Took my new Super Blackhawk .44 Magnum to the range today.
I had no prior experience with shooting .44 caliber and wasn't sure what to expect.
I started with .44 Special's. (240 gr.FMJ / 950 fps). It took me a couple of cylinders to sight it in. (And conquer my anticipatory squeeze flinch that I've developed in my dotage years.) I found it very pleasant to shoot. Fun and quite accurate when I did my part. I shot several 18 round targets.
I use NRA B-3, 50 foot targets. I was shooting two-hand hold, offhand, at 30 feet.
Then, I removed the stock grips and slipped on a pair of Herrett's Target Grips. They gave me a better grip and "feel" but didn't really improve my scores much.
Next, I tried a couple cylinders of .44 Magnum rounds. (240 gr. FMJ, 1400 fps.) WOW! Holy Sh**! They turned that little 3 ¾" barrel into a flame thrower. I was glad I had switched to the Herrett grips. This may be more fun, or at least as much fun, as shooting .45 Colt's.
All in all a great day. I also took my Single Ten and fired six 30 round targets at 70 feet. That's the maximum distance of the range I use. (I record all my scores and have weekly competitions against myself.)
