I had a bad Jones going, so I rented a Super Redhawk at the range.
I simply hated the damn thing.
Hated everything about it.

I could hardly wait to finish the box of shells, turn it in, and leave.
My fun meter peaked after the first round.

I own GP100, SPs, Vaqueros, Single-Sixes... all of which are enjoyable shooters.

Rent one first.
You may like it, you may hate it.
Rent both Redhawk and Super Redhawk... that is a lot of money to spend only to find you hate the gun.

The Redhawk bug finally got to me. I have the SR 1911 itch scratched and the Precision Rifle is getting there. The New Vaquero twins, 45 and Colt are getting along just fine but the safe needed a couple Hawks. So.....a 357 8 hole 2 3/4 is in the safe and his big brother the Alaskan in 454 Casull is inbound!

The person selling the Redhawk backed out on me and went away. So, I ordered a Ruger .44spl Flattop 5.5" barrel. I fell in love with the Flattop when i held it and had to order it. I pick it up on Monday. I have some nice grips waiting for it. I have already loaded up some 124gr. Hornady's with Unique. Can't wait to go and shoot it. I still do want a Redhawk though!
I have a 50th Anniversary .357 Magnum converted to .44 Special and a 7.5 inch Bisley also in .44 Special. You will love your single action! I suggest 240 grain cast bullets with 7.5 grains Unique and standard primers. If you had gone with the .44 Magnum choice in a Redhawk, I would have suggested 10.0 grain Unique for around 1000 fps for any general hunting or shooting requirement. If you get the Redhawk in the future, get the 5.5 inch barrel in either .44 Magnum or .45 Colt, unless it is a dedicated hunting gun. I like the slightly less barrel heavy .45 Colt but it's not that much of a difference. In 325 grain weight the velocities are very close in the 1200 fps range.
