    Taurus Raging Judge

    I own a 3" Judge for CCL but I am looking at the 6 1/2" Raging Judge to carry in the mountains or woods. And to shoot 100yd targets at our range. Has anyone fired or own a .454 Casull? Any opinions on this weapon?

    The .410 isn't what it was hyped up to be as a defensive round. For the woods bird shot wouldn't be a bad idea for snakes, and the .454 is good for larger animals.

    Dont be too quick to knock .410 though- with the right loads and within a short range, it can be rather nasty.
    But if used as a defensive arm vs. humans, I'd suggest stick to the .45 aspect of it- and still within short ranges- call it 15-20 ft.

    I still want one of these myself-but for use against the seemingly endless hoards of rattlesnakes and cottonmouths I get around here..

    Absolutely!

    Would love to own one of those as well, I want to focus on my home and carry defense collection first though.

    BTW I'm not knocking the judge for carry, just not right for me.

    I've never shot the .454 Casull...but I can tell you that I'm sold on the Judge line of revolvers.

    My Public Defender is very accurate with .45 Long Colt at 25 yards.

    About a week ago, I was able to shoot the 45 mag Raging Bull...WOW, with the vents in the barrel... really take away the recoil. I'm not perfect, but I was hitting a target about 8 inches in diameter at 25 yards away. I think that will be a good controlble handgun in the woods

    My buddy picked up a 3"bbl Raging Judge a few months ago. Awsome piece! We have been able to ding the 10" target at 100 yds with both .454 and the .45 long at least 1 out of 6.. fun fun fun tough to find a good affordable holster for though, just my 2
