Mine are in the safe so no pics. The one I've used the most is an open sight Ruger Red Hawk in .44 Mag. I've killed a truck load of animals with it - deer, bear, hogs and a javelina. Good fun!

BFR in 475 linebaugh and a ruger blackhawk in 45 colt. Of the two you listed i would definitely go with the 44. There is no replacement for displacement and up to about double the energy of the 10 don't hurt either. Also the fact that bullet profile is a non issue in a revolver is a plus

Dang it idk why they are upside down

I like it. It was my first handgun with a scope. I killed several deer with it before I stopped handgun hunting. I also have a Winchester Big Bore '94 in .375. Killed a bunch of deer and a few hogs with it. (Hogs weren't real prevalent in ET when I quit hunting with it) Now that I can't shoot a bow as well as I used to, I'm gonna get back into handgunning. Both SBHs are recent purchases. I still need to see which one I like best and I'll probably sell the other.

Revolver is generally the better choice. If you handload the 45 colt in a strong action such as the Blackhawk is a good option to the .44 mag.

I just ordered a S&W 460XVR with a 14in barrel with a break. It should be in early next week. I'm looking for a good pistol scope for it. Any advise? I'm thinking a magnified fixed power so I can extend the range and see better when release the hand cannon.

One of the most interesting hunting pistols I have ever had the opportunity to shoot was a custom barreled Encore with a 15 inch barrel with brake, in .375 H&H Magnum Ackley Improved. I had already owned an Encore barrel in .45/70 in a 15 inch, without a brake and found it pretty easy to reach obnoxious level, especially with 500 grain grain cast bullets approaching 1500 fps. But my friend already had handloads with 270 and 300 grain bullets, and since I had a chronograph and a shooting range at my place, I was elected as guinea pig... That pistol delivered the goods.. 2650 fps. with his 270 grain handloads and a solid 2605 average for the 300's! That is almost the same as the standard .375H&H out of a rifle length barrel. And the recoil wasn't nearly as obnoxious as my own .45/70 unbraked barrel with top loads. It seemed the big .375 Improved had enough pressure remaining at the muzzle to really make that brake work. You could tell the brake was doing it's job, as empty cartridge sleeves would be blown off the bench, and you could feel your cheeks ripple a bit at each squeeze of the trigger. We only shot the gun at 50 yard targets through the chronograph, but the loads would stay in about an inch, with the 2x scope we had on it. Not sure what the set up weighed, but he was probably producing around 1000 ft. lbs. of energy per pound of pistol weight, as the 300 grain loads were making some 4500 ft. lbs of muzzle energy. The downside to the gun was the absolute necessity of wearing some kind of hearing protection in the field, even for one shot! I am not sure who made that barrel for him, but I believe either SSK or Bullberry.

I sat at the bench for a minute, looking at those cartridges, and back at the pistol. I'd shot some pretty good sized hardware before, but not like that. I thought I might have an out -of- body experience or even catch a fleeting glimpse of Elvis when I squeezed the trigger...And it did recoil, but not like I thought it would. About like a .454 Casull.

What ammo do you 10mm shooters like to hunt with?


I shoot Underwood Ammo, either 200 grain XTP or 220 grain hardcast. Both perform great on deer and pigs.

I do have some 155 grain Barnes XPBs loaded up but have yet to find the time to try them out.

Need to add this one to the mix since we are talking 10mm.

GP100 6Ē converted to 10mm. This was before Ruger introduced any of their current 10mm revolvers.

So I have been reading up on the pistol scopes and I seem to be leaning more toward a fixed power and away from the variable power scopes. Those of you with the variable power scopes... does the eye relief really get too close to the gun when its zoomed in? Do any of yall have experience with the Leupold FX-II 4x28? I know Leupold is good glass and a good company just wondering how the 18in eye relief is on a pistol. Price is around $400 which is good with me as well.

I have a Nikon Monarch 2.5-8 on a TC Encore. It sucks. The eye relief does change with increase in magnification and the field of view SUCKS.

I have no experience with the Leupold you mentioned.
