    .44 mag woods packin ammo?

    kinda dumb question, trying to get some more experienced input. i have a ruger super blackhawk .44 mag 5 1/2" bl, i am going to use it as my hunting back-up/woods packin gun, and i was looking for advise on a good round, bullett type/weight to carry in it. it sw wa i dont run into anything larger than a black bear, ive never actually seen anything while out yet. my edc is a .45acp, but after reading some other posts while seaarching this topic, i would rather have the .44 mag while in the woods....any advise is appreciated. (btw, i am a bit large, and can handle slightly higher recoil than average)

    Since you stated that you can tolerate the extra recoil, may I suggest Buffalo Bore and one of their 300 grain (+) loads. These will penetrate the toughest grizzly or any large irate moose you may encounter. Your Ruger Super Blackhawk will certainly handle those stout loads as well. Look at their website Home Page.
    God bless our troops!

    +1 on the Buffalo Bore ammunition.
    Better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees.

    I carry grizzly 300 grainers in my ruger redhawk. Kinda on the same line as the BB.

    Load it with the heaviest you can find and carry some of the lightest you can find in case you want to shoot something smaller than a threat.
