Can unjacketed rounds be fired in the 44 mag Raging Bull? Or do I have to use
jacketed rounds because of the ported barrel.
Thanks

FWIW, I shoot both jacketed and hardcast lead in my 5" 480 ruger RB. In this RB, there is 4" of standard rifled barrel and approximately 1" at the muzzle end that functions as an "expansion chamber." The ports are connected to this chamber so there shouldn't be any leading. Even if you do get leading with softer bullets, it shouldn't be too much trouble to clean up or cause any problems.
