Default New technology in 410 shells

Make a 410 shotgun a viable turkey gun.

Savage has even come out with a single shot 410 turkey gun. Has a screw in turkey choke that’s designed for the new federal TSS turkey loads. Gun comes with a base to mount a red dot sight as well. I watched a guy shoot a big tom at about 40 yards with one on tv. Worked like a charm.

My grandson loves turkey hunting but hates the recoil. So I ordered 10 boxes of TSS #9 410 shells. And we spent a week patterning both my 410 doubles before last years turkey season. The results were petty good out to about 35 yards with the lefever. The 311 was not as good only about a 25 yard gun.

So I’m thinking about giving the grandson a new savage 410 turkey gun for Christmas this year. Probably put a Burris speed bead on it for him too.

Anyone tried one of these guns yet?

I've been looking for one at online stores but can't seem to find one. My LGS tried to order one but they were on backorder. With a red dot it should make a great turkey slayer. A cylinder or improved cylinder choke tube and slugs would make a decent deer gun inside 50 yards too. I've shot a few deer with Federal 1/4 oz slugs (109 gr) and they work good.

I wasn't aware of the Savage single shot, nor the .410 TSS turkey loads. Thanks for sharing that info. Now I have something else to look into!

I've been wanting a .410 double for a long time now. Still looking for one. I may just end up buying a new Stoeger from Academy, just to get it over with.

All the best,
Glenn

If at first you don't succeed... buy newer / better equipment!

If you use the words "Savage 301 turkey 410" on Gunbroker, there are 23 listings for them right now. Starting at $160 with a "Buy it Now" option from some place called "TheGunDock", working their way up to $325.

All the best,
Glenn

Me too! I have been hunting pheasant for 50 years but nothing has ever killed them deader than my single shot 410 when I was a kid. I went from 12 to 20 to 28 gauge over the last couple of years and have still ruined too much table fare. Hunting over a good close working dog almost demands that I get a SXS 410 for my waning years.

The new turkey load should work on pheasants as a back up shot just in case if in my old age I would ding one on the first shot and need to shoot it again.

Besides and old guy carrying a double barrel 410 just looks cool!

Pastorp,


#9 shot for turkeys
Now that's a new one to me?!


Even with Federal's heavy weight tungsten shot.
that #9 pellet will only weigh the same as a lead #8 shot.


I'm still using 1-7/8 oz #6 lead thru super-full turkey choke.
It's good out to 40 yards maybe a bit more patterning for 3 brain or spine hits.


What am I missing?

Ray

Google federal 410 TSS 3 turkey shells and read all about it. My grandson is recoil intolerant so it a solution for him to hunt turkeys.

Over on NC Hunt & Fish there's a guy that's been handloading them for himself and couple buddies for several years. Seems like more and more are jumping on the 410 bandwagon. They are having no problems out to 40 yards, tho most prefer 35 max.
