Decided I wanted to get a Heavy Caliber Revolver

Recommended Posts

Only one revolver in the house and its not even mine its hers. Plenty of SA's, decided I wanted one but didnt want to spend a lot of money, on recommendations found one of these on GunsAmerica and the guy was local.

Ruger Super Redhawk in .454 Casull, 7 1/2" barrel. Only problem I had was finding ammo for it. Off the shelf was able to get some 300gr, but wanted some of them 360gr Bear Loads, ordered some from online, still waiting.

Got a really good price on it, came with some lighter loads. Only about 12 rounds through it before I bought it.

Looks nice.
But I think I'll stick with my SW 625.
454 hurts my body too much [color=#ff0000]especially the wallet[/color]

Mine too. At nearly a buck fifty a round the thing costs more to shoot than .50 AE.

But remember it will also shoot .45 Long Colt ammo just as well. I am a big fan of the .454 its a great hunting round I have taken many hogs with mine over the years.

WOW. Now that's a hand cannon! I applaud any and all interest in huge handguns. That thing is a beast.

I sold my 7 1/2" Super Redhawk in 454  to a TGO member in the early spring with reloading dies and then bought a 9 1/2" Super Redhawk in 44 mag.

It is alot more plesant to shoot, rounds are cheaper, and has good knock-down power. When I was younger, I could take the heavier recoil.

Good luck with your 454!!!!!!!!!!!

Ive got the same revolver. Its a blast to pull out at the range, especially indoor ones. Gotta start reloading. I've been reloading mine with 250gr lead and it's not bad to shoot and doesn't hurt the wallet any.

There is a guy on one of our local Gun Sales FB Groups that has a Smith .500 Mag with a 14 inch barrel for sale. If Im going to go with a 14 inch barrel, before I buy a revolver that is as nearly as long as a carbine, Ill just buy a carbine.
