Has anyone out there chronographed Ruger Alaskan rounds (44 magnum) for velocity loss comparison with longer barreled revolvers (for example Redhawks, Super Redhawks, and S&W 29's and 629's)?
I have never had to shoot a bear in self defense. What I do load for bears is Cast Performance 320 WLNGC hard cast bullets in front of 21.o gr of H110. Has any one tried the Barnes Buster 300 gr bullets? If so what do you think of them?
