awesome. Some day I'll take the Super Redhawk 44 mag. What bullet/load are you using? Factory?


We saw plenty of horns this weekend. Passed a few we shouldn't have and screwed up on others. I'm trying to get mom a shot at a buck, therefore my binocs are up when my gun should be. Had 2 BIG ones get by because of that. Not gonna happen again...

Default .41 Load

I don't run too hot. I have used both the Hornady 210 gr XTP and the Remington 200 gr JHP on deer. This one was taken with the Remington bullet and was double-lung through-and-through. I have played with some hard-cast lead, but so far haven't found a good accuracy load with that. Used 18gr 2400 powder with CCI300, which generally grouped better than the CCI350. This is my 4th deer with a handgun, and it is definitely more of an adrenalin rush than most of my rifle shots - even on a doe. I've never recovered a bullet from this pistol on a deer.

I see you mention hard cast, then no accuracy load. I was preached to over and over that bullets should be hard. Well that is some what false. Hard will often skid, shearing off in the grooves. Once that happens it will only get worse until removed.
A softer alloy will bump up and tend to grab the rifling rather than shearing or tearing off.
Looks to be a DW wheel gun, I would still do some measuring of cylinder bore. I doubt you have any thread choke, but I would still check. On the DW I would check timing with a pin and make sure bore and cylinder are in alignment.

No reason it should not shoot cast as well as jacketed. Though on my 41's I have found some designs I am not a fan of, shoot extremely well. Designs I like or think should shoot, don't.

Are you using gas checks on your hard cast bullets ? Often that will make a difference in accuracy and cutting down on leading issues. I like gas checks on all my cast bullets. Bill K
