It was a good time. I didn't video it all, but that same trip is the one where we sawed down a tree w/ shotguns and blasted melons, eggs, water jugs, a ceramic coated steel sink (that was fun w/ .45 and slugs), and damn near anything else we thought would look cool when it was hit.
I have to admit, I was surprised what a .22 LR HP would do to a melon. I was thinking we'd put a few holes in it with the .22 and then finish it off with bigger stuff. It exploded when the .22 hit it.

Good times.

Yes it is. The other day some buddies and I were shooting clay pigeons, and I tried hitting them with the judge. I didn't hit one, but it was fun nonetheless.

Safe in the water...

Just when I thought it was safe to go back in the water you're confronted with a new reality... Is this really the bloke they modeled the comic guy on?! Please tell me it's a Photoshop thing...

Taurus Judge and POI

This might raise some eyebrows.

In a pistol with a short, fixed barrel, a heavier and slower projectile will impact the target higher than a light, fast projectile. Recoil begins as soon as the bullet (or shot) begins to move forward. The heavier the bullet, the more recoil, which causes muzzle rise. The longer it takes for the bullet to clear the barrel, the higher the muzzle. Thus the POI will be higher at average pistol shooting distances. So, your fastest projectile will impact lower than the slowest most of the time.

Maybe SJMB will let us know which load was shooting high and which were lower.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

Vaq, great info

I really appreciate that. I didn't know. I thought the recoil started as the gases exited the barrel (i.e. after the projectile was on its way). I will test some more and try to recall (bad memory) from before and let you know.

Loads and POI

I want to say that the 000 buck was the closest to my point of aim. It seemed the Win PDX 410 and slugs were high as was the .45 Colt LFN, which would sound about right. The PDX was roughly the same the payload, but it could have been slower. Then again, it could have been the shooter. :) The slugs were relatively light and but I am pretty sure they were rather low velocity. The .45 were Cowboy action, so definitely heavy and slow, and those were the highest.

One other thing I've since discovered, apparently shooters used to semis tend to grip a revolver too high and due to this, tend to shoot high. I will try gripping it lower and see if it changes things.

Just a guess

Just a guess, but I don't think that barrel was blown off. It looks like someone forgot "righty/tighty" or didn't have/use a torque wrench.

Ah, darwinism

:) .454?! And he didn't notice? Well, I guess he noticed after the barrel blew. I guess that's the problem with allowing the .410 chambering. The little safety measures like lengthening the case to prevent chambering in a .45 Colt pistol was defeated. Still, a person has to rely on their own sense, regardless.
