and schmidt beer makes for a deadly combo

I love a 20 ga.I carried a savage 222/20 for years in the bush.Could kill anything.

I was going to say the same thing, use a 20 gauge. There is a huge difference in killing power between a 20 gauge and a 410. With a 410 you will cripple more than you will kill.
I wouldn't use a 410 for much more than squirrels.

My go to coyote gun Is my 410. A load of 4s at 30 feet puts that trapped coyote down with little or no damage.

Like every other discussion involving, "will this kill that", its all about shot placement.
If you are a doubter, ask yourself how far away from a skilled shooter who is infinitely familiar with the round would you be comfortable in him shooting in your direction.

Well, I killed a brown bear with a 22 once, but I wouldn't recommend it.
I also wouldn't recommend a 410 for deer in any circumstance other than in an emergency. Particularly in the hands of a novice hunter.
