Actualy, I believe Taurus is making a 5-shot judge for the 454 and +P colt.Dostetres, Taurus Judge is designed for 410 shotgun and 45LC. Do not use 454 Casull loads OR 45LC that is loaded to some of the "+P" pressures in the weapon. Some of the Buffalo Bore and/or CorBon stuff would surely have disastrous results.
Frankly,it scares me that you would even ask. -----pruhdlr
I'm kinda surprised as that load is a really good one for a MY RUGER 45 colt. I don't use Rem. primers so is the 7 1/2 a mag primer? If not that could be part of the problem as h110 and 296 both should be used with mag primers. I realize the 45 colt ain't a 454 but there isn't that much difference in size, only pressure capabilities. That load in the 45 colt generates in the neighborhood of 25,000 psi and right at 1350fps as I recall, so should be close to that in 454. Well, should at least make it out the barrel.I am going to agree after trial and error. ok here it goes. I started with 23 gr of H110 and Remington 71/2 primers. What I ended up with was bullets being stuck halfway in my barrel. When I opened the cylinder It was a mess with partially burned powder., as if only the primers went off. I changed lots of powder an primers with the same result... Lessons learned. So what would be a better powder for the 270gr lead bullet ? Thanks for your input.

You are correct. They call it "The Raging Judge". But it's a SIX shot 454 casull and 3in. 410 shotshell. 3in or 6in barrel. Of course will shoot 45 colt and 2 1/2 in 410 as well. Wow, I didn't realize there were so many different models of "the judge". A friend just bought one of the 45 colt models, I think I'd like to shoot it and see if it's a worthwhile option for me.
