Hello everyone. I don't live in Alaska (reside in Minnesota), but found this site while reserching the possible purchase of a .454 Ruger SBH. I'm considering buying a .454 Ruger SBH 7.5" Currently I shoot a SW .357 mag 6" very well and want to step up in power. I looked at various 44mags, but I'm thinking to jump right up to the .454 becasue I can always use .45 Colt or load light .454 rounds. I also like the looks of the Ruger .454 too. Since I have not found a gun range that rents the .454, the only comparison I can make is to the SW 329 .44 mag which for me was miserable to shoot with full house loads. My first shot with the 329 was a bullseye at 25yds and after that I just manage to keep the shots on the paper! The next week was a little better.
For those that have shot both, how does the .454 Ruger SBH and the SW 329 lightweight .44 mag compare in recoil with hot loads for each?
Thanks for the help!
