My brother bought one for his store (self defense) and loves it. He keeps the .410's in it at the store. Saw some of his targets, the rev. shot great. They are supposed to be coming out with a new one that holds the 3 inch shell. Did you get the 2.5 inch or the new 3 incher--not sure it has hit market as of yet.

Let me know what you think! I've been wanting to shoot one myself as they've had my interest for a little while now.

It's a 2.5".

Can any one recommend good Defense ammo for the Judge in .45 colt? looking for a standard load in hollow point. Thanks Chewy.

I keep a Ruger Vaquero in my shop, loaded with Winchester Silvertip cartridges. This round was used by the Memphis Police Dept. SWAT teams awhile back.

Those Win. Silvertips are mucho effective ! I have a Blackhack Combo that I keep those in.
If you want my idea of what a good def. round for that Judge would be ,,, .410 no. 6 shot ,,, if you are gonna use it for CQB type situations , that'll git er done !
But , hey ,, I wanta know more about this pistol ! I've handled them in the shop and they really appeal to me , but no one I know has one yet .
I want to have some positive feedback so I can justify gettin' one !!

{ 'prolly gonna get one anyway}

I wouldn't recommend using shot shells for anything but extremely close range protection. I've shot my 6' barrel gun at 3, 5, 7, and 9 yards and feel 9 yards is pushing it for the .410's effectiveness. For self defense of anything larger than a snake, I use Corbon 200 grain +P JHP.
