I could only find Bismith shot for my kid's .410. $35 dollars a box!! The .410 is a tough gun for a starter. I know everyone does it but at the trap range we go to for the fun shoots we make the best shooters in the group shoot .410's as it is more difficult to hit the mark. I found the shells at a gun shop not a chain store.

i am pretty sure that hevi shot makes some for .410 but again they are going to be pricey. i know .410 is what i started with but as soon as the switch to steel happened my old man bought me a 20 gauge quickly. Don't know if grandpa would be offended but i would probably get a 20 for him. it will cost more but you are going to pay for it eventually in shells anyway sticking with the .410 good luck i hope he get hooked like so many of us have. ike

I bought some Bismuth from Cabela's last year. If I remeber correctly they were something like $15 for a box. A box is only 10 shells.

I have not tried them yet so I have no idea how well they work.

When I was looking (about 5 seasons ago) I could only find bismuth at $35.00 per box (25 shells). I told my son (then 9) that I would buy 2 boxes of the bismuth .410's, and when they were gone, he had to go to a 20 ga. I bought the 20, and he hunted with it long enough (2 days of the next season)to se his friend drop a duck with a 12 ga. After that he went to the 12. Life is good when you can buy all the same shells. BTW, we all now shoot 30-06 rifles for the same reason.

Shoot straight---

Bought a box of the bismuth for my son a few years back, and was thoroughly unimpressed with how they patterned. He managed to ding a couple of ducks and a coot, but I watched him try to get a cripple and the shot went around the duck but not a single pellet hit the duck. We took a couple of shots at paper later, and discovered a very scattered and clumped pattern. Absolutely unacceptable.

We donated the leftover shells to my buddy who has a Contender in .45/.410, and his patterns were awful also.

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!
