Just returned from my annual "sabbatical" in the Hill Country. Using one Garrett 310gr Hammerhead round, Ruger Super Redhawk (7.5"), and Leupold 4X scope, I got a spike buck at 110 yards, and he is in the freezer. If you hunt with a 44, you may want to try Garrett's ammo. It clocked out at 1,358.7 through my Ruger. Best group size during practice the weekend before the trip was 5 shots with 1.75" extreme spread at 100 yards. I practiced for three weeks prior to that with my handloads to work on technique, group size etc.
