    I was looking for a SA revolver, I already have a .45 LC and I thought that a .44 Mag version would be fun. I question I have is can the .44 Magnum Bounty Hunter from EAA handle Corbon Hunter .44 Magnum 240gr. JHP ammunition?

    The EAA Weihrauch Bounty Hunter

    If it can I am going to get the Ruger Super Blackhawk (the problem is that the ruger is expensive for just a fun gun)

    If you haven't completely made up your mind I would suggest you just find a used ruger. They can be found reasonably priced and I suspect you would be happier with it. It is a better gun used than a bounty hunter is new.

    My stainless Super Blackhawk cost me $285 used, last year.

    That's a real understatement.:)

    If it's just a "fun gun" then why do you want to put expensive full house hunting loads through it, though?

    Well, I might pack it hunting once and a while. I usually carry my 454 raging bull, but I'd probably bring it a few times.

    I started looking on gunbroker, saw some good prices. Problem is I would hate to buy one used from the web and it arrived broken or malfunctioning

    Buy it from a good dealer. They have not been building a good reputation just setting a trap for you.

    WHY?

    I saw two new-condition (maybe unfired) stainless Super Blackhawks with 5 1/2" barrels, original boxes, at the last gun show for $440 each.

    For your sake, I hope someone outbids you and you can go looking for the better revolver at the same price.

    I paid $200 even for my old blued SBH. Of course, it's a tad ugly... .

    There are lots of good used .44 magnums on the market. Guys buy'em looking for a big macho hand cannon, not taking recoil into account. I have four .44s , all bought used and in very good condition.

    I lost that auction but, I found one at a store in Tampa for $350. $386 after tax and background check. It was used but in great condition. Stainless with fiber optic front and rear sights. I'll post pics tomorrow.

    Cool!

    I misunderstood. I thought that you bid that for a used Bounty Hunter. That's why I asked "WHY?":)

    Enjoy your Ruger!

    The wide angle of the camera you used sure makes it look longer and more mean then I'm sure it is.... :D

    Congrats on a fine gun. Don't forget that there's Ruger Only loads you can go for in the books.

    I've shot some .44Mag from a S&W 629 and found it is a fair amount of kick. More than I truly like. But if you're reloading you can play with some slower burning powders that'll change it from a slap to more of a strong sudden push and that should produce some fun shooting.

    What's a better deer round for the ruger a 260gr. bonded core hollow point or a 305gr. Flat Point Penetrator. I'm looking a Corbon hunter rounds. I am going to load myself, but not yet, first I want to try some factory loads.
