Re: 410 2 1/2 shell has more velocity then the 3 inch
To get the added velocity the 2 1/2" shells has a trade off of less pellets. I've used my .410 a lot for hunting squirrels and rabbits. Federal 3" #4 or #5 shot work best for me. The heavier shot keeps it's energy better down range. Like any other shotgun, you still need to find the load that your .410 patterns best.
