What brand of porting for 454 Casull

Was wondering if anybody had any good suggestions for porting a super redhawk in 9.5" barrel ? This gun shoots really nice with 45 lc ammo but flat out hurts my hand when shooting Hornady 300grain bullets....you definately know you just shot something.

Magna port worked fine for mine I got the twin port they also offer quad port If I remember right it was about 85.00 in 2002.

Thanks Robster.... I am assuming the porting has made the felt recoil less and the muzzle blast more?

The blast is a little more but does not seem bad when shooting at deer.Felt recoil was reduced quite a bit and made the blast worth it.

I pickt up this 7"SRH already mag-na-ported so I cant say how much it helped? What seams to work best in the beast is to download it to mid to low book, the accuracy is better and not one of the critters (whitetail buck,porkupine, a stripped squirrel, finishing off a goat and numerous prairie dogs) that have taken with it knew the difference I definatly lost a little more hearing when I finished off the antelope,the downward angle made me wish I had put in earplugs!!!


The load I used for the buck where just over 45lc max but blew him right off his feet!


Fullhouse loads are cool to hand to your friends but??????

All 3 of my Freedom arms are Magna ported. 2 are 454'2 and the 3'rd is in 50AE. I plan on having a 500 Wyoming Express cylinder made when a little more cash is avail.

I had the quad port done on my 454 SRH but wasn't very impressed with the recoil reduction. While the muzzle climb is reduced the recoil was still not acceptable. I don't think you can compare "ports" with "brakes". Brakes make a BIG difference in felt recoil.

Just my observation.
