I am looking at buying a new or used 44 mag for deer hunting and back packing up north. The two barrel lengths I am considering are 7.5 and 9.5 inches. I would really like a Ruger Super Redhawk or just a standard Redhawk. How much more accuracy am I gonna gain with the extra 2 inches on the barrel? Also what am I looking at for effective deer range with either of these I am assuming about 40 yards with a steady rest. Anyways a little feedback would be appreciated and feel free to throw out other wheel gun ideas. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
