I just bought an Alaskan 454 Ruger today so I could have some piece of mind while out fishing this summer. It's amazing I haven't run into a bear in the last 4 years I have been fishing up here. Now I have a family and can't take that chance so my wife let me buy a gun for bear protection. So what is the best hard cast bullet for this snubbie cannon. I am not very familiar with these types of bullets, I have just recently got into reloading. Anyone have a recommendation for a bullet brand and powder. I think that the rugers can handle anything you throw at them so the bigger the better.
