Yup, the .410 requires a light touch as well as many rounds. When I knew what end the shot comes out, a few years ago, I ran 246X250 with my Model 42 Cutts gun, all rounds back to back. I was out to shoot just a couple of rounds of practice, but just kept shooting as long as I was doing well. I have never shot my regular K-32 skeet gun as well. My friend, Kevin McCormack, shoots sporting clays with a .410 Citori and does as well as with bigger guns.

Steve C. told me that the more gun movement you made, the more chance you had of missing the target.
Todd, as my first coach taught me decades ago, "Random gun movement loses targets." I agree with Steve C. 100%.

I stumbled upon a near mint 410 Iver Johnson sxs locally a while back. Shoot skeet with it. Love it!

One thing to remember you aim a rifle and you point a shotgun.

You aim a rifle 99% of the time. However, when you shoot a rifle at a moving target, such as a running deer, you shoot it exactly as you would a shotgun at a flying bird.

Just my personal experience.
