Really enjoy shooting mine, haven't reloaded for it yet. Using Wolf I had problems with fired cases sticking in the cylinders. A bit of polishing fixed that and now it shoots whatever I stuff in it.
rugerguy, It would be an interesting read to see that whole article.

yes, I too wanted to 'see/read' more but alas both Fred and Marsha are gone and he had sent me the pic, guess the shot was from a copy of the Stars & Stripes??? I knew a guy from GE where I worked was an Army Sgt Major and his buddy carried a Ruger .44 Mag Super Blackhawk back in Khe Sanh even earlier........Fred, my Seabee friend was assigned to the Marines at Dong Ha , about 6 miles from the DMZ when they blew up the ammo dump, and that made the front page of the Stars & Stripes, he got out with only the clothes he was wearing. He ran a dozer and cleared landing zones, again may he and all those guys ( and gals) RIP..........Still looking,waiting to hear, for my friend Dale Pearce from here in Mentor ,Ohio he is MIA.........W1 U.S.Army May 17,1971........:(

may they ALL Rest In Peace..........


:cool:;)
Don’t remember you posting that before, thanks. Only in country pictures I have seen with Rugers were quoted as .44 magnums. The .30 carbine Blackhawk makes much more sense as all the free ammo available. Yes, may they all rest in piece.
