This is what I experienced when writing my review of my Alaskan 454

I tested my Alaskan with 3 different loads at 15 yards with a standing unassisted two handed hold. First up was Hornady 454 Casull 240gr XTP/MAG the box says these are rated at 1900fps at the muzzle. With only a 2 1/2 inch barrel I am sure the Alaskan would produce about 15% less velocity which is still about 35% more than standard 44magnum rounds. The second box of ammo tested was Winchester Super X 250gr Jacketed HP Reduced Recoil load which is rated at 1300fps. One thing is for sure in a snub nosed packaged 454 reduced recoil or not will equal LOTS of energy and RECOIL.
