I'm new to this forum and haven't found this particular issue yet. I just bought a blued Judge with 2 1/2 inch chamber. I had a box of Federal 000 buck and tried two of them out in the Judge. One of the empties was completely in half, as in the part that remained in the cylinder was about 1.25 inches long, the rest of the plastic was GONE. The second round had a definite ring at about the same point. Anyone else seen this. Wondering if the Judge normally has a forcing cone of some sort in the cylinder and maybe mine wasn't tapered correctly. Any help would be appreciated.
