winchester PDX1 shot shell

Bought some of these today for my .410 mossberg pump. these have the projectile dics's with BB's in them. Anyway I asked the clerk about using them in a full choke barrel. He said they should be the same diameter as OOO buck shot.
So as long as the disc's are not the same diameter as a slug I should be alright shooting these. Any opions or experience shooting these shells in a full choke barrel is appreciated as always, Thanks.

From what I've seen shooting them through a cylinder choke...they are a novelty at best and a waste of money at the worst.

if you're use to shooting off the shelf slugs and buckshot you can tell a big difference between those and the PDX-1 stuff (recoils more than a .410 should out of a shotgun)

Needless to say they aren't my cup of tea,I had a friend tell me about the extractor being blown after feeding his 500E a steady diet of the PDX-1.

The patterns from my tests weren't anything to write home about either.

I've had better luck with the federal loads.

The were designed for revolvers not rifles. I don't think the penetration will be great. For me, the 000 buckshot makes sense.
