History of .410 Bore Ammunition

The .410 bore has been around since the 1870's in Great Britain and was a niche cartridge for many years, seen as a novelty by some and as a great hunting and competition cartridge by others. The .410 started to emerge in the United States around 1915 when Harrington & Richards was the first company to introduce this shot shell in a single shot, long gun configuration. With the introduction of the 3 inch shell in 1933 by Winchester, other firearms manufacturers got on board with the .410 and its popularity grew.

Initially the .410 was thought of as a good choice for starting new and young shooters in the shotgun sports. The decreased recoil as well as a smaller, lighter shotgun was believed to help new shooters in acclimating to the noise and recoil. The argument against this is that the shooter cannot learn to work with the additional recoil of heavier cartridges and the smaller amount of shot in the cartridge makes hitting moving targets harder than with a larger shotgun. Some experienced competitors prefer to use the .410 as provides a greater challenge to breaking clays because of its smaller payload of shot.

Today, the .410 has ventured into new territory as a personal defense cartridge. Initially the .410 was not really considered a suitable cartridge in the self defense world for concealed carry work, it was relegated to use in walking canes and survival rifles. With the introduction of the Taurus Judge and Smith and Wesson Governor revolvers, the .410 became a real player in the self defense category.

With these new revolvers have come new choices in ammunition. #000 Buck in the .410 bore was unheard of before the .410 revolvers came out, now there are at least five major manufacturers that make cartridges that use the large shot in their special purpose ammo. Also, the .410 slug cartridges are much easier to find today when compared to years past, as well as specialty ammo that uses discs instead of buckshot.

The .410 Bore has proven itself to be a useful tool, not only for hunters and competitors, but also in the world of personal defense. With the recent increase in popularity, it is likely that ammunition will continue to be refined and improved as demand will keep the smallest of the shotguns alive and well.
