06/02/09 I have added two new pages to the mcb's 410 webpage index.
The first new page is Testing the Taurus Judge. My father has recently gotten a Judge and I got some free time and a chance to borrow it and have a little fun at the range.
The second new page is The Brenneke 410 Silver Slug, this 410 slug is by far my favorite so I wrote up a page to share some recent testing results.


12/18/08 Added a page with reloading data for 410 slugs. This page contains reloading data for four different weight slugs.

The fourth slug was tested quite some time ago but the data is still good so I included it with the more recent data.
