    My problem is the gun is enormous.

    Loose peices to keep track of in a rough country trek.

    There are better choices than the Judge.

    It will likely be too heavy for many to carry long distance.

    The ammo will be hard to find, if it can be found at all.

    And tests have demonstrated that a .410 slug won’t function properly in the Judge, as the bore is too large for the slug to engage the rifling, failing to achieve adequate velocity.

    1. Revolvers are not very resilient when it comes to getting dirty. Cylinder lock, is all but guaranteed in a dirty environment.
    2. All the rounds this revolver can shoot are statistically scarce as far as scavenging ammo goes. The most common among them being .410.
    3. .410 lacks all the “cool” qualities of the .454 Casull used to promote this idea...
    In a real world SHTF scenario... not only will this guns ammo be scarce. So will parts for maintainance.
    Video verdict...? FAIL.

    I hadn't seen that about 410 slugs. I never saw much point in shooting the slugs, being less than 90 grain, when you have the option of up to 300 grain 45 Colts.

    I'm with you on weight and size of the Raging Judge. My 6.5 inch barrel Judge isn't any appreciably larger or heavier than a Colt SAA.

    I don't think the Judge...and by extention tye Raging Judge would be any use for shotshell hunting beyond 20 feet. The pattern is just too large. The Circuit Judge has a choke that condenses and straightens the pattern. It's good to 20-30 yards at the patterning range with #9 thru #6 shot. BUT...you can't shoot 45 Colt thru it...so you can either have shotshells or bullets, but not both at the same time. I've never gotten a straight answer on shooting buckshot or slugs with the choke inserted...and without specific guidence, I am afraid to attempt it.
