Loads for 44 ruger redhawk
I own a ruger redhawk that I bought about 10 years ago I carry the gun while fishing and hiking in Alaska for protection.
I have only shot a few boxes of ammo thru it and they are 240 grain winchester magnum jsp the recoil is very unpleasant.
The gun had wood grips on it when I bought it and I changed them to rubber butler creek grips looking to reduce the effects of the recoil of the gun.
I want to start practicing regularly, and was considering buying the ruger gp100 and shooting 38 loads thru it thinking that I would use it to practice with but then carry my 44 when in the woods.
A friend recently suggested that I try 44 special loads in my gun instead and that the recoil with those loads would be about the same as the 38s in the gp100.
Any input or info will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
