How many out there have tried this?

What was your experience.

Some public hunting land in TX is archery and shotgun only. Thinking of trying this but want to hear if people are having problems before I drop $350 on an upper.

Looking for using it on white tail and pigs, under 50 years or so.

Share your experiences.

Thanks.

Have you considered a used pump 12 gauge shotgun. I have bought 870's for $100 that are in good shape.

Maybe one like that, feed all brass cases handload a lot hotter than standard 2 1/2 shotgun ammo.


Perhaps 410 chamber adapters reamed to take 357's instead of 38 Special.

Don't ask how I know but a single shot .410 with any broad head arrow can be quite effective. The hay bale tests showed considerable promise.

I have a Mossberg pump 12ga but am looking for something a bit lighter. Back in the day is wasn’t a problem humping the M60 on patrol but that was quite a while ago.

The one I listed is 6.5# empty, isn't much lighter than an 870. I have a cut down single shot H&R Topper 3" Mag that is under 4#, not a lot of fun to shoot - but it is a pleasure to pack.

Thanks.
... so just how old do pigs and deer live?

Seriously though, what advantage does the 410 offer over something like a 12 in AR platform? Are you just trying to keep equipment costs down?

OK, this seriously needs it's own thread, I'm curious how "your friend" pulled this off...

Trying to keep weight and cost down.

I believe ATI made a 410 AR awhile back. It didn't get rave reviews and was pricy.

410 is kind of an expensive round anyway (compared to 12 or 20).

Have you thought about a used saiga? Reduced recoil 20g or 12g? Maybe one of the many akdal turkish ar 12 guages?

I'm just assuming you are looking for something semi auto.

Get a single shot 20 gauge.

Probably just stick with my 12ga Mossberg for the time being until something comes along.

Unless you reload your own hulls I'd recommend going with the 20g for deer/pigs vs the 410! Saw an 870 20ga over at Buds for under $500 with both a rifled and smoothbore barrel. 20gauge slugs and shot will give you more options than a 410 bore (and 12ga even more).

Good plan. AR in .410 isn't going to do anything well. It's a gimmick, IMO.
