    That sort of stuff is above my pay level , I`m not into the high power stuff only black powder load pressures. I think a .444 marlin would be better than a .410 slug in the bush, think of a .44mag on steroids and you would need a much better barrel for copper jacket bullets than I can make, definitely a job for a gunsmith.

    mate those are a classic wee gun and it would be a crime to muck around with it...the .410 slug is about the same as a .243 at 250 yards eg a 87ish grn pill doing 1400fps except its soft lead not jacketed..... loads of guys have used them for bailed pigs over the years but most give it away pretty quick as they dont have much margin for error, the .12ga solid is much much better..... you can buy a HnR survivor that has lighty rifled barrel and will take either .410 or .45 long colt...only single shot but would give you donor barrel.... the pump action .45 long colt would be far easier way to go.

    yeh but a rifled barrel on my 410 would give me a five shot bush gun ideal I reckon with about a sixteen inch barrel fitted with an aimpoint or red dot sight for heavy scrub and for white tail on the island

    I hear you but still think you would be far better off with .12ga version....you can get rifled barrels for likes of rem/winch pumps so sourcing one would be alot easier and you would be hitting animal with bigger hunk of lead making bigger hole to let more daylight in.... I agree completely re short ,light and hard hitting.....unfortunately in my experience the .410 solid isnt quite so much of a hard hitter.
