It looks to me that the .410 started out as a 2" to be shot in 45/70s
COTW states that the .410 shotgun was developed from 44XL Shot, a 44-40 case with a paper or wood shot capsule. OAL was just over 2".

It is certainly possible to fire 410 shotshells in a 45-70 with no ill effects.

I do believe there were 45-70 shot cartridges loaded by the US mililtary. Someone who is an avid cartridge collector should chime in any time.
