Thanks for referencing some additional bullet options. I'd like to test a few and see which give me good groups from my gun. I tested the Hornady XTP this weekend and groups were decent but oddly a...

Thanks DwMiller. I wouldn't mind trying some speer gold dot myself. Is this a hollow point round? The Hornady XTP isn't your generic hp, but still I've read some reviews that indicate a hp can give...

Thanks Viking. I enjoy hunting with my redhawk, and have taken deer with it several times. Just getting into reloading, so thinking more critically about the ammo I'm using. And head/neck shots are...

Per the Hornady XTP bullet box, the "tapered jacket ensures controlled expansion and deep penetration", so though these are hollow points they are specifically designed for hunting. This may be why...

I'm not sure I get you about the barrel moving? My scope is attached to the rear part of the barrel, but only the front part of the barrel breaks - so my scope should be fine I guess.

I have...

I appreciate the feedback. I'm wondering though if your points about time period and consistency of the pump would apply to my gun, since it is spring powered. My understanding is that when I cock...

Whitetail hunting with a 44mag

I've been hunting whitetails with a 44mag and am loving it. I have a Remington Super Redhawk with a 9.5inch barrel with a scope on it; sometimes I'm almost not sure it qualifies as a pistol it's so...

Thanks everyone

I appreciate the responses, even for a newby like me :)

It seems that a silencer is not my best option at this time after all. I may look into getting some of the hearing protection with...

directional hearing?

My Dad and brother had some like this, though with less microphones. Would this kind with 4 mics allow for directional hearing? I'd be surprised if you could tell the difference in a sound 40 yards...

I did think about this, and this issue is one of my questions regarding the whole idea. I assume a silencer would decrease the noise at least?
