Henry lever action .410

Postby coydog » Fri Jul 07, 2017 6:57 pm

Just tried one of these new lever .410s today and it throws amazingly dense patterns with 24 inch barrel. Sadly, only handles 2.5 inch shells. Sure wish we had a recipe for that shell with tungsten 18!! It is a solid 30 yard turkey killer now with high brass Winchester #4s.

what components would you want to use?


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

Any componants that would stay within the 2.5 inch length so that the action would function properly. I was thinking # 9 shot.

Finally took the time to work up (carefully) a 2.5 inch load for Henry with 1/2 oz. # 9s. Very impressed. 100 % at 40 yards. Very even pattern. 20 + in head and neck in anotomically correct target of turkey head. Pretty sure I've found my grandson's load and maybe mine...
