This superceeds my Taurus Raging Bull .44 (which I like a lot). It came out of the box dead on the red bull's eye. It has a little bit more recoil than my raging bull, but is more accurate even with heavy loads. I don't shoot anything less than 240 grain and spend most of my time with 300+ grain bullets from HSM and Buffalo Bore. Even the heavy loads are within .5". The Ruger Super Redhawk (and Taurus Raging Bull) is one of only a few .44 magnum pistols that Buffalo Bore will attest to being able to handle their 340 grain bear load bullet to shoot from (S&W not being one of those). I love this revolver and don't think you can go wrong with it- strong and dead on right out of the box!
