    ok so I just bought a Ruger Super Redhawk in 44mag with a 7inc barrel I shot 20rnd of hornaday 225grn hornaday lever revolution through it it was not that bad

    but my question is who makes the hottest factory loads for the 44mag?

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Buffalo Bore..

    Heavy .44 Magnum +P+ Ammo - 340 gr. L.F.N. - G.C. (1,478 fps/M.E. 1,649 ft. lbs.)

    Straight from the website, and the test gun was a 7.5" Redhawk

    dont forget about double tap ammo

    their stuff is really hot also

    i carry the buffalo bore in my 40s&w, its a 180grain gold dot going at 1100fps. its a very powerful load thats for sure

    If you want the feeling of power, go with the hot heavy bullet loads.
    They really kick!

    I bought a Redhawk and reload the .44 mag on my RCBS Rock Crusher II single-stage press because the total caliber change over is expensive on my Dillon 650 and really 50 at a time is the most I'll ever shoot... speed of reload isn't important.

    I've been considering getting some of those really heavy bullets and working up the hardest recoiling load I can just for fun.

    If you don't reload, you might consider getting a single stage press and simple gear to get started. You will recoup your money in short order and it's fun.

    yea I been thinking of reloading but at this point and time is seems like its not worth it to track down primers and other components

    the guy that sold me the gun at Gander Mtn said ruger makes a reloading book and there loads are supose to be real hot he said the rugers can handle them fine

    Right now, primers and powder are a royal pain to get.. but in a few months I think it'll all be back to normal.

    The Super Redhawk is huge, there's no worry about it's ability to handle .44 mag hot loads. I have the regular Redhawk, put some big rubber grips on it and it's cool, baby! Whoo!!

    The other day we were shooting bowling pins in a 'race', the first person to hit a metal spinner was the winner. Well, I only was allowed to hit the spinner once, it messed it UP! HA!

    Really, consider reloading, the cost to feed a 44mag will break the bank. You don't have to hunt hard for components. You need 1000 LPmag primers & a pound of H110 or W296 or 2400 or AA#9 for nuclear loads. Any of the 250gr-310gr bullets are going to give you all the recoil you can handle & are pretty easily found. You can load 200grJHP to some impressive vel. & accompanied muzzle blast. A cheap Lee single stage press, good scale & powder measure (not Lee), Lee dies & some acc. will set you back about $150. It will be pretty slow, maybe 50rds/hr, but it's a 44mag, you aren't slamming 200rds per shooting session. That's what, l3ss than 5 boxes (100rds) of BB ammo.:shock:
    For factory, BuffaloBore is pretty hot & they have some super heavies, Heavy .44 Magnum +P+ Pistol & Handgun Ammunition no such thing as 44mag+p but it is a 340gr bullet loaded max. The Federal CastCore line is also hot. Federal Premium - Handgun Details The RSRH is a great gun but you can beat any handgun to early death shooting max loads all the time. I've done it w/ a RBH & it wasn't that many rounds, maybe 6K shooting met.sil. matches & practice + some serious varmint hunting sessions? The guy that sold you the gun probably never fired one more than a few rounds.:wink:
