Default 357 and 410 ammo

Hi, I've just purchased a Taurus 357 revolver and also 'The Judge' I'm looking to buy ammo...dumb question probably but will any 357 ammo work safely in these. I've read that you can use 38 ammo too for practice again can I safely?

A .357 can use .357 or .38 ammunition. The judge is .410 or .45 colt (usually called long colt.)


No offense and none taken

The judge will also fire the rarer 45 schofield.

Druid- welcome to the forum- when you get a minute, drop by the intro thread and say howdy.

As already said- your .357 revolver can shoot any .357 Magnum or .38 Special. It cannot shoot .357 SIG or .38 S&W.

The Judge is a different caliber. That will use .45 colt (NOT .45 auto) and .410 shotgun shells- most use 2.5 inch shells, but check the markings on your gun.

Of course, the .45 cannot fire .357 Magnum.


What we have heah is.... failure to communicate.

357 & 38 special can also handle 38 long colt [and short colt].
of course good luck on finding any ammo, 410 still seems to be on shelves, so the versatility of the judge may prove usefull...
