 :Ah#:

1#- A 12 Gauge shoots harder and farther than a .410 does.

Answer: Not correct.  A 12ga. will put up a bigger pattern than a .410 will. Given the same size shot, they both shoot as "hard" and as far. 

A 12 Ga. kicks harder because it launches more weight than the .410.
A 12 Ga. will kill more birds per shot because it launched a bigger pattern.

A good person with a .410 will shoot an exact score as a 12 ga. shooter and have less of a sore shoulder.

A .410 shooter can carry more ammunition, and a lighter gun...and still outshoot the big gun theorists.
