Several years ago a friend managed to blow up a Super Blackhawk 44 Mag. The ejector rod & cover was gone and the barrel was split from the frame to the front sight. He gave it to me because he didn't want to use it anymore. Through a local FFL I sent it back to Ruger asking for a quote to repair. Instead of a quote Ruger sent it back to me completely repaired, at no charge.
Since I had a 44 Mag, I naturally purchased a 4" Charter Arms 44 Spl. With time I determined that the Super Blackhawk wasn't for me. It just didn't fit my hand, so it went back to the original owner. That was 10+ years ago.
Since owning the 44 special I've tried several different bullet and powder combinations, but never settled on any particular load for the revolver. Yesterday I got to the range for a couple hours and shot groups with 4 different loads. Two loads each with 240Gr JHP and 215Gr LSWC. I don't think this revolver will ever have the consistent accuracy as my 357 or 454, so I'm picking one of the loads for each of the bullets and going with it.
