Bought this Friday at Third Generation Shooting Supply (AKA “Gene Sears”). Fired one round today in my S&W governor. Could not fire a second round, couldn’t pull the trigger, couldn’t even pull the hammer back. Tried to open the cylinder, wouldn’t budge. After wrestling with it for about five minutes finally got the cylinder to open, had to take a wooden dowel to tap the empty case out. If you look closely at the bottom of the fired case you will notice the bulge. Would you fire another shell or hope that they can be returned. I have a Iver Johnson 410 single shot that I’m thinking about trying one in tomorrow. Bad idea or not?

I researched the 410 shot shells in pistols jamming and seems low brass or certain brands flow more rearward than others and get stuck.

I came to the conclusion the Governor does not really have a 410 "shotgun" Chamber towards the rear.

I am really curious as to exact measurements between the S&W and the 410 shotgun.
Is the area where the brass sits smaller in the shotgun?
Is the shotgun shell in the shotgun held firm so it can't move rearward?

I know there will be a space on the revolver and cases love to flow(expand) where they are not supported

I would say it was a HOT load but who uses grams instead of grains to load any kind of ammo. 14 grams come to 216.053 grains
Unless they are talking about the amount of shot then it come to 0.4938 ounces

Isn't 1/2 oz shot common in a .410?
Mirage is a popular shotgun shell manufactured in Italy.

I have the judge and shot lots of different ammo through it mostly in write-ups on this forum, or just playing around with different loads. No issues what so ever with any ammo getting stuck.

The 14 GRAMS is the weight of shot charge.

Shotgun powder levels are noted in DRAMS equivalent to BP.

It seems that shell or the entire load is a bit hot. OK for shotgun, but I wouldn't use in that revolver. My $0.02
