4,500 Rounds of .480 Ruger

Description: Yesterday I photographed the 225 empty boxes of .480 Ruger ammo I put through my .480 SBH test gun, before I threw the boxes out. Thought it would make an interesting picture......

I probably haven't shot that many rounds over my entire hunting career so far.

Where's a picture of the pile of empty tubes of aspir-cream? Smile!

My word, that's a lot of shooting with a big bore revolver.

Hahaha! I shot all of that before the gun was released to the public. The bulk of it I shot within one month. Yeah, my hand was sore.....

Are you getting close to your goal of "Carpal Tunnel" yet?

No carpal tunnel yet (knock on wood), but my middle knuckle has a permanent knot on it from making contact with the trigger guard 4,500 times......

Dang Whit, that's some serious amount of lead to put down the barrel. Where do we go to get the range report?
