For those of you who don't like the recoil of stiff loads, try a set of Hogue grips on your revolver. They sure tamed my Super Blackhawk recoil that I had fought since 1968. I LOADED LIGHTER and LOADED DOWN trying to lessen the recoil. Then a friend told me I should try the Hogue grips. So I changed the grips and it made a completly different recoil from the weapon. I can load 300gr. bullets to the max and the recoil doesn't bother me at all. Give it a try, it is a cheap fix.
