I just got my 454 a couple days ago and I noticed a small scratch/nick in the barrel close to the forcing cone. It looks like tooling marks. And I also noticed the barrel is a little rough at the muzzle. Am I worrying for nothing? I shot 3 boxes at the range the other day and it functioned flawlessly. I think my OCD is kicking in because this is my dream gun and I am over worring for nothing. I attached 2 pics. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I don't know anything about OCD, or the issue that you are questioning. But, it you went to the range and fired 3 boxes of .454 Casull ammunition through your new pistol, then you have earned my respect. As well as your Taurus Man Card.

Did you feel the need to soak your had in ice afterwards?

I think if I were to shoot a .454, I could only manage about 1 round per day....:unsure:...prob'ly take that long to pick myself up, dust myself off and walk the several miles back to the range.

You made me go look at my .454. Two OCDs should never be on the same thread. Your barrel groves look different and I'm not sure if I see the scratch that you are talking about. Your muzzle end is rougher than mine but mine isn't perfectly smooth either. How did it shoot? I have mine hitting 1/2" high at 25 yards and I usually shoot a box of 20, 260 gr flat soft points. Welcome to the forum..:)

My dad had me shoot his 44 magnum when I was 10 years old, I have been obsessed with big bore revolvers ever since lol I LOVE the recoil of my RB 454. Didnt hurt my hand one bit.

And thank you! I'm glad to be here!

It shot and functioned pretty good. Also the tiny nick/gouge that I am referring to is in the barrel a little ways in from the forcing cone. And thank you!

It doesn't look like anything to worry about. The groove and top of the land is probably a chip that was rolled by the rifling broach.

I'd watch that spot in the bore for leading or copper fouling, and unless it gets problematic then it's not a problem (is that brilliant, or what!?). As for the crown, it's not great but if it shoots well I'd say it's not worth doing anything about. Just enjoy your amazing revolver!
