You know, loaded right there's not much the .480 can't do IMHO.

I really think Ruger didn't bring out the 5 shot 480 for the simple reason the 475 could be made with little effort and a cylinder reamer.

TCMan, a conversion from Huntington will run you about $1,600.00 complete. Keep in mind that he is one o a handful who makes his own cylinders and there is a lot of work in the process. You also get a new barrel, timing will be perfect and it will shoot really well, or it won't leave his shop. Mine started life as a .480 so I maintained the factory barrel. I have been pleased beyond description with it!


Tigger, there is only 2,000 psi separating the .480 from the .475 (SAAMI spec is 50K and 52K respectively), and I know that some 6-shots were converted with no adverse affects. There were some extraction issues with the original .480 but it was a machining issue. Of the two .480 SRHs I have owned, neither had trouble with extraction even when I ran warmer loads through them. That said, it should have been a 5-shot to start with. I think the .480 over the Linebaugh was a decision based on Ruge wanting their name on the cartridge -- that's just speculation, but it makes sense. Who could blame Ruger?


I have heard rumors that the .480 in the SRH is coming back......let's hop they make a SA .480 as well.......

That is one fine hunting handgun and I know Huntington does some great work as can be seen in picture. The other picture you posted showing the 50 yard group fired from this gun says it all as far as the quality of workmenship.

Thank you! It is capable of grouping much better than I can! Huntington is building me another (a .500 Linebaugh) as we speak.

It has held up well to MANY full-tilt loads! A friend has one on his BFR .475 and his BFR in .45/70 and they both have withstood thousands of rounds without a hitch. I highly recommend them!
