Went to the gun shop today, and found a sweet little Mossberg .410 over/under. Thing just about points itself. They had some 110 gr. slugs for it, and the box says 1775 ft/sec. Now, I know most of you guys shoot bigger stuff than deer, but for those in the know, is this an appropriate load for shots on deer under 50 yds or so? I know the slug is heavy enough, but what about the velocity? One of the guys at the shop was saying that the 410 slug trajectory is better than that of a 12 gauge slug. That right? I don't have a lot of experience with scatterguns.
I like the idea of having a gun I can use for deer in thick bush, for birds, and also something the kids will enjoy shooting as well.
Appreciate any input.
