Ruger Super Redhawk 480 7 1/2" tube w/ factory sights. The only game I've had walk in front of it during hunting season was a few spruce hens, they were very effectively taken with my plinker load, which consists of a 310 gr LFN over a small dose of red dot for 700 fps.
My big game load is currently a 460 gr WFN @ 1050 fps. Now if I can just get a legal moose to walk in front of it this fall :lol:

I'm sure that I've missed a few however these are some of the calibers and critters for me. As I've said in Sixgunner Mag. my goal is to take a deer with a different caliber or different bullet each year.
Short barrels long range!!
