    Gentlemen,
    Below is a picture of 410 ammunition recently purchased.
    It reads “handgun” ammunition on it….is this ammo capable and/or safe to shoot out of a 20 inch barreled coach side by side (410) shotgun? Or only a handgun as stated….
    The shotgun will be used as a home defense only….thank you for your response

    Im sure the experts will chime in but i think it has fast burning powder to cut down on the fireball from a handgun length barrel. Should be ok in a shotgun?
    Im no expert, but Id agree with this analysis - it sounds reasonable to me. :)

    Where did you find the 410 ammo, online or on a shelf somewhere?

    is it the ammo that has flats and bucks or is it bird or buck shot
    the disc could potential cause a barrel blockage on a long barrel?

    I used some of it in a NEF youth model that has a 22 inch barrel, it functions as intended . That ammunition has four round balls of lead.
