I have been researching data for The Judge loads using .444 Marlin brass and large pistol primers. As there is nothing published that I could find ...I just felt my way along sniffing it out as I went.
I have loads using #9 through 00 buck ; they all are short range defensive loads from snakes to to two footed variety that need to be floped on there belly.
The Judge isn't the one you are looking for to elemanate pests further than 10 ft with the light shot ; the 00 buck has the power a bit further out but with just 4 buckshot to the load that spreds quickly it is only good for larger game.
Hope this helps.
