    Circuit Judge questions / opinions.

    I have been thinking about picking up a circuit judge, but I have a couple of questions.

    1) Can the .45/.410 handle "Ruger-Style" .45-Colt loads?

    2) Is the .44mag version for-sure a 5-shot?



    Everything I've found says the .44mag is a 5-shot (though the Rossi site doesn't say, which is why I ask at all). That would lead me to believe it is based on the Tracker action. I have a Raging Bull already so I'd prefer it if I could use the same speedloaders. Thus, I am leaning toward the .45 version, but ONLY if it can handle hot .45LC loads that would equal .44mag. I figure if I can get similar performance with the added benefit of being able to load it with .410 for defensive purposes, I might as well!

    I really wish they would ave built them out of the Raging Bull actions, though . 20% more capacity with .44mag, and the ability to handle the hottest .44mag or .454Cas loads would have really made the gun a lot more useful.

    *edit*

    Plus, I would seriously consider SBRing it with the barrel going down to the end of the hand guard. With a red-dot it would make a pretty sweet, but still very unique, defensive weapon. Pumping out 20 or 25 000 pellets in a couple seconds, and then putting in a cylinder of hot .45LC loads (maybe 240gr at 1600fps out of that barrel length) and making hits to 200 yards, would make it a pretty versatile little piece.

    If you thought the Taurus Judge line couldn’t get any better, you have to see this. The new Raging Judge Magnum shoots the .454 Casull round in addition to delivering the same popular combo revolver of the original Judge models, and packs a giant 6-round cylinder. Besides added capacity, the Raging Judge features the famous red “Raging Bull” backstrap for added cushioning and will be available in both 3-inch and 6-inch barrels.

    It is a 6 rd, but what a 6 rd. I have seen it this last week with the 6.5" BARREL.

    Also the rifle version,
    Circuit Judge 44Mag 18.5" Blue

    AFAIK, the Circuit Judge is not built around the Raging Judge action, and is only 5-shot. I have also heard that they aren't built for the hot .45C loads, let alone .454.

    *edit*

    And to add, I am ONLY looking at the Circuit Judge. Not really into the handgun version.
