Based on the grips, I am guessing 4" 629. One of my favorites. Had mine magna ported.
Whatever it is, it's damn nice.

Default My latest Addition

I traded a Ruger LC9 pistol for this Ruger NEW BLACKHAWK .357 Magnum. I believe I got the better end of the deal. I even got a holster with it. It has a Jeweled Cylinder, and a professional trigger job. I also got a Hogue Mono-grip too. I prefer the original wood grips as it looks more traditional. I loaded up several hundred rounds of Cowboy Action grade ammo in .38 and .357 for my first outing coming up this Thursday. Can't hardly wait!

Actually, I've blown up 2 Ruger Super Blackhawks. Not intentionally. Double-charged re-loads. Both repaired (at Ruger) and back in service. However, new powder measuring equipment installed in my re-load bench.

Bullseye powder? Sorry that happened, amazed that they were repaired as mine was totaled, I still have it in a desk drawer to remind me not to use a powder that is so easy to double charge. AA #9, 296 or H-110 to the base of the bullet for 44 mag. in a Redhawk, Unique or Universal powders for 44 special for Charter Arms.

I bulged two bores in the cylinder, and cracked the forcing cone on a S&W 66, and my buddy bulged three bores, and cracked the forcing cone and frame on his python. Light loads of Unique, that we had shot all spring, in Vegas in July. It was about 105 in the shade and we had put the guns in the trunk of a navy blue Honda. Grips were a little uncomfortable to hold, even with gloves on. Lesson learned: Hot Unique generates extremely high pressures.

The gunsmith wouldn't believe us until he disassembled a few rounds, and weighed the powder charge. 6.3-grains, the lowest in the Speer manual we had.

Haven't loaded Unique since. Now select powders to maximize temperature stability. Doesn't do any good to devote the time to work up accurate loads if the actual temperature is forty or fifty degrees different when your actually shooting, and the bore pressure swings radically with the temperature.

Thanks for sharing this about Unique. I've got 4lbs in reserve for a rainy day. I'll have to be careful if I get down to the need to use it.

I probably ought to take a picture of the barrel, and cylinder, barrel is bulged and half the cylinder is blown off back strap separated, due to the overall strength of the Super Blackhawk I received no injuries.
