    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.

    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.
