I use a 2x Leupold scoped Super Redhawk with a 7.5" barrel. It is abit ungainly but shoots nice. I took my first whitetail here in Michigan with it at about 60 yards. At the time I was using Black Talons (they were still being made). That bullet performed beautifully! Impacted high in the front shoulder blade then through the bottom of the spine, then through a rib on the opposite side and stopped just under the hide. (I still have that bullet)I haven't been hunting long so maybe someone else can compare performance, but I was impressed. You can still find Talons but you will pay dearly! My local gun store still has a couple boxes for $40.00 each! I now use the Partition Gold but have not taken a deer with them yet.
