    Who if any of you have picked up on the 454 Casull deal?

    This is the deal of which I speak: Taurus Raging Bull 454 Casull 2.25" Barrel Revolver from $469

    And that includes free shipping and no CC fees. To make it even worse, you can get the same price on the 6.5" barrel. I've been doing my darn right best to not buy any new firearms this year, and I'm doing a pretty good job at it. Heck fire, I have even sold a few, albeit darn few, like as in one. But these two pistols, at that price, I am getting so weak in the knees that I don't know which barrel length to order. Maybe the answer would be to say I am investing in precious metal and but both. Even with the Taurus matt stainless finish it's one impressive hand full of weapon.

    I picked up the 6.5" yesterday afternoon from my FFL. The LGS didn't stock 454 Casull ammo. Where's the best price for range ammo for this big dog?

    .45 Colt loads. The cheapest is to load your own. Other than some Hornady and HSM .454 ammo I got at an auction, I load my own. I save the good stuff for hunting and feral pigs. I buy lots of ammo at auctions as long as it is factory ammo. I'm sitting on 600 rounds of .454 that I got for 1/4th the price. That is the only .454 I've ever bought. For deer I only use a JHP 225gr .45 Colt load and 255gr cast for practice. My plinking is done with 180 or 200gr cast (Which ever is cheaper).

    It's really a cartridge you should learn to reload for. The main reason for mostly using .45 Colt is that my Raging Bull is a 6 shot .45 Colt, I've two Uberti 1873 Cavalry models, one Blackhawk convertible .45 colt/acp, two Marlin 1894 CB Limited. My .454 is a Ruger Super Redhawk in 7-1/2" barrel. .45 Colt can be loaded from mild to wild.

    I've got a Lyman Orange Crusher, Dillon Square Deal B and a Dillon XL650. I don't think I'm going to reload enough 454 Casull to do a XL650 tool head setup. I've heard the SDB is too small for this cartridge. Does anyone sell once fired 454 Casull brass?

    Plus loading your own allows the use of Trail Boss powder which will produce a recoil which is easier than 9mm.

    My first thought was a 6 & 1/4", but I don't know. The 2 & 1/4" would make a sweet pocket cannon. OK, I am glad that I could help muddy the water.

    Is this a gunbroker item?

    Get the 6.5” to make uses of the 454 powder charge. If you want a 2.25” get a 45 Colt, it will handle better and throw similar energy in the short barrel. The extra barrel length and weight will help control recoil. Then you’ll become a 454 officianado and need to buy the 2.25” as well. Then you’ll need a Rossi 92 in 454. Then...

    It is a fun cartridge to load up and shoot 45 colt when you want to load down.
