    Some days things just don't go as planned. And you thought you were having a bad day. LOL

    Kinda reminds me of the book, "Antlers in the Tree Top" by Who Goosed the Moose.
    I'm sorry, just couldn't resist.

    If the picture stuff works (I've not used it before) here is a picture
    if the .410 loads I use for Moose, Squirrel, and Skeet....

    Pat,
    I usually get a lot of 'sideways' glances when I pull
    out a box of those on the Skeet field. Of course, we all
    know that Skeeters can't take a joke......

    I prefer 1oz of 8's for moose. The 8's go through the fur easier than the 7-1/2's do. Moose are like waterfowl if you shoot them going away they are easier to kill and if you shoot the lead moose the rest of them won't know what to do!

    Either one would do fine for moose!!!!! Either one could drop a moose in its tracks!!!

    Using the "cutt shell" method,,,the moose would be hit by a solid slug weighing over 1oz!!!

    It will do the trick on bear too!!!

    Pat,
    Glad the hints helped you out, those darned .410 hulls
    are not the easiest things to reload but the cost savings
    makes it very worthwhile. I'm going back to Indiana the
    middle of next month myself, will be back there from the
    15th 'til the 22nd. Will probably be over at Chain-o-Lakes
    on the 19th or the 20th, but won't be taking any guns along.
    I may be able to borrow one of my old ones which I sold to
    some of the Hoosiers before we moved.......
    Good to hear from you again,
    Adam
