5.0 Rating .410 fed. #4 - 2/8/2010
Reviewer: Great in smoothbore derringer
I use this load in my double barrel derringer, it's partialy smooth-bore and only has 1" of rifling so it holds a spread very well. At seven yards it held a pattern that was roughly 19" in diameter, which is pretty good for up-close. I don't have a judge but I'll tell you it works in a cobray Model DD or a Snake Slayer! Also the fact that it's copper plated makes penetration a little better too.

4.0 Rating Defense ammo, not pest control - 1/12/2010
Reviewer: Croz
This ammunition is designed specifically for the Judge for self-defense...against people. I own a judge for home defense and have range fired about 50 rounds of this load (The slightly smaller shot size allows for 4 pellets as opposed to the standard 3 in .410) The spread was very tight at 5 yards (about 3 inch diameter) and remained tight at 10 and 15 yards (roughly 6 inch spread). This ammo is designed to be fired in the hallways or rooms of a house at a human, not at a small slender snake, and does the job adaquately. Hopefully I will never have to use it but I am confident in its ability.

1.0 Rating #4 shot is pathetic - 1/6/2010
Reviewer: Still Teachin
"I tried the Federal #4 shot in my Judge, and it shot a pathetic pattern! The pattern at 10 feet is laughable...with a big whole in the center. Using shot for snakes or self defense is a close range deal, so I tried the Win. 7 1/2 shot, and I got respectable full patterns out to 10 feet or more. The "birdshot" really does tick off a rattler, as it takes the head clean off. The previous reviewer must not live where snakes are a defense issue, only car jacking. As a first close up shot, a load of 7 1/2 shot to the face is a mighty attention getting pain trip. Or use the Federal 000 buckshot load, ... I've patterened it close at 5 feet and out to 25 feet, and I rate it a 5 star defense load, with very tight patterns.

4.0 Rating Does it's intended job - 8/30/2009
Reviewer: bigntasty50
Had no problems with this out of my judge as far as spread goes. Shooting at 1-3 yards it kept a pattern inside the 9 ring. This ammo was designed for self-defense out of the judge, not shooting snakes. Loaded with this the judge makes an excellend car gun. I load my firt 2cylinders with this and the other 3 with .45s. For the other reviewer, Bird shot is a poor choice for self defense unless you just want to tick off whoever you are shooting at. But I load mine up with 7.5 shot when in snake territory. Gave this 4 stars because the empties still stick in the cylinder and you would think they would have fixed that since this load is designed to be shot out of the judge. Will be buyin more

1.0 Rating Not for the Judge - 8/1/2009
Reviewer: tree69
This is suppose to be made for the Judge. Well, do yourself a favor and get # 7 1/2 shot or smaller ... if you want any kind of tight pattern beyond 5 feet. For defense or snakes don't count on this load.
