Well a group of us went to Panoche this weekend and I brought along one of my AR 15 OLL's with my new 410 upper to see just what type of pattterns I was getting. The targets are set sideways to fit my cardboard sheet. Since I don't have a lot of experience with 410's I'm going to say that the outcome is what should be expected. I set the target up out at 25 yards and the first one I was using Remington Rifled Slugs 1/5 oz. After taking my first shot which came in low at around 4 o'clock. After adjusting the iron sights I begain to get some pretty good patterns. Wind was blowing pretty hard at times. Without a doubt I think this would be good out to 50 yards for snakes, rabbits, squirrels and other small game. Total round count was 10. The second target I was shooting Remington Nitro Sporting Clays with #8 shot. Some of the spread was outside the target. I would say that this would be a good snake, rabbit or squirrel patterns out to just around 25 yds maybe a little more. Total round count was 10.BobPosted ImagePosted Image

That upper sounds like fun. I'll be interested to hear how the 410 rounds perform on a coyote or a fox. Please keep us updated.
