No. The M35 shotshells were full length ALUMINUM cases w/ #6 shot. Packed in 25 rd boxes. Had 2-3 wooden crates of it at one time. Designed for the single shot survival gun (.22 Hornet/.410 O/U), the shells did not feed reliably in pump shotguns. Shot alot of it and eventually traded/sold rest off.
A friend still has a box or two left.

Thanks Charlie. Found a handful of Brass .410 ga. Shells, #6 shot, no headstamp. Wondered if it could be for the USAF gun.

BRASS 410?! I have some 16 guage & thought they were unusual. Could you post a photo of one w/something next to it for size comparison? They must be "neat" looking.
Tnx, Hank M.

Some of the aluminum shells were loaded with 7 1/2 shot and during WWII there were some rifled slugs issued with the Stevens .22/.410.

I have not seen brass .410 shells in some time, but I have bought steel .410 shells with some regularity up until the current ammo situation. The two steel rounds pictured below are 3 inch loaded with #6 shot.
