Apparently they are available. I ordered this one some months ago, but am happy to see they came through!

That's a bunch of "thump" in a little package!


Any tests lined up for the Alaskan?

It is that, James! But not bad at all to shoot. Granted, I only put factory Hornady 325 and 400 grain loads through it, the recoil is fairly mild. Of course I started the session with my .500 Maximum -- makes the rest easy -- LOL!

Whit, I`ll always remember after shooting my 454 how easy the 44, 41 and 357 were to shot after the kick of the 454.....

I agree, but this thing really isn't bad at all. I was pleasantly surprised at how little it actually kicks.

It shoots well. I have only tested two loads through it thus far, and can report that it doesn't like the 325 grain Hornady load, however, it does like the 400 grain load. We managed a best 5-shot group at 25 yards of 1 1/2 inches. I have a couple of other factory loads to run through it next.
