    You can run any 2.5 inch shell you want. However I suggest keeping the FPS below 1200, I usually will run 1150FPS 2.5 inch as my max. Its best to use the shotshells made for revolvers. Federal,Winchester,Hornady all make Judge type of shells with FPS's below 900 FPS. The Federal 000 buck is an excellent and usually accurate load out of a Judge. Two factors to consider:

    perceived recoil - how much damage to your wrist. Once you get above 1150 that recoil can leave your hand a buzzin
    High brass or high speed may eventually damage the revolver, this is not proven to me personally, just rumors on the interwebs.

    Thanks for the advice. I've been shooting the federal 410 handgun 000 2 &1/2 and tha hornady critical defense as well as the Aguila 45 colt 200 gr. Cowboy soft lead. So far it's been a blast, no pun intended. Lol

    I found Winchester Silvertips quite accurate in mine, when I owned it.

    I wouldn't think the brass hi/low would make a difference. I have heard to stay away from ribbed hulls though.., apparently they will stick in the cylinder after firing where smooth hulls won't??

    A 410 ga is designed to operate in the 10k to 11k psi range. All factory produced shells will adhere to this pressure spec. The Judge is designed to also shoot 45 Colt which had a higher operating pressure. Now it is recommended that you don’t shoot the hotter 45 colt loadings and best to stick to the Cowboy Action loadings for longer life of the hun. So any factory 2 1/2” 410 shells should shoot just fine.
