Is the accuracy of the 4.2 inch redhawk, in 45 colt on par with the 44 in the same barrel length? I will be using reloads most of the time. Thanks
I regularly shoot revolvers over 250yrds. Most revolver owners don't, so all of that sounds really important, but for those "most revolver owners," it's not...A bullet traveling 960 fps is effected more by the elements, wind etc. than a bullet traveling at 1560 fps. And while it is true that accuracy and trajectory are not the same thing a bullet traveling in a more exaggerated arch (more drop-greater hold over) will normally be off by more than one moving faster with less arch. Increased trajectory means increased error. If your aim is off .030 inch with the .44 magnum your rate of error will be less than if your aim is off .030 with a .45 LC. Even if we put both guns in a vice. The .45 will have a greater error rate because of external forces. The .45 will be in the air 50% longer and therefore more effected by wind, air density etc. than the .44 magnum. Or at least that has been my experience.
My experience has not shown a significant difference between 240 and 250grn loads. Not in the least.Varminterror
Why do you all use the 45LC 250gr in comparison to the 240gr 44Mag? When you have the 240 gr 45 LC loading? Apples to apples people! Then you see there is not much difference.
