Anyone using a .410 shotgun for fox/grey squirrels?
Thanks!

Yes I have a Mossberg pump 410 and a sidexside 410. Hard to beat a load of 5 or 6 shot for squirrels.

410 works great... i just prefer to use a 22lr. ive just never enjoyed too-much-gun soup. nothing irks me more than biting into a pellet.

one in the ear hole and done. no wasted meat, nothing to chip a tooth on.

I hunt the Gray pine squirrel and one 80+ feet up hiding in the pine needles is hard to get a bead on sometimes. I prefer a 22 also but sometimes you can't find them for a head shot in the tall pines.

My grandpa gave me a 1951 bolt-action Mossberg 183 when I was 7. I'm 32 now and that thing has killed more squirrels between Kansas and Alabama than anyone should be lucky enough to shoot. By far my favorite gun, mostly because Papa gave it to me.
