Ruger redhawk 45acp/45 colt question
There's a NIB Redhawk 45acp/colt 4.2 inch barrel at my lgs. I'm in the market for a woods defense revolver that can double as a carry gun for EDC defense.
I know that the handbook for the Redhawks states 'no plus P', but i have seen numerous places where people talk about 'the Ruger only loads', and that the Redhawk can be loaded up like 44 magnum.
What is the final word on this Redhawk's ability to handle so-called 45 colt +P loads? For example, Buffalo Bore has some 300 grain bullets around 1,300 fp/s. Will such loads damage the gun or compromise it's integrity long term?
