What shot loads and slugs or buckshot are working the best as far as patterns and accuracy?

I use mostly Winchester #4 shot and slugs. Accurate for my purposes.

I have never had usable accuracy from slugs in a 410, about the only use I have found for them is dispatching livestock at point blank range.
00 or 000 works very well for me out of my 20" coach gun 4 or 5 pellets depending on the 2.5 or 3" hull and patterns around 8" at 25y.

I'd consider a good pattern out of a cylinder bore 410 using 8's and 7.5's at 25 and 30 yds to be exceptional performance .... looking forward to following your load development

I am glad to see such good results from all the 410 loads. One ? I think that the 410 slug is only about 90 grains and slows down very fast that is the weight of a .32 S&W Long slug that I wouldn't consider for anything much bigger than a fire ant. Some of you that shoot these educate me .

Slugs look good for coyote within range.
