About the Cartridge

This term does not define an individual cartridge (i.e. .45 Colt). Rather, it designates that a particular handgun is capable of firing both the .45 Colt cartridge as well as a .410 caliber shotgun shell. Both the .45 Colt cartridge and the .410 shotgun shell have the same base and case diameters. Handguns capable of firing both cartridges have their chambers extended to 2.5 or 3 inches to accommodate the longer shotgun shell. Several factors (varying shotgun shell loads, shorter handgun barrel lengths, the presence of rifling) preclude the ability to give accurate ballistics for the .410 shell shot from handguns. As such, we only provide ballistics information for the .45 Colt handgun cartridge in our rankings.
