None. While there are firearms made to shoot .45 Colt AND .410 shotshells, they are designed and made to do that. A regular .410 shotgun is NOT made to do that safely.

Is there any gun that can shoot both a shotgun load and bullet from the same barrel?

A 41 magnum caliber revolver will shoot 410 gauge shotgun shells but is not recommended. The shot will lead the barrel rifling. There are also adaptors you can put in a shotgun that allow you to fire pistol/rifle ammunition.

Can you safely shoot a 243 caliber bullet from a 410 gauge?

Hell no. .410 is not a gauge it is a caliber. True gauge is a measurement of the number of lead balls of bore diameter that constitute a pound. The .243 bullet is a lot smaller than the diameter of a .410 barrel. There are some .410's that can shoot 45 colts but not all can.

How far will a 410 shotgun shoot?

Depends on the load. 30-300 yards

What caliber is a 410 shotgun?

The 410 Shotgun is really .410 Caliber. Unlike all other sizes of shotgun, (10,12,16,20,28gauge), the 410 is measured in caliber. I believe it works out to something like 36 gauge. So the 410 shotgun is .41 Caliber

Can you shoot a 45 cal pistol cartage in a Winchester 94-410?

DO NOT DO THIS, you may cause injury to yourself or damage the weapon.

Will the snake charmer 410 shoot a 45 pistol ammo?

NO. Unlike the Judge and similar dual caliber handguns, the snake charmer was made for .410 shells ONLY. Bore diameter is too small. It MAY fire a time or two, but the pressures will be greater than the gun was designed for. Eventually it will fail, hurting you.

What pistol cartrige is 410 gauge?

There have been several handguns made that fire .410 shotgun shells- most recently the Taurus Judge. By the way, .410 is actually a caliber of shotgun, not a gauge. A .410 shotshell is about 67 gauge- but no one uses that designation.

What kind of bullet does a airsoft beeman p17 need?

The Beeman P-17 is a Pellet Pistol not an Airsoft Pistol. Airsoft shoot 6MM plastic BB's. The P-17 shoots .177 caliber Pellets at 410 Feet Per Second. (FPS) considerably faster and deadlier than any airsoft pistol. Do not shoot anyone else with a pellet pistol it could cause serious injury. If you are not sure how to shoot a pellet pistol find someone who understands shooting to teach you. Pellet pistols are beyond BB guns so the P-17 is NOT a BB gun. Be safe.

Can a 410 shotgun use a fouty-five caliber bullet safely?

No, is the short answer. The long answer is a little more complex. The .45 Colt and the .410 share similar base dimensions which make them interchangeable in certain firearms. Usually, however, you find .45 Colt/.410 shotgun combinations, meaning the firearm is designed to shoot .45 Colt, but will also accept .410 shot shells. The Taurus Judge, and Bond Derringer's Snake Slayer are two pistol examples. There are many variations, but the unifying factor is that these guns are designed to handle higher chamber and barrel pressures generated by the .45 Colt cartridge. The barrel of your typical .410 shotgun is very thin in comparison, and is designed to fire shotgun ammunition only. So, if the firearm is specifically designed for it, you can shoot .410 shotgun ammunition through a .45 Colt barrel. You cannot, nor should you attempt, to load a .45 Colt round into a .410 shotgun.

Can a 45 caliber be fired in a 410 shotgun?

A 410 shotgun is basically a 41 caliber smoothbore. A 45 caliber round may fit in the chamber, but the bullet is too big. Don't do it.
