    Well I only wanted two boxes but guess I can see what else they have. I haven’t patterned and these days probably wouldn’t hurt to stock up!

    Yeah, but they don't weigh 2.5 pounds. I set mine up for the littlens and my wife, but I've killed several with it also. Just neat carrying that little gun in the woods and being able to stomp turkeys at typical 12 gauge ranges.

    I only joined the craze because my brother gave me a 410 turkey gun. And actually I haven’t shot it yet so haven’t officially joined the 410 craze.

    What he said! I wanted to try my 1977 Ithaca single shot. My first gun. Factory full barrel. Couldn’t believe how well the tss #9’s patterned at 30 yards! Killed one at 32 yards stone cold. And it’s like packing around a BB gun! With no recoil at all! Also made the walk back to the truck that much easier!

    I’ve been keeping an eye out for a 301 .410 in bottomland for my daughters to use eventually when they start off. Haven’t been able to find one in my area yet but I’m also not in a big hurry and trying to find a sale price. Still have a couple years before the oldest will be ready.

    Is .410 more scarce than 12ga? I'm thinking I may drop down and use the I-12 instead of packing ol fencepost(Turkey pewpew) through the woods this spring. I got a couple basspro/cabelas cards to cash in. Won't hurt as bad that way and if it makes me a believer I'll have to continue lol.

  8. I have a little H&R single shot 410 my dad bought brand new for me in 1978 when I was 9 years old for $39.99 plus tax. You can bet I’ll be patterning it with with some TSS as soon as I can acquire.

    Chokes seem plentiful. Shells not so much. I went ahead and bought 4 boxes from Rogers online. They better be awesome! Never paid that much for shells in my life. I’m a cheap arse, didn’t even buy my gun, it was given to me. Anyone need a box of TSS #9? Sell em to ya $75 :D
     
  11. Don’t quote me but I want to say my $5 allowance would buy two boxes of .410 shells back in the day.

    Enough is enough! I’ve seen to many of these threads the last couple years...

    I ordered 5#’s of TSS, a .410 hull vice and roll crimp today.

    Ive got some components on hand so all I need are wads, powder, hulls and a .410 shotgun. LOL!
