Don’t have a hand cannon in your safe? You may want to consider a revolver that chambers the heavyweight 325 gain, .475 caliber bullet – bigger than the .44 Magnum and .454 Casull. This is the sidearm that you should be holstering in Brown Bear and Grizzly country.
Ruger offers a snub-nose, less than 3 inch barrel, revolver chambered in .480 – the RedHawk Alaskan. Finding ammo or affordable ammo for this large frame gun is tough and you may have to search high and low on the internet for a seller, however, in the field, when you need high kinetic energy and knock-down power, you can’t go wrong with this gun.
