    Taurus has a machined shoulder/flange on the inside of the chamber to prevent a fool from doing something like that.

    When I had a Judge years ago I tried to chamber a fired 460 S & W case in it. No way would it work for either the 454 Casull or the 460.

    By design a .460 cartridge should not fit in that gun.

    But if you somehow managed to get one to fit, no. . .you wouldn't want to pull the trigger.

    Incidentally, I see little point to this gun. You'll get better accuracy and handling from a conventional .454 revolver, and if you choose to load it with "snakeshot", you'll have ample medicine for snakes.

    "BTW, what is "snakeshot"?"


    Snakeshot is simply a type of cartridge that is normaly used in handgun and/or rifle, but configured to shoot "shot", (small BB's, if you will), as the projectiles... same as a shotgun, instead of a single, solid bullet.

    Use Google Image to see what they look like.

    The word snakeshot comes from being useful, especially in a handgun, to shoot snakes, instead of lugging around a shotgun in rattler country.
