Anyone have experience shooting this round from a 16 1/2 or 18 inch bbl lever gun? Considering pulling the trigger on a Co-Pilot and weighing the differences between the 457 mag and the 50 Alaskan calipers.
What velocities can be expected from the 50 Alaskan shot through a short tube?
Is recoil managable without the porting?
I do my own reloads so that's not an issue.
