I have owned Ruger revolvers in the past and was delighted with every one except a Security Six in .357 Mag. The gun was solid but too light for full power loads IMHO. Recoil was not pleasant. I am getting set to order a New Model Blackhawk in blue and 45 Colt caliber and a 5-1/2" barrel. I thought about a 7-1/2" for a while but have settled on the shorter version.
Based on comments I've read or heard I expect to be delighted with it. I am curious about pet loads that members have with 255 gr Keith style bullets. Any comments would be appreciated. thanks in advance.
