    Looking at getting a 44 mag and have narrowed it down to either the KSHR7 Super Redhawk 7.5" or the KS-47NHB Super Blackhawk Bisley Hunter 7.5". This is for target/plinking. A fun gun. I like the BH looks better. I have a
    GP100 in 357 and the grips fit my small hands well. My main question is which is best on felt recoil? I have read the Bisley grip design is very good in this area, but have never shot one. I will handle both, but if someone here has both or has shot both, I would appreciate hearing a compairson on felt recoil. Thanks.

    Like most things it will be a matter of personal preference. If you have a GP 100 and you like the grip, you will probably like the Super Redhawk grip.
    I have a .44 Redhawk, Super Redhawk and .44 Super Blackhawk and a .45 Bisley. With good grips, I don’t notice much difference between the Bisley and Blackhawk grips. The Redhawk and Super Redhawk both rotate into the web of the hand during recoil from heavy loads. That can be more painful for many than the rotation of the Blackhawk and Bisley grips in the hand.
    See if you can try out the guns you are looking at. The issue will quickly resolve itself.

    I have a GP100 and a Super Blackhawk w/the 'standard' grip (not Bisley). Grips for the GP100 and Super Redhawk fit both guns, I believe. The GP100 tends to come back into my hand, and the Blackhawk tends to roll upwards. After extended range sessions, the GP100 gives me a sore thumb right near the webbing of my hand; the Blackhawk gives me a sore wrist.

    Bear in mind that only the SRH can handle some of these loads:

    Specifically, the 44 mag +P Hammerhead Ammo. FWIW...
