    I put my pinky under the grip. You will get used to it, and I think it provides a more stable consistant grip. I can shoot both the plow handle and the bisley accurately, but for heavy loads I prefer the bisley. Make sure you check your throats. I haven’t seen one yet that were correct from the factory. I love my single action Rugers, but they usually take a little tweaking to get them just right.

    Very nice...someday I may trade my Redhawk 44 Mag for a 45lc. I love the big bore...but the magnum is hard on my hands...and these hands are getting older now.

    redhawk

    The only stupid question...is the unasked one.


    Not all who wander....are lost.

    Yep, the Winchester 255 lead bullet is stated at about 850 FPS. You can go to about 9-950 within colt pressures with that bullet or lymans 454190. Plenty of power for most needs. True that be told I shoot far more lee 45-200 RF at 700 FPS with 700X powder in my colt cowboys with 5 1/2” barrels as that is my cowboy action load and it still knocks cans flying. Oh and very easy on the hands with recoil.

    Check and see if a .452" boolit will go through the cylinder throats..
    Got a .22 .30 .32 .357 .38 .40 .41 .44 .45 .480 or .500 S&W cylinder that needs throat reaming? 9mm, 10mm/40S&W, 45 ACP pistol barrel that won't "plunk" your handloads? Shoot me a PM! Also on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Cylinderhone-756429174391912/
