Oh boy, that is special!
Pretty tough for killing woodcock in Southern Ontario.
I used an open choke 20 bore with some success but wished for an open 12, most of the time.

I would say that the little 410 just made a stunning re-entry back into the shooting world stage again - absolutely stunning workmanship to say the least!

For extremely good shooters only; shooting at woodcock/snipe with a 20 gauge is already reserved to an "elite" so what to say about shooting (and hitting) with a 410!

Yes, due to its very long shot string the 410 is hopeless for crossing shots but quite good for going away shots. Still, heaps of Americans buy high grade 410's and take them to Argentina to shoot doves where the small cartridge provides a challenge, and these guy are often very good and shoot shit loads of doves.
