What ammo do you carry for you ccw in a 410?
Good points. The PDX seems like a pretty good concept, and the ballistics gel results are good, but it's hard to make any recommendation with so little data. Has anyone ever been shot with .410 PDX? I honestly don't know.Good article here: Taurus Judge Ammunition: Feeding the Judge
Given your choices, I elect "none of the above." If forced to choose, I'd go with the Win PDX.
None of the choices seems to be a devastating round. Bird shot, I can state from personal experience, is NOT. The slug is interesting, but the heaviest rifled slug is only 1/4 oz or 109 grains, compared to a .45 Colt load of about 250 grains. The 000 buck sounds interesting, but not with just 4 pellets. What's not listed here is the Federal 3" load with #4 buck, with 9 pellets at 950 ft/sec. Push me into a corner to use a shotshell round, that's what I'd pick.
Agree. And if it's a shotty, I would think just about anything other than birdshot would be sufficient.If it's one of the .45/.410 revolvers I'd skip the .410 completely and carry a good .45 Colt semi-wadcutter load. While it'd be a bummer to be shot with any of those choices offered, none of them give me the warm, fuzzy feeling of possessing truly effective self-defense goodness compared with a standard big-bore revolver round.
I'm pretty sure most Judges and other .410/.45LC revolvers don't accept 3" shells... just 2.5"What's not listed here is the Federal 3" load with #4 buck, with 9 pellets at 950 ft/sec. Push me into a corner to use a shotshell round, that's what I'd pick.
correct.I'm pretty sure most Judges and other .410/.45LC revolvers don't accept 3" shells... just 2.5"
I could be wrong
Nmuskier, none of the above wasn't a choice. neither were the five other calibers you mentioned.None of the above. This is the bastardized child of an old, nearly forgotten defensive caliber and a niche hunting gun for youth hunters and fairer hunters in skirts.
Stick with a .45LC or a 20ga. slug. If you can haul around a hunk of revolver that big, why not carry a .357, .41, or .44?
Carrying a firearm for self defense does not make you a man. Neither does carrying caliber X. Certain rounds are simply ineffective defensive rounds...but that wisdom has already been posted by several members. Sorry I offered an opinion on an opinion poll.now i know what calibers to load into my 410 derringer that would make me more manly
