    Slug for Circuit Judge? Sabot or rifled

    Hi,
    I was really interested in loading some slugs for my Circuit Judge. I’ve been casting/loading 000 with pretty good success. But wanted some for punch and possible better accuracy.

    With that being said…. The Circuit Judge is already rifled (for 45LC), so would I be correct in saying that the Sabot (non rifled slug) would be my better choice?

    Also, where can I find molds for this? Or can the molds be made? If so, where would be a good source for this?

    Thanks!!

    Sabot. Be careful! She'll pack a whallop!

    Mountain Molds. Go to the website and you can design what you want. His workmanship is flawless and very fast, not all that expensive for a custom mold. You can probably get by with a single cavity, that will keep the cost down, too.

    I am sure you have thought of this, but remember, the sabot will be the dia. of your barrel and the slug will be smaller. Good luck and don't blow your gun up.

    Actually I have not thought about that, I'm new to slugs of any kind. Although the barrel of the Judge would be bigger, considering the idea of a 45 able to go down it. So i don't think a sabot for a 410 would give me any issue, besides possibly bad accuracy. But any thoughts or advice is helpful on this

    Well, the sabot will have to fit in the 410 shell, that is a given; the slug must be just small enough to fit in the sabot. Now that the bore of the Judge is somewhere around .450 to .452 and your slug is going to be around .400 sitting in a sabot that is at least .410, the sabot is not going to engage the lands and groves of the barrel with consistency, therefore your accuracy is going be very little if any beyond 15 feet. .....I see no advantage to using a .410 slug at all when you have the .45 colt that will do a much better job and more accurately as well. Have fun and be careful. ....I have not done this, so my figures may be off some.

    Exactly what I was thinking. I shoot a lot of slugs during deer season and in getting ready for deer season. (Granted, I don't deer hunt with a .410.) Any slug in comparision to a .45LC, I see nothing but disadvantage. The .45LC is more than ample to get the job done.
    1. Muzzle Controll: Always point in a safe direction
    2. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    3. Keep it unloaded until ready to use.
    4. Know your target and what is beyond.


    There is nothing so rewarding as to make people realize that they are worthwhile in this world.

    I use Winchester 41 shot cups when loading 444 Marlin cases with heavy shot for use in a 2.5" judge. Works well and the brass cases don't swell so they drop right out after firing.

    Do you use a slight roll crimp with a cardboard over card? Sounds interesting.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.
