I know of some guns that shoot 45 long colt and 410, but would it be possible to shoot 45 long colt out of a 410 single shot shotgun???

No. The bore diameter of a .410 is less than .410- and even .410 is smaller than a .45 Colt bullet. Yes, you can find videos of people firing all sorts of stuff from a .410 on Youtube. Feel lucky? Please go down to the FAR end of the range where I will not be splashed by bits of your former .410, and body fluids.

Guns that are .45 Colt/ .410, like the Judge are bored for .45 Colt, and actually oversized for .410.

Once again, no.

Iraqveteran8888 has some vids of different bullets fired from a .410. None did any damage, including the .454 Cassull.
With that said, DO NOT TRY IT.
It's not safe, and we need all the forum members we can get.

I don't think we want members that stupid. They may infect others with their stupidity.

True, true.

Not a unreasonable question giving the guns that are MADE to fire both calibers these days----
If i were fairly new to such i might ask myself-
Stupid wud be doing it without asking--------------

No, I'm not sayin the OP is stupid, I'm sayin that its not smart to try such a thing. I googled the exact same thing, before.

454 from a 410 ? That would be asking for injury.

Shoot only the cartridges printed on the firearm.
