410 -- 425 grainers at 1200 fps!! That's a penetrating SOB!

Man I love that New Model Blackhawk .41. I have had two. The first one was when I was stationed at Fort Greely, Alaska. It made the deciding difference on one ocassion when I was faced off with a wounded bear. I friend of mine shot it with a 30-30 and pissed it off.

The .41 mag is a great round and it doesn't get better that a Ruger platorm for the money! Good choice!

Here's my new/old hog iron. It's a Ruger Super Redhawk that started life as a .480 Ruger (I bought it new in '01) and I took a couple of hogs with it. Fast forward to last week when I got it back from Jack Huntington sporting a five-shot .475 Linebaugh cylinder. Haven't taken any pigs with it yet, but it's a handful with 420 grain LFNs at 1400 fps!!

That is a lot of gun. I have been onsidering a Taurus Judge for a field gun. With the 410, it would be a great snake gun.

The Judge is very cool!

I like these large caliber handguns. Big, heavy bullets penetrate like there is no tomorrow!

I like the Idea too....... mostly because of the 410/45LC option. Get the best of both worlds.
