Hi folks recently I sold a S&W mod 17 revolver and I was left with some .45 AR rounds which I can reload. My question is : I have a Sauer & Sohn SXS 24 gauge shotgun my old man left to me.Using a sub tube conversion 24 gauge to 410 is it possibly to chamber and fire 45 AR in it? I can´t buy another gun to fire them and am trying to figure out a way to use them.
Accuracy is not an issue.
Thanks regards, Ray

The .45 Auto Rim is a pistol cartridge as you know, and has a maximum pressure of 15,000 CUP. The .410 bore has a maximum pressure of 13,500 CUP so it's too much pressure for the .410.

Having said that, I personally wouldn't shoot it in a shotgun even if the pressures were compatible.

Thanks Flash but I won´t shoot in a 410 gun but in a 24 gauge fitted with a steel sub bore tube.
Thanks, regards, Ray

Also IF you value your eyes and fingers you'll never do it. 410 is a BORE NOT A GUAGE. Means the bore is .410". The 45 is .451" in diameter.........SEE the difference.......SEE the potential BOMB?

What about the Taurus Judge or S&W Defender? Or the Rossi Circuit Judge?
Since they'll shoot .45 ACP, they'll shoot .45 Auto Rim, but you'll have to eject them with a pencil or something along those lines.

Hi thanks for the answers but I can´t buy anything new in the moment. I sold my 45 ACP revolver so I was left with some 45 AR and a Lee Loader, and want to be able to use them.To clarify my point : I have a Sauer 24 gauge side by side shotgun and around here they sell a conversion from 24 to .410 (here called 36 gauge) so you can insert these .410 removable chambers in the 24 and shoot the .410 shells in it. I´ll have the steel from this conversion plus the steel chamber of the 24 so I guess it´s enough to contain the pressure generated by the 45 AR .I can start with a light load and if it´s OK progress till the proper load.Of course first I will try to slip a 45 bullet through the conversion and see if it runs through it without any obstruction.If not my project is doomed and I´ll give up.
Thanks for following this far, regards, Nicioli
