I have got tired of lugging around a sawed off Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 Mag in the Mountains for Black Bear protection, camp, or tent gun. I'm now carrying a SP 101 loaded with one of 2 loads I have worked up. The 1st is a Hornady 158 gr XTPHP over a stiff dose of Unique, Mag primer. The 2nd load is a Lyman hard cast 150 gr SWC, same powder, same primer. I'm just looking for opinions, What load would you carry if any? Any shot that I would hate to take would be under 25 yards for self defense only. I like the Ruger SP 101, it's easy to carry under your coat, out of sight out of mind. I spend as much time, in the Adirondacks, as possible. I'm camping back in far from any roads, I either Backpack or fly in. On every trip I flip a coin on what load to use. Any thoughts?
