Shotguns are typically thought of as being used on flying critters and so are traditionally loaded with "birdshot." Birdshot has size designations from No. BBB to No. 12. Sizes from BBB to No. 9 are considered "birdshot" while No. 12 is sometimes called rat-shot or snake-shot and is typically found in rimfire loads and some centerfire pistol offerings. Probably the most popular sizes range from No. 6 to No. 9 - the higher the number, the smaller the shot but the larger the number of individual shot in each shell.

The 410 has factory offerings loading shells with No. 4 to No. 9 shot. It is to be remembered that the small size of the 410 shell lessens the number of pellets per shell and requires the shooter to be really careful to aim correctly to put the smaller pattern on target.

    Exactly what I wanted at a reasonable price and could not believe how quickly it arrived at my door.

    I have been using the #4 shot for at least 60yr's. in single barrels and one old double on our Farm's and Ranch. Hunting all types of small game. It will reach up into the tops of Cotton Wood trees for Red squirrel, Jack Rabbits, Baggers digging under the chicken house, Raccoon, Goony Birds flying out of the chicken house and many more pests and many good eatable animals. The shot size never disappointed me with that shot size. I have even used it on some rattle snakes in our saddle house that also has hen laying boxes on the floor at what could be called a " Line" cabin. I would recommend the #4 shot as an all around size to use. It also works great in my Judge Public Defender too depending on what I am doing.
