So what about this? Ideally I'd get a Ruger Redhawk 4" in .45 Colt for my hiking sidearm. But I don't reload and factory ammo is really expensive, expecially since I'd like to use full power loads when at the target range. Am I correct in seeing that it is easier to find full power .44 Magnum ammo for a reasonable price? Or must I look towards .357 Magnum? I don't like the idea of using two different loads, one for the range and one "for real". And if I go for a GP 100, will that (with proper shot placement) do more than make a black bear angry? Thanks!
