Although generally considered inadequate for self-defense, the 410 bore (sometimes referred to as 410 gauge) shotshell is useful for certain sporting uses where a large shot payload is unnecessary or even detrimental. Bird hunters sometimes use 410 shotshells to bring a target down without causing damage to the animal beyond what is necessary to achieve a clean kill.
