Technically, you could shoot 45 long colts in a 410 shotgun, but it would not be a very effective way to use either cartridge. The 45 longs colt is a larger round and has more stopping power than the 410 shotgun shell. So shooting the 45 longs colt in a 410 shotgun would essentially be like using a small cannon to shoot squirrels. You would be much better off using the larger round for hunting bigger game and using the 410 shotgun for smaller prey.
It is possible to shoot a 45 Long Colt cartridge in a 410 shotgun, but it is not advisable. The combination of the slow .45 Long Colt cartridge and the fast 410 shotgun can lead to cycling problems with the gun, as well as potentially inaccurate shooting.
Additionally, the recoil from firing a 45 Long Colt in a 410 shotgun can be quite severe. For these reasons, it is usually recommended that shooters stick to using either .45 Long Colt or 410 shotgun cartridges separately, rather than combining them in one weapon.
Yes, you can shoot 45 long colts in a 410 shotgun. The recoil will be significantly more pronounced than if shooting the 45-long colt cartridge alone, but the 410 shotgun will still be able to chamber and fire the round. It’s important to keep in mind that the 410 shotgun is not as powerful as a standard rifle or pistol chambered in 45-long colts, so shots at longer distances may not be as accurate as the smaller gauge shotgun.
Yes. A 410 shotgun can fire a 45 longs colt cartridge. However, the recoil from the larger cartridge may be too much for some shotguns. Additionally, the 410 shotgun shells are not as powerful as the 45 long colt cartridges, so you may not be able to achieve the same level of accuracy or range with a 410 shotgun.
