Just bought a Ruger Super Blackhawk in 44 mag and was wondering if anyone had good load for hunting wild pigs?:

If you reload, you might try 300-grain. Otherwise, most any 240-grain load will work.

no info on loads but a 44 mag would be good for hog

44 Mag will work great for hogs. My favorite is a max load of Blue Dot behind a 240 JFP.

My hunting load is 23.5 gr of h110 and a sierra 240 gr jhc with a magnum primer out of my sbh 7.5" barrel

If a pellet gun can kill a wild pig then surely a .44 magnum ought to do the trick.;)

200 gr. nosler hollowpoint out of a 16" trapper using a mild load of unique.

This load Has worked out very well under 100 yds.

I always recover the bullet.

How about 190.0 (or more if you are careful) of H-110 behind a Laser Cast 300 grainer. Oh, you will need a taller front sight though. Very powerful load. I want to try it on deer this year.

190 grains of H110 in a .44 magnum case? Would that be considered a compressed load?:confused:

Yeah, in a coke bottle.:D

190.0 gr. of H110 is also known as dynamite...:D :D :D
Crank one of those bad boys off, and you'll have the ATF knocking at your front door!:eek: :D

Haha sorry guys.. I guess this is why we don't always trust load data given over the internet. Obviously I meant 19.0 grains as given in the Lyman 48th Edition manual.

Haven't shot a hog or deer yet.
But this is what I've got loaded up in my 44mag.
I feel the partition bullet will do the best job on hogs.
Loaded with H110 19.5 grains.
