I purchased my judge on Feb. 21 , 2014 and shot 20 rounds of Winchester PDX1 and had no problem . I would recomend this gun for concealed carry.

I have the 6.5 inch Judge Stainless, fired for the first time today. The 410 rounds lock up with #7,8, 6 Shot. can not get the expended rounds out have to take a rode and push out from open end. Not a real happy camper at this time, I cleaned the pistol prior to taking to range, I was using RIO and Remington ammo will try other brands to see if they have the same effect. Shot 20 rounds of reload bullets which I did my self, at was hitting pie place at 30 yards, could not believe the shot group at 30 at 15 yards was shooting high and right about 4 inches.
Stainless, 3 inch Chamber. Locks up with .410 shot shells. It's been back to Taurus for this problem. Failed after 5 shots. Taurus is very hard to reach, put on hold or have to leave messages then no call back. I know two other owners that have given up on the Judge after multiple returns.
Taurus Judge is an excellent performer. I was very surprised at the limited recoil considering it fires a 45 & 410. Very comfortable to shoot. Don't expect a long range capability however. I would say that about 15 feet would be the max for good accuracy with the 45. Then again, the 410 will change the attitude of any assailant even if employed at a bit greater range. All in all I think it is ideal for a self defense weapon.
