I would have to say my Ruger SRH with full house 454 Casull loads. It's louder than my full house 460 XVR loads.

Probably my 5.5" Bisley .45 Colt with a stout charge of Lil'Gun or H110/296. Not insanely loud, but definitely has the cannon-like boom factor to it when the trigger is pulled.

Dunno, I never have all of my handguns at the range at the same time.

I'm guessing it would be between my Ruger SP101 in 327 Fed. Magnum or my S&W 686 (357 Mag) with PowerPort.

Loudest gun I've ever SHOT is a Desert Eagle in 50AE.

I have to say my 327 fed mag snub. I shoot my ,357mag at the indoor range I use and they don't complain.
When I get out my ,327 fed mag, people start backing out of the lanes with their hands over their head sets.

I had to quit shooting full house 327 fed mags their because of complaints. I still shoot two different .357 mags their and they seem to be ok with that.

From standing behind it pulling the trigger I don't notice it being any loader than my .357s but from all the complaints about my .327, something' causing it.

Very nice Outlaw2. I always wonder what it would be like to shoot one in .410

Thank you Fisher
The recoil is not near as bad as the noise the over size rubber grips really helps

Good call, Outlaw2, on the rubber grip. I need to put one of those on my snake slayer. Not as pretty as the rosewood, but much more practical. It's so small now that I have to grip firmly w/strong hand and pull trigger with off hand finger. Weird at first but provides a much better purchase on the gun when firing .410 or .45LC. I got the idea from several folks on youtube and have enjoyed it since.

Big4 I think I saw that same video you are talking about.
I tried holding the derringer in my right hand and pulling the trigger with my index finger on my left hand but for me it just didn't feel right so I ordered the extended rubber grips and right now they are on sale at the Bond Arms sight
and they do make a difference.

Other indoor range users have commented that my .454 Casull 7.5" Ruger Super Redhawk is distractingly loud, especially when I'm shooting my full-house 250 gr. handloads.

Funny thing is, with doubled-up hearing protection, it doesn't seem excessively loud from the shooter's perspective directly behind the gun; it's only when someone else is shooting the gun and I'm standing slightly behind and to one side, that I get to experience what the others are talking about.

My S&W 500. I handload my brass and 39.0 grains behind a 350 gr bullet gets a lot of attention.

My 4" Redhawk .45 Colt.

Especially when loaded to the gunwales with 24gr of H-110 and a 335gr CP WFNGC. It bucks. It roars. It belches out giant orange fireballs and will probably ignite my tent and sleeping bag if ever called on for its primary purpose.
