I too am curious about the range i can expect from my .454 Ruger Super Redhawk. Purchased a used one (7 1/2" magna ported barrel) right before I left for the deployment I am currently on. I only got to shoot it once and that was more novelty shooting, I didnt really get the time to spend with it that I wanted to. The recoil was not near as bad as i was expect and the action and trigger pull is like butter. I do expect great things from it when i get home.
I spoke to a couple of guides in Montanna who carried them (I didnt even know I needed one) much to the wife's disapointment.
Does anyone have any recomended loads for this beast? Certainly not a cheap rig to feed.
