    I'm considering getting a Browning over and under 410 to shoot skeet. Is that very smart considering 410 shells are $12.00 a box? Pros and cons?

    If you're concerned about the cost of the ammo and you're not going to load your own, then .410 might not be the shell for you. (I load them for about $3.25/BX)

    If you're not a seasoned skeet shooter, and you frustrate easily, then .410 might not be the shell for you. (I shoot all gauges, but only pull out the .410 "on a good day")

    On the plus side, if you enjoy a challenge, want to shoot a shell with almost zero recoil, don't mind cheap looking breaks, and like that you can shoot all day without emptying your pouch, then .410 might just be the shell for you.

    410 is in a class by it shelf,if your good with a 410 your just wasting shot with the other gauges.I like the 28 ga,still fairly resonable to reload and much more forgiving.

    I shoot a Perazzi TMX with Briley .410 Companion tube in it at trap. Its fun. You will work harder to get good breaks but makes you a better shooter. Cost of ammo can be mitigated by watching Academy Sports for a shell promo. Last I bought was $90.00 to my front door for AA shells. Instead of 4 boxes I usually shoot two boxes of .410. You might sell your once fired to some skeet shooters who reload.

    JMO but I think a 28ga may be a better choice. You'll have to reload either gauge you choose, unless you have rooms full of money to buy factory shells. I see alot of good 28ga shooters at skeet, but very few 410 shooters.
