Tuned the 410

I finally got around to figuring out the 410 game. For mine anyways.. I have one more tweaking to do and a slight windage / elevation adjustment and a quick shot to check. 
301 Stevens 410, 7/8oz, 40yrds, 10” circle and 248 pellets inside

That's fantastic.

Aim for the bottom of the waddles, and it's a dead bird. 

I adjusted up and over .. Rather be a tad high than a tad low, I aim for the cranium. I highly dislike Tungsten pellets in my breast meat lol. And unless the shot is far, tungsten plows through the breasts, breast plate and out the other side..

I agree with your thinking. Was just a comment on the pattern you had, and if you didn't get a chance to too adjust. 

I will not shoot a tom in strut. I want that neck stretched out, to reduce the chance of pellets in the breast.

@LET EM GROW there custom work stuff that cost money like lengthening the forcing cone but any idea if changing shell charge weight by less than a grain might have any effect? even with that *hole it's still pretty uniform pattern. you could shoot again and it might not be there.

Yes, as long as you're using proven pressure safe data, most cases you can lessen up the powder charge and make your patterns better. Some powders/loads you can lessen up to 6-8grains and still achieve efficiency. 

Like rifle, any shotgun powder shave the same burn rate, and switching to a different (proven) powder and charge weight can make the load shoot better, or worse.
