S&W did not design the 460X to chamber and fire the 410 shotshells.

Why bother? If you want shotshells, CCI makes a pretty decent one for the .45 Colt and that IS appropriate for the .460. I've shot those rounds and they'd rip a snake up beyond striking distances (at least any snake in N. America) and are fun to shoot. Don

If moon clips are utilized, may
.45 ACP be used?

45 Colt and 45 ACP are not interchangeable rounds. I also think the moon clips would be too thick to use in a pistols chambered for 45 Colt.
