Development and Design
The new Ruger Super Redhawk Revolver in .480 Ruger caliber is an exciting new development specifically designed with the big game sportsman in mind. The strong extended frame along with the Ruger patented Integral Scope Mounting System on the wide top strap provides this handgun with a solid scope mounting surface, which is sure to make the Ruger Super Redhawk in .480 Ruger caliber popular among big-game hunters and metallic silhouette target shooters.
The Ruger .480 cartridge takes handgun performance to a new level, without the heavy recoil experienced by other big game caliber handguns. This cartridge offers power without excessively heavy recoil using Hornady's .475" diameter, 325 grain XTP Magnum bullet. The .480 Ruger cartridge can produce a muzzle velocity of 1350 fps - nearly 50 percent more muzzle energy than the .44 Magnum cartridge, with substantially less recoil than the .454 Casull. This exciting new cartridge developed by Hornady, can be said to effectively "split the difference" between the powerful .44 Magnum and the super-powerful .454 Casull hunting cartridges.
Ruger's patented cushioned grips make this powerful six-shot hunting revolver comfortable and manageable to shoot. This Target Grey® All-Weather version adds a classy style to the newest member of the Ruger Super Redhawk family, long known for their rugged reliability.
