    I shoot .012 and .016 in both 28 and 410 and 8 1/2s.

    The 2 1/2" 410 patterns much better than the 3".. and yes 8's or 8.5's.. But I got good results with .020 in 410.. back to the 21 yard line.. Yes.. It can be done..

    I use IC and Mod, or IC and LM. Sometimes the full or IM does not pattern any tighter than a Mod at longer distances. They do on a pattern board at 20yds but not at 30 or 35 ( more shot deformation I think) Your gun might be different but don't assume what happens at 20 holds to 30 or 40.

    I shoot quite a bit of sporting with a Remington 1100 Sporting .410 gauge. The most open choke I use is an improved cylinder (this is what I shoot skeet with). The choke I use the most is a Modified. From there I go to a Full for the long shots (35 yards and up).

    I shoot 2-1/2 shells with 1/2 ounce of 8-1/2's and switch to 7-1/2's for the really long shots.

    Can break awfully long targets with 8 1/2s...Not enough 7 1/2s in a half ounce to justify using them over 8s or 8 1/2s.

    Using a Briley Ultimate Ultralite Tubeset, I had great results with the 410 using IMOD/LF.

    Although it is very pricey, copper plated 7 1/2's in the 3" gave me good performance at range.

    If asked, Briley will chamber the 410 tubes in 3".

    My M42 has a modified choke and it likes skeet. I see no reason to change.

    I was interested in the newer 1100 Sporting .410 because it's said to be set up to cycle both 2.5" and 3" shells, and it has choke tubes.<br>

    But given the low recoil, the .410 870 Wingmaster would be a good alternative, except that it has a fixed mod choke. (The 870 .410 Express has a fixed full.) I wish Remington would have put screw in choke tubes in the 870.

    Technoid once wrote, "The are two chokes in the .410; skeet and a little more than skeet. My patterning confirms that.

    My 870 .410 skeet barrel and modified barrel measured and shot the same.

    I shot sporting clays at Ozark Shooting Sports in Missouri with two guys who were shooting 410 Browning O/U's. I was amazed the solid hits they were getting- as good as my 12 gauge on most shots. Makes me miss the 70's when we all shot skeet with 410's. They were a lot cheaper than 12 gauge shells back then.
