I have not done this because i'm 99% sure it is dangerous,and only possible in certain .45 handguns like the judge.But is it possible and safe to shoot a .45 long colt round out of a .410 bore shotgun?

Them four hundredths of an inch only go one way... .41 down a .45 hole is okay but not the other way around...

.410 bore is .410 of an inch... the .45 bullet is .451-.454 unless someone peed on my leg and told me it was rain...
Research what?

This whole .410 shot shell/.45 Colt controversy has been going on for ages. The last time it really flared up was with the introduction of a new barrel for the Thompson/Center break-open pistol. It was a .45 Colt that could shoot .410 shot shells, and it was advertised as a 45/410. The specific barrel (they're interchangeable) is banned in CA -- was is a short barreled shotgun, or what?
The next time the question comes up, think about the dimensions: as hogdogs said, a .410 will fit into a .45 but not the reverse.
