the .454 casull is avery powerful round, Taurus/rossi makes a version, the raging judge, that shoots the .451 casull, never attempt to shoot that casull round thru a gun not specifically chambered to shoot THAT round, else, failure WILL occur and you may be killed. Only shoot that round if the piece notes it on the barrel or frame as one of the rounds the gun accepts. Do not shoot it thru a Judge or a Circuit Judge not chambered specifically chambered for it, just cause it may "load" does not mean it is a good idea to shoot!
My gosh, no! The 454 Casull projectile is a specialty projectile designed not to MELT in the air, which the normal .45LC would do were it fired with as much power as the 454. In fact, I wonder whether the 454 cartridge actually fits the same breech as do the .45LC and .410 'gauge' cartridges. (?) There are yet more/many more things that could be said about this regarding the strength of the metals in a mere 45LC compared to a 454 Casull firearm; but perhaps it makes more sense to be in touch with Mr. Baker at Freedom Arms, Freedom, WY, from whom and in the company of whom I learned directly -- about the 454 and other products throughout the entire Freedom Arms operation -- some years ago.
