      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Do they make a rifled bore for the .410 shotgun?

Recommended Posts

A Full Choke .410 has been used in our family for many years for deer hunting.

However, the gun is old and I recently purchased a brand new Mossberg .410

Will I damage the gun (full choke) if I fire slugs through it? Do they make a rifled barrel for a .410?

As far as I know, the only effective choke for a .410 is full and no to the rifled slug barrel. Rifled barrel isn't necessary because or distance. While you will gain accuracy in distance, distance is a .410's downfall.

That is not to say you can't dust a clay pigeon because you can. BUT a .410 shot group is elongated. While I can reload 3/4 oz of shot and at the same velocity as a 12 gauge, you need to keep the group smaller on account of pellets per oz. thus the tight restriction and lack of chokes.

You can use slugs with a full choke .410

Since your party has used .410 slugs to take deer you don't need me to tell you they can.

I use a Modified choke on my .410 when I shoot slugs.

I do put the Full choke on it when I am shooting 4's or 6's for small game hunting, but the Modified works good too. .410ga actually produces more preasure than the other gages so it deforms more pellets and you have a lot of "fliers" because of it.

FWIW 3" Brenekke mags for the .410 slug are my favorite. 50 yards is about all the distance I would shoot, but 30-35 and in would be best.

My .410 was also a family hand-me-down. Given to me by my aunt and uncle for Christmas when I was 12. Took it deer hunting several times, even killed a few deer with it. It is by far my favorite small game gun though. Squirels, rabbits, walk up and ground swat grouse, and the chimunks who lived in the retaining wall hate that thing as well, man to be a kid again. But I am off topic whistle

Back on topic. If you do find one (a rifled barrel .410) buy it. It would turn you shotty into one heck of a rifle., a short range rifle, but a rifle none the less.

I have never seen a rifled barrel for a .410 nor have I ever seen sabot slugs for a .410.... You would need one to make the other worth while.

I've shot rifled slugs through the full-choke smooth barrel of a .410 many times. You will be fine.
