Hey guys, I bought .44 Mag Alaskan 4 years ago as bear protection for my summer trips up your way. Here I am, 4 years later, still wondering if a .44 mag is going to do what I need it to do if the time should ever come. I keep 320 grain lead rounds in it while I'm in the field. The Ruger 454 is on my wish list, but if I can't swing it for another year or two, should I keep faith in my .44? Thanks for your opinions.
