For me, the Blackhawk had less felt recoil, because the shape of the grip allows the gun to rotate upwards, unlike the Redhawk which pushes straight back. Notice I said 'felt' recoil. A .44 mag is a .44 mag, but the design of the gun affects what your hand and wrist feel. Either one is a a quality built, supremely accurate hunting weapon.
