480 Ruger Ammo

Introduced in 2003 by Hornady and Ruger, the .480 Ruger is a high-caliber revolver cartridge first chambered in the Ruger Super Redhawk. It is descended from the .475 Linebaugh, another powerful hunting round. Compared to other magnum calibers, the .480 Ruger is a balanced cartridge that produces more energy than the.44 Mag but less recoil than the .460 S&W.

Typical loads of .480 Ruger ammo fire a heavy 325 grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of about 1,350 feet per second. This results in deep penetration and high diameter expansion and good performance against everything from deer to bear at appropriate ranges.
