So, there I was.........minding my own business.........dreaming of a new .45 Colt...........and some JackWagon of a friend blindsided me with his Jedi Mind Trick and dropped a link on my phone to this little beast I had to have. As soon as I saw it........I immediately thought of another friend and a gun he owned.
I loved this gun from the moment he had her built. So, when the link this unnamed enabler sent reminded me of my friend Dan and his gun here above, I had to have one similar!!! With slight differences..........of course.
Say hello to my little friend.
Ruger Super Redhawk - "Toklat" - .454 Casull
I wanted to mimic Dan's gun as much as feasible, so I did some scope swapping and put this 2x Leupold on top.
It's not silver, but good enough.
I will also be adding a set of Eagle Classic Rosewood Grips.
I will flat out say............I LOVE THIS GUN!!! Talk about handy! It smokes my 7.5" Super Redhawk as far as indexing and offhand work. I think I've found my new backup hunting rig for those close shots. I've ordered a Blackhawk Shoulder Holster for it. A utilitarian holster no doubt, but one that will do what I need.
My plan is to load and run Hornady 250gr XTP bullets through her. Same ones I'm using in my Encore .460 S&W. Should work well on deer and hogs.
Likely will start load work at 35.0gr H110 and run up to 36.5gr H110. See where the brass says "stop". Any load suggestions?
