    raging judge problems

    I purchased a raging judge back in may and have loved it. i have shot Buffalo Bore 360 (454) through it and it operated fine. Now for some reason when I fire the loads the cylinder will not roate after i fire a round. I have to open the cylinder and manually turn it. the gun works fine and roates fine with 410 load but with the big 454 is jams after i fire it because the fired shell hits the backplate. and it did not start until today. and ideas or suggestions

    Make sure the ejector doesn't have anything underneath it that would cause the fired cartridge case to push against the back plate.

    + one for both replies... see if the ejector is in good working order then call Taurus. Let me know what you find out in case I ever run into this. I shoot 300 grain 454's regularly(once a month at least) and haven't had any trouble. -=knocking on wood and cursing that Murphy guy with all the laws under my breath=-

    try the regular 454 loads..the BB's are +p rated....dont think tarus will agree that they can be used...
    As I get older, I have come to understand, WHY our Founding Fathers chose our countrys motto to be "IN GOD WE TRUST"! Somehow they understood in the distant, future we would come to the point where we COULD'NT TRUST THE ONES WHO RUN IT!!

    I use Remington 410 Express 3" 4 shot(snakes), Federal Handgun 410 3" 000 buck(critters bigger than snakes), Hornady 45LC's(225 gr - to make large holes in targets) and Speer Gold Dot 454's(300 gr - to make me grin like a kid on Christmas morning). No problems at all with any of them. The Winchester PDX 410's gave me trouble with the cases sticking after firing - use a pen to push them out. Only bought one box of the PDX and haven't shot them since.
