Re: BPS .410
I've used a .410 for squirrels, rabbits and pheasants with great success for many years.
I prefer #4 or #5 shot Federal 3" from a full choke , I've found the #4's and #5's to be more effective on all three species. IMO #6 and #7 1/2's are better for grouse and woodcock.
I mostly hunt with a Fox Double .410 but seriously looked at the BPS. The BPS functioned smoothly, shouldered and pointed well but felt heavy. The fact that it's ambidextrous makes it a great choice if your a lefty with the thumb safety and bottom feed.
If I were to buy a .410 pump I'd probably buy a Remington 870 Wingmaster. I have one in 28 gauge and love it.
