Hey,

I was in a LGS yesterday and there was a 410 Enfield in the rack. Not in the best of shape but complete.

Bolt match the receiver and it was reworked in 1946.

When I asked if it had exworked to US 410 the counter clown put in a three inch 410 she!! in the action and closed the bolt, it was a dummy round. The bolt closed fine and the cc said yes it is. 

I do think this is the correct method of checking.

If it is a unmodified chamber a three she!! will not chamber, correct?

Thanks

Odd as it sounds yes it is.
The original rounds were considerably shorter & a different shape from the modern .410 rounds.
If it was chambered for the original round it would stop short by almost 1/2 an inch.

yes - you are correct , the originals [i had one] was chambered for a fireformed 303 , even the modified [i had one of those too] was shambered for the standard 2 3/4" shot she!! , ive never seen one chambered for the 3" , im not certain what the preasure diffence is but i doubt there is concern considering what these were designed for as a 303 but might be worth a look ,
