New to the forum. I'm sure there's plenty of info on here about pros and cons of shooting lead, but somewhere I heard that it really depends on the firearm, it's type of rifling, etc. I'm interested in learning more about shooting lead out of a Ruger Alaskan (or similar firearms). It seems that in the world of semi-auto pistols, shooting lead is almost unheard of and I've only heard negative things about it. I'm brand new to revolvers and brand new to Ruger, but it seems normal for owners of the Alaskan to carry and shoot hard cast lead bullets from manufacturers such as Buffalo Bore, HSM, etc. What are the pros and cons of using lead ammo through this firearm?
