Is a .410 good for any hunting applications? I have never used one.

I've hunted with a guy in Texas for Dove and Quail who always shoots a 410 side-by-side. He kicks my butt in birds per shot every time but this guy is an amazing shotgunner.

The .410 bore is great for rabbits and squirrels, for doves & quail I like a 20ga. I shot a couple rounds of trap with a friend's Remington 870 .410 and it was a very humbling experience.
