Default Ruger .44 Carbine

I just got done shooting this beautiful gun for the first time. It was one my grandpa took on hunting trips as a backup to his .30-30. I re-zeroed the scope and ran a couple of boxes its shells through it. That gun feels great and is very accurate!
Anyone else have experience with this awesome gun?

i started to buy one years ago, but just never did for some reason or other. seems like other guns i wanted more seemed to take priority.

they seemed like a handy little rifle and as long as you kept reasonable distances when using them they would probably work fine for hunting.

like to see a range report on one and see how accurate they are.

looks like yours is in pretty good shape too.

i picked up a really nice one for cheap at a gunshow guy said it wasnt working. all it needed was a good cleaning. grouping is about 1.5 to 2 inches at 100 yards. perfectly adequate for deer hunting. i could prolly get the groups tighter if i worked up loads for it.

These are really fine carbines. Too bad they are no longer made.

I love shooting it. I mostly shot at 60 yards but I threw a couple at 100 and it still did pretty good. I need to dial it in a little better, but it shot pretty good groups.

they are really complicated on th internals and kinda not easy to field strip but they are prolly the best pistol caliber carbines out there

Back in the 1970s I carried a Ruger .44 Carbine in the "Freeze Out" Mtn. Range of Wyoming. The little carbine accounted for deer and black bear as well as just fun shooting.

Wasn't it the gun that the 10/22 was suppose to be the trainer for.

Never heard that story? The .44 was available long before the 10/22. I think it was a handy design that also made a nice .22 rifle.

I've only ever carried a .30-30 or muzzle loader to hunt with. How is the .44 Magnum as a brush gun cartridge?
