Don’t use this shell for self-defense in a Judge or Governor. It’s all about bagging small birds, and maybe even a few squirrels if they’re unfortunate enough to be on your hit list, too. This 2-1/2” high-brass shell is packing a 1/2 ounce charge of #7.5 lead shot. That’s 175 0.095” diameter pellets total. Winchester’s own one-piece wad promotes tighter patterning by collapsing during ignition, which prevents lead from accelerating so quickly that it can’t help but flatten down. And though we’re sure your mighty shoulder muscles could easily absorb the worst recoil a little 410 shell can dish out, the hinged wad will make this round’s recoil just a little bit lighter.
This ammo’s reliable 209 primers and light-fouling powder team up to deliver a fairly zippy muzzle velocity of 1,245 fps. That ensures your little shotty will have the reach it needs to anchor dove, quail and grouse even if those birds are being rude by flying away from you.
