Rey,

If I may ask, what grips do you have on your Redhawk? Pachmayrs?
How do you like them?


THEY ARE PACHMAYRS, UGLY AS HELL BUT THEY WORK VERY GOOD! I CANNOT HANDLE REGULAR RUGER GRIPS WITH HEAVY KICKERS.


Thanks! I am shopping around for a good somewhat compact revolver for carrying in grizz country and hadn't seen or held a redhawk with that grip

GOT IN GOOD PRACTICE SESSIONS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY MORNINGS, 10-15mph QUARTERING CROSSWINDS FROM THE SE YESTERDAY AND FROM THE NW THIS MORNING. HIT THE 6.5 INCH SWINGER AT 105 YARDS, WITH THE SCOPED 353 OFF A REST 31 OUT OF 33 SHOTS YESTERDAY AND 29 OUT OF 32 TODAY, SOME "SHOOTER ERROR" ON THE MISSES. TOOK ALL THE OFF HAND SHOTS WITH THE MODEL 353 AND 83 SCOPED FA REVOLVERS SITTING. ALSO SHOT MY BACK-UP LINEBAUGH REDHAWK 45 COLT OFF HAND STANDING AND PLINKED WITH MY "PERFECTED" 22 RUGER SINGLE SIX. FOR THE REDHAWK I HAVE A GREAT 260 CAST WFN LOAD DOING AROUND 1,250fps THAT IS EASY SHOOTING AND VERY ACCURATE BUT I AM EXPERIMENTING WITH A 265 SWIFT AFRAME AND A CUSTOM FURY 260gr FP FMJ OVER 26grs OF 296. WAITING FOR GOOD WEATHER TO SHOOT 'EM ON PAPER AND CHRONY THEM. GOING TO MY RANCH TOMORROW, WILL BE CARRYING THE REDHAWK, WITH THE 260 WFN's, IN A CHEST HOLSTER.

GOT IN A PRACTICE SESSION YESTERDAY (4/19/19) IN THE AFTERNOON, CLEAR, SUNNY, SLIGHT WIND, 88 DEGREES. SHOT THE 260gr FMJ FP FURY BULLET OVER 26grs OF 296 OUT OF MY BACKUP 5 1/2 INCH LINEBAUGH 45 COLT REDHAWK, OFF A REST, ON PAPER @ 25 YARDS. FIRST 3 SHOT GROUP WAS 1 1/8 INCHES CENTER TO CENTER, SECOND 3 SHOT GROUP HAD 2 SHOTS 1 1/4 INCH CENTER TO CENTER AND A HIGH FLYER (I FIGURE SHOOTER ERROR INDUCED BY THE "HIGH SKY"). A SNAPPY LOAD BUT WITH EASY EXTRACTION. WILL TRY A FEW MORE TODAY AND/OR TOMORROW, AND IF THEY GROUP IN THAT 1 1/4 INCH RANGE I THINK I WILL GO WITH THIS LOAD FOR MY BLACK BEAR HUNT. I HAVE PLENTY OF THE FURY BULLETS, WHICH I HAD CUSTOM MADE WITH THIS APPLICATION IN MIND, SO I MIGHT AS WELL USE THEM. MY PLAN IS TO TRY AND HEAD SHOOT ANY CHARGING BEAR, SO I PRACTICE OFF HAND WITH THIS REVOLVER @ 25 YARDS ON AN 8 INCH GONG.

ALSO DID SOME NORMAL PRACTICE WITH THE MODEL 353, AND SHOT MY HUNTING TWIN OF MY 2 MNP 8 3/8ths INCH 454 STALKERS WITH MY 2017 BARNES BUSTER RELOADS AND WITH SOME NEW BARNES BUSTER RELOADS. BOTH LOADS (F-A CASES WITH 30.3grs OF 296, AND STARLINE CASES WITH 30.4grs OF 296) HAD SOME MINOR STICKY EXTRACTION. I AM NOT EXPECTING 88 DEGREE WEATHER IN ALASKA BUT I THINK I WILL BACK OFF TO 30grs. AT 50 YARDS, OFF A REST, THE STARLINE CASES LOAD GROUPED 3 SHOTS IN 2 1/8th INCHES, WHILE THE F-A LOAD GROUPED 3 IN 3 INCHES. I WAS USING A 2X SCOPE ON A SMALL ORANGE DOT. END OF THE DAY, I BELIEVE THE LOAD WILL BE PLENTY ACCURATE AT 50 YARDS.
