Yea! try sticking that Super Blackhawk in your front pocket though!380acp from my TCP ~ 150 ft-lb muzzle energy, $0.35/round
44mag from my SBH ~ 1400ft-lb muzzle energy, $0.54/round
Less than twice the cost for almost 10x the energy. Sounds like a good deal to me.
Oh, I dunno...I don't have any problem sticking my Super Blackhawk in my front pocket...ya jus' gotta have the right pocket for the tool...Yea! try sticking that Super Blackhawk in your front pocket though!
Thats why they make both phillips head and flat head screw drivers every tool has a purpose.
Just tried out my first 300 grain JHPs today, Hornady XTPs over 18 grains of H110. The Super Blackhawk shot them pretty good, but my 4" Tracker shot the best groups its ever shot with this load. My first 10 yard group was about 1" with two slugs going through the same 1/2" hole.I don't worry about having enough 44 mag. ammo, I roll my own. I use a Nosler 300gr HP for my hunting loads and a 240gr. lead truncated cone bullet for target shooting and I load these so I get the same reaction of the gun as with the 300gr. I always shoot at least 100 rounds during a range trip and sometimes I will send 200 down range. I can't wait until I can get a S&W 560VXR or a S&W 500. When I pull my 44SS8 out at the range, it gets a lot of attention and more when it goes off.
I use 20 grains of H-110 with the Nosler 300gr. HP and at 100 yards with the 8 3/8 inch barrel, it keeps them in a 4.5 inch group, most of the time. This is a 115% compressed load and it flies at 1402 FPS.Just tried out my first 300 grain JHPs today, Hornady XTPs over 18 grains of H110.

Yeah, 9sillymeter people all shut down and slink off when a "real gun" barks. Here's my real ammo comparison...
Serious question though: What does it cost you per shot?
I have a S&W M1917 .45 that i use a moon clip for because in my area , .45acp is anywhere from $.40 to $.60 a shot while .45 LC is about $1.60 to $2.00 a shot
Nice holster! And I have to agree about the 44mag. I know a guy with a 44mag (Colt Python, I think). When he handed it to me I thought, "I'm not going to like the recoil on this thing." I couldn't have been more wrong. The weight of the gun ate the recoil for breakfast! When we pulled out my S&W99 in 40S&W it had heftier recoil. Besides, whipping out a revolver that large will probably be enough to cause to the BG to go weak in the knees and faint, preventing you from having to shoot him/her.
