Picked up a 10.5 New Model Superblackhawk to hunt with, I've always been an overkill is Underrated guy so I'm shooting heavy with it, anybody used buffalo bores 340gr stuff?

Yea, it might be a little much for whitetails, but just curios if anybody has experience with it.

It's scoped with hogue grips and an amazing trigger job. The scope is a 2-6 Bushnell that was on it when I bought it, might switch it out to a 4x leupold after this year though

I have shot Buffalo Bore through my Ruger Blackhawk in .45 colt. There is noting I am going to hunt that needs that kind of power, certainly not deer. The recoil is excessive and I am not recoil shy, it just beats you up and your gun as well. It would actually cause the cylinder pin to come out a bit. I put in a heavier spring to stop that but do not use Buffalo Bore any more. I switched to Hornady leverevolution and it has all the power I need.

nice looking gun i had a leupold 2.5x8 on my f.arms but now i switch between a burris fast fire and open sights. i like to carry a muzzleloader and pistol so the longer shots i take with the smokepole and the shorter with the handgun even though i can shoot pretty far with the 454 but i usually have the .45 win mag cylinder in it for deer.

GOOD GRIEF that's a long nose... I have a 10.5" in the safe, been years since I took it out. Mine's sporting the factory grips and no scope, my 7.5" gets most of the hunting work.

I've been trying to fall in love with the right lead pill in 44mag for a long time, just can't quite get there. I shot a boatload of Cast Performance 300, 310, and 320grn LFP's in the past, all performed well, just never made me grin like the 300grn copper jackets. Maybe it's just the extra speed I can put behind a slippery jacketed bullet. 300grn XTP's are my fodder these days, although I was quite pleased with the flat shooting 225grn FTX for a few years.

yeah that 10" is much to carry mine was a 7.5 with magna-porting but i had the factory cut the barrel down to about 5-7/8 much easier to carry and much better muzzle crown desing than when mine was bought in the 90's.

Yea, it's definetly a hog to carry, but the weight doesn't really bother me, I'm on stand not stalking and the gun is very accurate already, I bought it used and at some point t somebody had some trigger work done to it, breaks very clean and light
