    Is there a .410 made chambered for two and half inch shells only?
    If so, where can i get one?

    What is the least expensive and yet appropriate slug to use in initial short range sight in of 12 Ga. rifled barrel shotgun, before going to the expensive super accurate sabots?

      Heah Bob,
      The “Comment awaiting moderation” is automatic from wordpress to let you know we have not read your post yet. As for your question concerning the 12 gauge shotgun slug site-in, I am an advocate of “Brenneke” slugs ALL the way. As far as accuracy at distance go for the 2 3/4″ – 3.00″ range. Lke a rifle, the closer you can get your projectile to the throat of the barrel the better. You will always have improved accuracy at distance this way.
      For self defence close-range work you should still go with Brenneke slugs for sale @ 410 shotgunner.com in the 2 3/4″ range reduced recoil. Brenneke slugs are for sale at a greater price than other slugs but are “The Best” hands down and worth the investment.
      If the wallet cannot handle them, check out the other slugs and buckshot available for sale @ 410shotgunner.com.

      Do you reload? If you do write back and I will give you some great recipes for handloads. For any real distances I create my self defense loads for 20 yards and less. Beyond 20 yards accuracy begins to wain with most slugs for self defense. Not always the case – but why chance it.
      Hope I answered your question, if not, let me know.
