Re: interchanging cartridges
chamber dimensions of a .410 shotgun are very close to that of a .45 colt cartridge, Handgun manufacturers saw an opportunity to boost sales with destructive curosities such as the thunder five, and later the judge. Basically they 'relieved' a .410 chamber so to accomodate a .45 colt cartridge. due to the elasticity of the plastic shotgun shell, it will easily expand under pressure to fill the slightly 'overbored' chamber so as to safely fire a .410 shotshell, and still be large enough to fire a .45 colt shell. note that none of these 'overbored' chambers are long enough to accomodate a 3" .410 shell, thats because the pressure could potentially be too great for the large chamber to support. creating a huge liability problem. And if you are curious, a .45 colt shell will not fit in a regular .410 chamber and a .410 shotshell will not be properly supported in a .45 colt chamber despite the fact that it is too long anyways.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
