Skip by the BATF crap and make a 700NE revolver that only shoots crimped "snake" shot 700's. Its kind of ridiculous to think about these low performance "feel safe" guns. At close range you still have to be on target, at range over 20' they are useless.
Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it.

Xfive google Magnum Research BFA 410/45. It probably has the cylinder look you want. It would be much cheaper to buy one of those than have a bunch of custom work done on a Taurus

Find an antique webley .577 revolverand make up some shot loads.

Those are some honking big revolvers. The best manstopper of the 19th century.

One might bore out a .500 S&W if the cylinder walls are thick enough. Probably have to have a cylinder built and the frame relieved to allow it to fit. The barrel should be large enough in diameter to bore out.
Short case 28 gauge brass shells would probably be needed.

Thanks TennJed, but I already have a bfr in 45/70 gov. It's a midget compared to taurus raging judge magnum. And by the way I don't care how many bucks i waste on my taurus. I'll get unfluted cylinder titanium nitride plating wood grips and/or ivory grips.

Wait what? BFR 45/70 is tiny?!
E-Shock rounds are engineered to expend maximum energy into soft targets, turning the density mass into an expanding rotational cone of NyTrilium matrix particles, causing neurological collapse to the central nervous system.- Yeah I can do that.
