No, they won't even come close to fitting.
Why not buy .38 shotshells.
the shotgun takes a 2 3/4 shell
It is a shotgun shell.
It means that you have a .410 shotgun, and that the barrel has been subjected to a "proof" test. A special high pressure shell is fired during proofing that has much more energy than any shell you could buy. If the gun can safely fire that very powerful shell, it has been "proofed", and should be safe to fire with any standard shell.
Generally, you can fire any ammunition that's 3" or shorter (fired length) in a 3" chamber shotgun. however, a 2 1/4 inch shell may not be handled by the action of a pump, autoloader or bolt action gun.
That is the rear end of the barrel where the shell is inserted.
It is the round with which the revolver was "proof fired" at the factory to test its functionality.
When it loses its head.
Usually a revolver, although a few rifles were made in that caliber.
The presently manufactured Taurus "Judge" in its many variations fits that bill in .410.
None. Some handguns have been made that will fire .45 Long Colt revolver rounds and .410 shotgun shells, but that does not mean that you can take any .410 shotgun and stick .45 handgun ammo in there.
A buckshot is a large size shell that is carefully packed into shotguns. They are mainly used for hunting large game such as deer and moose. A buckshot can easily be fired without a shotgun if there was an explosion.
American Heavy Machine Guns in WW2 fired .30 caliber rounds. The .50 caliber machine gun was 0.50 caliber which is 1/2-inch diameter and about 2 inches long. The shell before firing is about 6 inches in length.
The same as is it was fired from a gun, except the explosion would be broader.
Absolutely not. A .45 Long Colt bullet is nominally .455 inches in diameter. A .410 is .41 caliber. The cartridge will fit because of the extra chamber diameter to accommodate the thick body of the shotgun shell, but attempting to fire a revolver cartridge will result in overpressure, a burst barrel, and likely injury.The chamber pressure of a .45 LC is higher than a shotgun is designed to tolerate, to begin with.
No. The Luger was a 9mm gun and the 50 Desert Eage is a 50 caliber gun. The 9mm round would fall out of the barrel, and if you did manager to get it to fire, you could damage the gun and/or hurt yourself.
It provides an opening for the empty shell casing to ejected from the gun once it is fired. It serves the same purpose on any other type of gun.
