Ytd my friend the FFL holder brought over my 2 new savage 410 turkey guns. He brought his 2 boys also and a truckload of rifles he wanted to shoot.
We assembled my GS’s turkey 410, and put a red dot on the installed from factory rail. The action was very stiff. So I lubed everything and worked it a few times. Then we put up a turkey target and sighted it in at 25 yards. Using 3” lead # 6’s it was a turkey killer from the start. All three boys loved it. Easy to hold and shoot. But too stiff for the smaller boys to open or reload.
So I’ve been siting in front of the tv cocking the action and opening the action and closing it. The gun is smoothing out nicely but the springs are pretty heavy. When you pop it open the fired case really get thrown out. GS has trouble cocking it. But he can shoot it good as it’s lite enough for him to hold up and keep on target.
Last night I had a big orange coon on the feeder. At least that’s what it looked like. May have been a big fat orange cat. Anyway a load of #6’s knocked it off the feeder. I thought it was dead but it got up and ran off. I’ll follow it up this morning. I usually use my drilling’s for the coons with 2& 1/2” #6 16 gauge shells.
