I've got a buddy with a judge and a circuit judge. He says at best they're novelties and that's about it in this day and age.

You can find .410 cartridges loaded with SD buckshot, but at only 5 (I believe) pellets, you're not doing yourself any favors. Most .410 is loaded with birdshot, which is generally ineffective for SD use.

If you want a revolver, you'd be much better suited with a .357 magnum than a .410.

My opinion, and IANAR (I am not a Reedo)
