went shooting today

put a 100 rounds thru my Ruger Superblack Hawk.44 magnum and 1/2 that thru my 1895S Marlin lever action,shooting pumpkins.My impression:

I never want to be on the receiving side of a 44magnum bullet.

The Ruger is going to get a port job.The Marlin rifle kicks ass.

Lucky, if I may ask, where do you get your .44mag ammo? Do you reload it? It's as expensive as heck. I finally found some .44 special to practice with, thought it would be a lot cheaper. It really isn't that much cheaper.

Thanks lucky. I'll go look at my local wally world for some. I guess the good thing is, a .44 mag is a gun that I don't really want to shoot a lot anyways. LOL.

i was getting the crap kicked out of me shooting that SBH,I have hesitated to get the barrel ported but not anymore,my dan wesson was ported and shot like a dream.

survey question : Taurus double action 44 mag tracker or S&W double action 44.mag mountain gun? Taurus was 400 (used) the S&W 625.00 ( used) asking price.both 4" barrels,stainless,black hogue grip

44 Mag

I have an Astra 44 mag with a 2 1/2 inch barrel in stainless with pachmayr grips, and I love it. But You can't beat the Taurus guarantee.

It's a DPMS with an AWESOME scope on it and the collapsible stock, used to belong to J3t3rArmy. I've actually thought about going to shoot straight to see what their place is like and check out their selection. Worth the trip?

Thanks! Definitely something I'm going to look in to. Funny, I was in Tampa today, but it was for work.

Lucky almost thought you were talking about me! did the same but only 60 through the Blackhawk 30-.45 LC and 30- .45 acp the Marlin I have is a 1895SS in .45-70 one of my favorites to shoot.
Matty hope you have better luck then me, also just picked up a Colt LEM4 guess I need to do some more cleaning and lube, had trouble with FTF single shot it though and 11" group at 100yds with the factory open sights! thought that was OK for the first time out. Really need to get set up on some optics thinking about a reddot any sugestions?

Hell yeah, Lucky!

A Ruger No. 1 in .45-70 would be awesome! I've never fired one before, but I don't think it would be as bad as you would think. Like the .45 Colt, it was made as a black powder round, so they have to keep the pressures at that to keep from blowing up older guns.

.45-70

Marlin 1895SS 4+1 in chamber, Don't have the big loop yet but did put on some Williams peep sights. Wouldn't want to shoot it all day only has about 3/16" pad, and pretty punishing for an old fart like me, but I love it! I'll post a few pix when I get this pix thing figured out!
