Small bore shotguns have become a wonderful hobby for me. I have been buying, building and reloading the .410/36ga bore for some time now – I think it is the most versatile round there is. With everything from squirrels to deer being taken with the .410 (scoffers beware before you write to me), the .410 should be in everyones arsenal.
Problem is, I found it hard to locate the items and information regarding the .410 shotgun that would help me. Whether it was finding .410 shotguns for sale, .410 ammo for sale, .410 cleaning supplies, .410 reloading recipes, etc., the .410, and for that matter the .28Ga, were slim pickin’s on the web.
So here it is folks, the one stop place to be for the small-bore shooter www.410shotgunner.com. As we grow I will add more and more information so check back often. If you share my passion for small bore .410 shotguns please drop me a line, write an article and I will seriously consider publishing it, together we can make this the best site on the web for folks like us.
Remember to ride, shoot straight and speak the truth,

Hey — Just wanted to say HI
Stumbled onto your site via Google.
Keep up the good work.
I sure like the .410, i bought a Mossberg Pump for pest control around the place a couple years ago and I have had more fun with it than I have with any gun in a long time, seems like all my spare time is consumed with loading shells and shooting.
good luck — JIm
Thanks for the encouragement. I need a reveiew on the Mossberg Pump if you want to write it. I will publish it here and on my website (presently under construction) are you game?
the mossberg 500 e pump is a fine shotgun . light easy on the shoulder ,action is smooth and easy. the one thing i would like to change is the choke ,an interchangable tube would be nice. full choke is a little tight at close range.at 25 yards it has a 24″ circle ,so you have to be on target when you fire.for the money i don’t think you can beat it!high praise for the 500e.still would like a double barrel some day.
I HAVE A SAIGA FOLDING STOCK 410 SEMI. WITH 2-15 AND 2-04 ROUND MAGS. VERY FAST AUTO LOADER . I ALSO HAVE 1 PUMPER, 2 SINGLE’S AND 1 SNAKE CHARMER WOULDN’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT. GOT THUNDER 5 IN MY GET OUTTA HERE BAG. ENOUGH OTHER STUFF TO LAST 10 DAYS . THREE OFF OUR SONS ALSO HAVE 410’s IN GOTTA GO BAGS. CARRY 100 ROUNDS OF 3″ SLUGS, 25 #6 SHOT , 50 TRIPPLE 0′. HOPE I NEVER HAVE TO GO AND GRAB BUT IF I DO …..
Hi, I felt like I just needed to drop by and say a hello to you and let you know I too am an addict of the small bore 410! I hunt near my hometown in the early fall season (October 1st)for whitetail in the forest. Being that my absolute favorite things are to hunt whitetail and ruffed grouse what better weapon is there than the 410?
I carry my Winchester 9410 into the woods holding a bird shot and a slug in between my fingers as I still hunt. Depending on the noises I hear i am ready to go either way, partridge or deer I can knock em both down. I am also setup well in my permanent ground blind and my tree blind spots as the feed/bait areas are only 60 & 90 yrds. My 410 is the perfect weapon.
I am currently working with a friend of mine who’s reloading expertise is awesome. I use his hot loads with berger bullets in my Remington Game-master 760, chambered for .30-06. We are right now studying the best round to develop for use in my Winchester.
So far we have only decided on the hul, which looks like it will be a fire formd .303 brass. Need to find a great recipe for the load and choose an accurate projectile. Any suggestions?
I used to shoot skeet with a borrowed Mossberg 410 youth pump, and I loved it! I actually outshot a bunch of guys with 12 ga who were making fun of me when they saw the 410 one day! Priceless! Now I want to purchase a 410, because after a shoulder injury I find my own 20 ga has a bit too much kick. I’ll probably just be shooting with personal trap thrower.
It was a back injury for me that caused me to pick up a .410 and try it – beautiful! No more issues with recoil. My son shoots a single shot .410 with his friends. They get together and shoot backyard clays. So far he has outshot most everyone with that New England Firearms .410.
I now have a Mossberg Bantam pump that I bought several years ago. I have the 18.5″ Cylinder Bore barrel and am ordering the ventilated Modified barrel for birds, clays, skeet.
I have seen the .410 Mossberg Pumps for sale @ http://www.410shotgunner.com and they are reasonable too – less than $300.00 I think.
Send us a pic sometime if you find a decent .410 shotgun for sale. We would like to see what deals are out there.
I am trying to find a diagramfor my Leinad 410/45 Double. It is a short barrelled gun and needs a repair. It only fires from the Left hand barrel. I have tried to contact the company but no response. It appears the firing pin may be to short as the shell’s primer is dented but not enough to fire. Can you help with a schematic or blueprint with measurements. This is an excellent little gun and I take it with me into the woods regularly here in southern Alabama.
This has been the number one issue with the Leinad 410/45 Pistol. Sometimes when you fire the .410 shells it can cant the receiver and actually cause a separation/space that has too large a headspace and the firing pin no longer reaches. In order for me to help I need a clear picture of the pistol looking down from the top.
As for a schematic – I will try to find one.
PS – the guys over at http://www.ontargetguns.com just fixed one like yours with the same issue.
