This Ruger Alaskan has been modified by a qualified gunsmith that machined my cylinder for moon clips. This Ruger Alaskan is capable of firing 45ACP, 45Super, 45Schofield, 45Colt, 454Casull.

 

 

Accuracy is great as long as I do my part with all rounds. Though it does show very low velocity with factory 45ACP and my 45ACP reloads.

Maybe the bullets aren’t going across the chrono at the same place every time thus accounting for the velocities being all over the place and very low.

Interesting, but expensive gun. A little on the heavy side to carry too, but there’s something attractive about it. It’s definitely versatile, especially with the addition of the 45ACP. I had thought about a Charter Arms in 45 ACP, but their pistols never seem to get the best velocities. I have to wonder why. Anything sub 800fps is too slow for reliable expansion of anything really. Good luck with the big Ruger.
