Mark,

Congrats! Looks like a nice revolver! And good pics of it and your Smith!
Give us a range report when you get to the range!

Sorry, I wasn't bragging, I only hit the 10 ring with the first shot. I was just expounding on the virtues of the .41 mag - it is a dying breed, unfortunately, because it is one of the best calibers ever made.

Default .41 mag

Just wanted to add that my S&W performance center model 657 in .41 is my carry gun for bear country (Tennessee) when we visit as it can be concealed rather easily. But for most of my .41 mag shooting, I also use a Ruger Blackhawk with a 4 5/8 inch barrel and or my 6 inch barrel blackhawk for hunting. But I also own .44 mag handguns, and enjoy shooting them too. The Alaskan is one nice revolver.

Default Range report...

OK,

I got to the gun range today with my new Ruger Alaskan 44. I brought 50 rounds of Blazer 200 gr. jacketed hollow point 44 Specials, 50 rounds of Remington 240 gr. 44 Magnum JHP's, 12 rounds of Hornaday 300 gr. XTP 44 Magnums, and lastly... 6 rounds of Buffalo Bore 340 gr. Hard Cast +P+ 44 Magnums.

What a MAGNIFICENT revolver! It was just down-right fun to shoot! Even those 340 grain +P+ Magnums weren't bad at all, just extremely LOUD!

All the ammo kept a tight group, typically 2" at 7 yards, and 3" at 15 yards. But my most impressive shooting for the day was my...

Buffalo Bore 340 GRAIN, +P+ Hard Cast 44 Magnums. The photo speaks for itself!

Default Wow great shooting

The Alaskan proved itself and so did you. I am amazed at the accuracy of the buffalo bore ammo. Glad you had a great day and enjoying the Ruger!!
