That's an old box. Must be a paper hull.
I had not noticed the "Nitro Express" moniker either.

Damn, I have had a .410 Nitro Express double rifle since I was TEN. And didn't know it! First gun I used was an old hammer side by side .410 shotgun. Elephants here I come.

Bloody marketing gonzoes. As bad back then as now.

Those projectiles are a whole 87.5gns of dynamite!
Would be good for a dingo at close range, or a rather small pig.
The old 410, wonderful pigeon gun!

Many of us in BC use .410's, singles or bolts, mostly, for grouse - on the ground or sitting in trees.
I like the 2 1/2" #6's as they pattern well enough to hit flying birds. The 3" are not good in my gun - next to useless as they have too small a killing circle at 25 yards (6") and too large a wounding circle, 3' due to the damaged pellets from too long a shot column.
The the 1/2oz 6's, I get about an 18" killing pattern, which works well for me.

I have a bolt action Mossberg .410. Three down in the magazine. My first gun, dad bought it for me in about 1957.

Has an adjustable choke. Long barrel.

With three down does it qualify as a "Proper" DGR?

I recall the "Nitro" shotshells. Might have been 12 ga.
