Just had my new Blackhawk in .357 Magnum with a 4.62" bbl out to the range for the first time today. Hitting at 25 yes was easy and 50 yds was no problem. It is a great cartridge and the Blackhawk is a solid hitter! Just want to get the 6.5" bbl as well. I have a couple more Blackhawks, a Bisley in .45 Colt as well as a flat top in the same caliber. Elmer Keith was the man and I just want to try some 600 yd shot. I reload and have determined my battery to be 45 Colt, 45 ACP, 357 Magnum, 38 Special. Those are my main shooters, but I have others. Those are my serious cartridges. You can never go wrong with Ruger, although I also have a S&W 66 and a Marlin 1894C in .357 Mag.
