    410 shotgun solids or larger pellets

    Stupid question for some but I need to know.

    Can you get solid shells or at least a larger ball bearing shell for the 410 shotgun?

    Had an emergency roo shoot yesterday, poor bugger was in pain and dying a slow death and the pellets took a few to kill it.

    Hindsight I should've used the 22 but can you get solid shells or atleast larger ball bearings?

    Quick google for .410 slug.

    https://www.winchesteraustralia.com.au/products/X413RS5

    http://www.osaaustralia.com.au/produ...riple-defense/

    And then on Cleavers firearms site.







    So yeah seems you can. Those hornady triple defence look interesting. Solid slug with 2 large BBs following it up.

    Thanks mate I'm being lazy and thought I'd ask here first before researching. But, solid with 2 bb's behind seems like a winner for sure!

    We have a lot of road accidents in our area and are always seeing fauna on their last legs in the hills. I can't afford to get larger caliber at this time but good to know I can put a poor animal out of its misery properly if needed.

    No, just a pic off images to make a point. Heard a few horror stories from farmers though. But in all honesty I think it would be ok with newer guns.

    Agree with Mudnut, another vote for big balls (hehehe) rather than solids in a .410
    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    Is your 410 choked at all? Solids are not a good idea with a choke.

    How old is the 410 ? But for humane reasons no need to use solids just use at the most sg or bb size shot. Even shot size 1 or 2's would be plenty for humane reasons.
