Speed kills

Postby BuddyWhitetail » Mon Jan 16, 2017 9:32 am

Hi everyone! I have been looking around in some manuals my father has, trying to find some fast .410 bore reloads. Scouring the internet as well. I was wondering if any of you have any speedy .410 loads? These would be for duck, goose, pheasant and other hunt-able winged creatures. Any and all data would be great! Personally I am interested in 1450fps or faster. But I am looking to put a exclusively .410 manual together for myself and others who would be interested. Thanks in advance, and happy shooting everyone!

What shot are you wanting to use in these loads?


Roll with it. If you stay above 55 the wheel wont fall off.

What ever is applicable. Right now I am shooting federal steel #6, 3/8ths oz at 1400fps. While they do work, I want something with a bit more wallop. So anything heavier than steel that will keep its momentum. I am in the process of ordering tss 9s. I say process because my bank is giving me a headache :D

You shouldn't not need to have all that speed if you go up to high density loads. Once Im back home i can pull up the ballistic in KPY and share them for #9 tss at different speeds and then compared against #6 steel. Also the slower velocities should improve patterns.

Your going to have a hard time having anyone share loads they developed unless they have already tested them. You should get some load data when you purchase the shoot too. I would be willing to help out if i had ever developed any .410 loads but I haven't.

One thing to keep in mind is that speed is a means to an end - penetration energy. And Fishh2o is right, density trumps speed and is easier to work with, but more expensive.

BPI has a small bore manual that has some decent loads in it - if I remember correctly.

My TSS loads carry the most penetration energy of any loads I know of, but they're more expensive of course.

Both of you I agree with. The reason I am wanting a faster load is not for wallop or penetrating force but rather for my own liking. I regularly use steel loads going 1500 fps to 1635 fps out of my 20/12 gauges. I'm just trying to look for some common ground that I am comfortable/used to shooting. I know those kinds of speeds can be over kill sometimes but the lead time on moving targets is very minimal.
