Ruger Super Blackhawk Bisley Hunter in .44 mag.

Arrived today at the gun store and could not be more excited. My first revolver after a lot of research and trying some out and one that I do plan on genuinely hunting with. Picked up a box of hornady leverevolutions which I know do more than enough on hogs (use the same bullet on my .45-70).

Any recs for some whitetail/red stag cartridges? Would also appreciate recs for some good plinking ammo be it a toned down .44 mag or .44 spl

It’s hard to beat those Rugers. Pistol hunting is very fun and rewarding. I’ve killed deer with 45ACP from a Kimber, 45Colt from a Ruger Blackhawk, 460XVR from a S&W. 22 LR from a Ruger MK1 on rabbits, squirrels, and coyotes.

My go-to hunting bullet is a cast semi wad cutter 315 grain from my 460XVR. We keep it around 2150fps.

That's a sweet setup. When it comes to revolvers, Ruger is King. Sorry, I know nothing about loading for 44 mag.

Unique and 240 grain cast bullets makes a nice plinking load. Get on single action forum lots of good information on that site.

Very nice.
Time to start reloading.
I'll look up and share my plinking load data tomorrow.

240 Grain cast bullets with Unique can be loaded soft to .44 Special levels (750-800 fps) or near max/max to duplicate factory ballistics (around 1300 fps).

The load I shot in .44 Magnums for years is a 240 Hornady XTP, 23.0 H110 (about a grain under maximum but still gets over 1400 fps from a 7.5 inch barrel), Winchester brass and CCI 350 primers. This load has taken one deer with a 7.5 inch Ruger Redhawk and two hogs from a 7.5 inch Ruger Super Redhawk. With open sights and younger eyes lol this load will put six rounds into 3.5-4 inches at 100 yards with open sights and 2.5-3 inches at 100 yards with a 4x Leupold scope.

Please follow all safe reloading practices.

Just my .02,
LeonCarr

Beauty for sure and great shooter.

Too many motocross crashes did in my wrists and it got to the point I couldn't enjoy mine so I had to let it go.

Nice Looking Pistola!

for the masses.....
Does the Leverrevolution ammo shot in a revolver length barrel get full burn?

The reason I ask is I shot a doe with 45lc Lever revolution out of a 3" judge at ~15 yards a few years ago and it's didn't perform well at all.
I found her dead, but only by Gods grace and a little luck- she went a good ways and was layed up in high grass upon finding her.
One hole in, no hole out.
I always wondered if it was the ammo's fault since the LeverRevolution is most likely designed to be shot out of ....lever action rifles.
( I would assume rifle powder for rifle length barrels).

I would look at hornady’s website. The .225 gr FTX ballistics were tested out of a 7.5” barrel which indicates revolver length. I was told once you go under 4” barrels, your chances for not getting a full burn go up regardless of the ammo you’re shooting (this context was referring to .44 mag, so not sure about other calibers)
