| | The lands and grooves rifling difference between .44 and .454 in SRH's
I have three super redhawks currently, one is the 7.5" in .44 Magnum and the other two are Super Redhawks in 7.5" and 2.5" (The Alaskan). I am the original owner for all three and they are were all made in 2015 I think. I have noticed that the rifling on my .454's are smoother but also "different". Not sure how I'd classify it.
The rifling in my SRH .44 Mag is cleaner and the rifling is a little, and I mean a little deeper. I have also owned two 7.5" .454 Super redhawks in target gray. These two were made in 2000 and the muzzle looked a little different than the later models but I also noticed these .454's were also "smooth".
I told my local LGS about it and he said he also noticed it an all the .454 Super Redhawks.
Does anyone know why Ruger does this?
