Ruger Super Blackhawk Recoil
Recently bot a SBH 5.5". The 1st thing I noticed is that the recoil dynamics for 44 magnum loads was much diff. than the comparable Redhawk 44 mags because of the shape of the backstrap. The SBH rolls in my hand and jams against the hammer and frame causing hamburger hand. Careful and firm placement of my two hand grip has helped somewhat.
The Redhawk has a knob in the backstrap that stops the roll. I now use a glove when shooting the SBH which helps. I'm currently shooting 240 JSP on top of 20.5gr of 2400.
My question is, has anyone experimented with other bullets and powders and found differences in the amount of rolll? If so, what were your observations?
