I just got back from trying a couple of rounds. I shot some target 45 loads, .410 000 buckshot and express loads. The recoil wasn't bad at all plus the gun was dead on! I didn't really like the 000 buck, the grouping wasn't as tight as I expected. The 45 was just like like any other 45 revolver. But the gun really cam alive with the exspress loads!!! I really liked the 1-1/2 oz #4 shot.
The only drawback is the .410 shells are hard to eject. It's almost like the brass expands a little. I had to pick at the brass with my finger nail to find one that was loose enough to come out. Then once I got two out I could use the ejector. The express loads where a little easier to come out due to the brass being longer. Where the 000buck had a short brass and seemed to expand more.
I think I would have to keep the .45 colt rounds in the revolver. Unless I can find a good express load that I know would stop an intruder.
Edit: I went back the gunshop and tried to clear-up exactly which gun I bought. Come to find out I have the 2-1/2 chamber not the 3". I really wanted the 3" chamber but they seem to be hard to find and the price jumps-up a couple of hundred dollars.
