With having a pacemaker, I had to sell my 12 and 10ga shotguns and went to a 410 due to recoil since my pacemaker is on my right shoulder.

I am having a heck of a time finding non-toxic shells for my 410 for ducks and especially for geese. Do any of you have any insight on where I could get a couple boxes for the season?

Found plenty for teal and probably other ducks if they are decoying at no more than 40 yards.

Thanks

Saw some federal #6 steel at academy yesterday, red/blue box. High brass, same loads I use for my 12 gage for teal. I think they were $11.50ish

Like I said OP, learn to reload. You can reload much better ammo for half the cost once you have the hulls.

TSS is expensive, but if .410 is all you can shoot due to the shoulder you can kill geese with the TSS loads.

TSS loads will kick the crap out of you- recoil is the issue- guess u can tone down to 1/2 oz in 410?
hear they pattern very well at 60 yards - who makes these. Would be cool to have a few boxes of 3 or 3.5 inch. Or can you only buy the tungsten spheres for re loading?

I would think I'm heavy you would have chosen a #6. There would a lot more pellets and #6 heavy will kill teal and big ducks all day long. I would shoot devoting geese with heavy6

Get yourself a semi auto 28 gauge and a couple cases of winchester steel #6's off rogers sporting goods. I shot that the last weekend of teal season and was killing em dead out to 35-40 yards. If it wasn't for the noise you would have a hard time knowing the gun went off the recoil is so light.
