Good point, I totally forgot to mention that. diggs, if I can call you that, is absolutely right about the different "types" of recoil. I notice that with my 44 magnums that the heavier the bullet the more "torque" you feel. You and actually feel the the weapon twist in your hand as you fire. If I am remembering correctly what you are actually "feeling" is the bullet traveling through the rifiling. The heavier the bullet the more you feel. For example, I shoot some 44 magnum 340 grain +P+ Buffalo Bore loads though my Redhawk once and a while, just for the heck of it, and I can feel the grip twist counter-clockwise if my grip on the weapon is not firm enough.

That's what they usually do call me. . . on a good day and to my face. . .

I do0n't have eno0ugh experience in the shooting of max loads through .44 mags to compare. The Buffalo Bore I carry and sho0ot is 270 and 300 grains respectively. I've never seen the 340 grain stuff here, but now I gotta order some!

Managing heavy recoil is yet another realm of handgun mastery all to itself.

WHAT A WONDERFUL, DYNAMIC SPORT!!!

Every handgun collection is incomplete with out at least one good .44 mag.

Here is the 340 gr +P+ Buffalo Bore Load in my 7 1/2" Ruger Redhawk. The bottom image always surprises me.
I mean a 7 1/2" barrel disapears in the flash and it happened so fast that I barely remember the flash, other
than the loss of my night vision.
