No problems shooting the .44mag. Iown. SA style Ruger. The Anocanda I tried did feel right with the DA type grip. I can shoot it, but didn't like the accuracy for me. I shoot .40 S&W alot. Downright mild in the HK, but a bit more violent in the lightweight PT140. All in all , I can shoot most heavier recoiling calibers, including my 06 in a 6 lb. bolt gun. Some are more pleasant than others.
