The Redhawk is always talked of and advertised by Ruger as their hunting handgun. Recently I heard that the "Ruger only" loading charts were for the Blackhawk only. I called Ruger to verify and of course they do not indorse reloading. I said fine what about commercial ammo like Buffalo Bore 300 grain hunting loads, "oh no maybe the 250 but no +P or 300 grain." I said your saying the Blackhawk is stronger than the Redhawk then? "Yes".
