Saiga .410 Shotgun Ammo

Will Saiga .410 slugs in 2.75" fit and fire in a regular 3" chamber shotgun.? I am not interested in the length, I need to know about the diameter and pressure. Charlie

Yep. yep.

.410 is .410, no matter the look.
The defining factor in over the counter shotshells is length.
If you have a 3 inch chamber and want to use 2.5, or 2.75, inch shells, have at it.

The only exception I can think of would be slugs. If you have the wrong choke in the shotgun, slugs could be a bad idea.

....410 only comes in 2-1/2" and 3," not 2-3/4".

Thank's Guy's, but I need to know if the O.D. and Case Pressure are compatable. Charlie

Yes, you can safely fire shorter .410s in the 3" chamber.

A buddy of mine took his Saiga 410 to the range last week. He was shooting the 2 1/2, said he problems cycling. He switched to 3" and all was good. Good luck.

Saiga .410 ammo

I want to thank all of you for your input. I have been in the firearms business over 36 years, and have always dealt with published info for any question I may have had. I did find the info I was looking for. And YES, you were all correct. But I found it written and commented on at AmmunitionToGo. It directed me to the specifics I needed. Here they are. For the Saiga .410 gauge it refered me to the 3" Slug 97gr Barnaul. It said,and I quote" These shells will fit any shotgun with a 3" chamber. " What kept throwing me was the metal case involved. Again thank all of you. Charlie

I talked to him via e-mail, he was trying to figure out what it was worth so I gave him a few links to get an average...not sure what he'll settle on. Found some for $46 for 100 at Ammo to Go. OOPS, just saw you checked there.
