Stevens 410 Turkey--Sight, Choke, and Ammo Setup?
« on: August 31, 2021, 03:20:10 PM »
Hey Y'all,

Purchased two Stevens 410 turkey shotguns. I'm sure a bunch of y'all have found the perfect load out for these guns. 

What is the recommended add ons and load out?

Thanks!

I heard that some stock chokes shoot great right out of the box, mine did not. With advice from some fellas, I went with Foxtrot ammo, 383 strokers, loaded with #8s tss (NY). I went with a little more open choke, IC .390, because of #8s
 being larger, getting an average of 130 in the 10"@ 40yards. I put a Bushnell T-25 red dot on it. As with any new gun, you'll gonna have to find what choke/load shoots best. I deep cleaned the barrel also with denatured alcohol...

Stock choke
Foxtrot 383 Stroker 410 3" 7/8 oz  #9.5
 Spotlessly clean barrel.
Sig RedDot.

Federal TSS #9 threw a pattern that was not as even as the Foxtrot.

Thanks for the info! I am surprised to hear about so many folks running the factory chokes. I have heard a lot about guys running the Indian Creek chokes.

Stock choke, 370 grain load of 9.5s from Hal, and vortex venom. Does mean things to turkeys.

Just ordered a Vortex Venom red dot today. Should/Can I use the stock mount that came on the gun or do I need to purchase an aftermarket one?

You can use stock mount I did. Sets a little high but no big deal with no more kick on 410.
