Based on the ones I have shot, I would say it doesn't matter what bullet you use because none of them will be truly accurate due to the long jump between case mouth and rifling. But I consider an accurate handgun to be useable as a hunting piece, so my minimum is it has to be able to keep it in the vitals at 50 yards, and preferably 100 yards, as opposed to these revolvers being able to keep the shots in a B-27 target (somewhere on the target?) out to 25-30 yards. I would recommend against buying one of these unless you intend to use it strictly as a .410, and even then, more as a snake gun than anything else since the rifled barrel ruins your shot patterns for anything other than very up close shooting.

OOH John, Your a BAD MAN... :P :P


I have been on the fence with a Judge for a couple years. Almost buying twice, but bulk and weight turned me off. (Recoil in this class is a non issue for me)


Somehow I did not know this model/version existed.


NOW, I must find one! THANK YOU!!!
