Just bought a Ruger Super Red Hawk. SS and 7-1/2 inch,

I need load development info for paper punching and hunting (deer).

I need powder and bullet recommendations. Does anybody shoot this handgun and what weight bullet does it seem to prefere?

I am new to this caliber but plan to chance this.

300 XTP

I'm using the Hornady 300 XTP in my not-Super Redhawk and crimping in the lower cannelure for an OAL of 1.720, if I 'members correctly. The long Ruger cylinder will accommodate a round of 1.8" or so and loading this long gives me enough case capacity to use IMR 4227.

I like 4227 because 296 can be hard to ignite at -20. Kinda bulky, though.

Whats up with this guy?????

What's up with comments like this????? The fellow made a mistake and forgot to mention the caliber. I see comments like this all the time from ricciardelli. Whats up with this crap? Are you like the biggest jerk ever or what? People come to these sites to ask a question or share something with other people, not to ask an honest question and be ridiculed by some guy that thinks he's the world's gift to reloading. Greybeard has a nice site and people like you are the ones that give first comers the wrong impression and make them not return so do us all a favor and lighten up and try and be helpful or just read on and don't comment.

On a brighter note, Happy Hunter, My old Super Redhawk seemed to prefer the heavier bullets rather than the 240's. Using the 300 grain XTPs, I crimped on the lower groove as well to gain a little case capacity and velocity. You can email me and I'll send you the loads I tried with that bullet when I get home to my other computer. Another bullet that it really shot well was a 270 grain Gold Dot. This bullet seemed to work pretty well when my buddy shot coyotes with it. I never did actually shoot a deer with it though. Like I said, email me and I'll be glad to look up the loads when I'm at home. But if I read one of your other post right, you took this gun back? If I'm wrong, just yell at me later. GS
