Re: 50 alaskan

Yep...Pro is that it shoots ginormous holes in things...Cons are that it cost a lot of money, both to have it made and to shoot it (Buffalo Bore is roughly $100 a box of 20 rounds). It really doesn't do more than a +P .45-70 load would do.

Would I do it again? Yep! That thing is a beast!

Re: 50 alaskan

Get your 45-70 professionally ported, then the BB ammo is no sweat. A 50 Alaskan is probably $1500 if you provide the gun, 2 grand if they do. Pro porting is $200.
