That will be interesting I have the Judge in a 4" bbl. and I was suprised how it shot the
45 long colt. It grouped good with the 2.5" Remington Sluggers but not the Winchesters.
I didn't try the new Winchester defense loads yet. It shoots 6's good but spreads out a lot with 4's. Your tests will be interesting.

Hey Jon,

I hope to get to the range soon with the Public Defender Ultra-Lite and the shells from Federal, Remington and Winchester plus the .45 LC and see how it does. That may be just a while. It's 10 degrees here currently with really bad winds and it look like that may the "good" weather here for the next several days.

I'll let you know as soon as I have some results.

Thanks,
Clark

I have been able to shoot the Public Defender Ultra-Lite for the last 3 days with the Federal, Remington and Winchester .410 shotshells. I'm learning a lot about this gun and how it patterns. It is very consistent and once you shoot it a few times and learn how to hold it properly, the recoil is very manageable.

I hope to shoot some .45 Long Colt shells through it soon to see how it does with those as well.

So far, I'm very pleased with what I'm seeing.

I'll let you all know when I've completed my evaluation.

Thanks,
Clark

I had thought that my evaluation of the new Taurus Ultra-Lite was getting close to conclusion with the exception of trying it with a new "carry holster" but then I was made aware of another new shell designed for that revolver. Now I have some DUPO 7 .410 ammo on the way. It sure looks interesting and we'll see how it works in this light 2" barreled revolver.

Thanks,
Clark

Hi Clark

T hat is a nice article on the Public Defender , basically I got the same results with the Judge they are good shooters. I was somewhat amazed with the 45 colt I just didn't think it would be that accurate. I am not impressed with the Winchester defense load but like the Federal #4. Tarus has a winner there it is very versitale revolver.
Thanks
Jon

Thank you all for the positive comments. I spent a lot of time with the PD Ultra-Lite and really enjoyed shooting it.

Thanks again
