Some Gun Pix
by L. Neil Smith
Here's a target I shot offhand (standing) with the Ruger "Superized" Blackhawk in June of 1987 -- an incredible 18 years ago. (Time flies whether you're having fun or not.) This sixgun has always been a very straight shooter. I starred out the specific load because it's in the .44 Magnum power range and could turn a Colt or some other lesser weapon to shrapnel. Check the wonderful Lyman cast bullet reloading manual for more specific information.
The bullet is rated at 255 grains but actually weighs 265 grains with this particular alloy. It does _not_ have a gascheck. It's the one I shot a deer with in the back of the head. Shockingly effective.
