Who says the 454 Alaskan has recoil?

This is a discussion on Who says the 454 Alaskan has recoil? within the Ruger Double Action forums, part of the Pistol & Revolver Forum category; I really love mine. It's a challenge to control well, but that's half the fun. Here's a pic of a little 300 Hornady xtp flash....

Sheesh, even if you don't hit the bear, the flames and bang ought to scare them off. Maybe they could design a round as a flamethrower. Oh, wait, looks like they have...

Oh, I hear people saying they can't find the 454's. Come on up to Montana, every gun store will have one or two either new or consignment/used. We Hike and although fortunately never having had the pleasure of meeting a grizzly, we have been introduced to black bears on three occasions who fortunately, did not like our company. I have a gp 100 357 with bear loads, but...that 454 is looking quite interesting. I particularly like being able to use 45's in it for personal home defense or plinking. Being able to use 38's in the 357 was a selling point for it.

Being accurate with a Ruger SRH in .454 Casull using the trigger in double action is very difficult.
