I would like some opinions. Yes, I know we all have them. I have a collection of revolvers to include a S&W 69 4", a S&W 460 magnum 5", and a Ruger SRH 454 with the 7.5" barrel. I do a lot of hiking all over the country. I'm thinking about carrying a .454 in a nice chest rig but that 7.5" is too unwieldy. I'm thinking about trading it in for an Alaskan. But, then I saw the Toklat. Other than just the 2.5" barrel length difference and a little bit of velocity, is there any significant reason to get one over the other?

Thanks

I have both, though my Alaskan is in 44 magnum. The recoil in the Toklat would have to be much easier to deal with in .454. My Alaskan is very accurate and easier to carry. I find the Toklat quite tolerable in .454.
