I know a lot of people here have a Raging Bull, (and posted pics of some) but I've never head of anyone with a 5in model...I know Taurus only makes them in .454 and .480 (later is likely discontinued) but .454 still should be availabe. And I think I want one ;)

I'm thinking of upgrading from .44mag 6.5 R Bull to the 5in .454 8)

If anyone owns one I would love to see pics and hear how it handles, esp compared to the 6.5in models.

Even searched google and yahoo; only pics I found were from Taurus website...:(

Found a couple places that sell them ($650+ USD) but no user reviews...I wish I could have one for that price, but here in Canada they go for well over $1000 :(

The .480s have been discontinued as you noted Gray_Wolf though you can still find them on gunbroker semi-frequently and the majority I've seen listed there were NIB and around $500 US. I think the Canadian dollar is on par with ours now so that's a plus for you.

Here is a .480 NIB for $465 US (before other fees)

Granted, it does have the the 8 3/4" barrel however.

One in .45 Colt starting at $395.00

And one in.. yes.. .454 and a 5" barrel for $600.00

If I owned one I'd gladly give you a review Gray_Wolf but unfortunately I have no experience with that particular firearm.

I picked up a 5in stainless in .480 a few weeks ago at a gunshow , and like it, it seems to balance well and is very accurate, I can't really compare it to anything as this is my first big bore hand gun.

I traded for a 5'' 480 Ruger caliber. Supposed to get it in tomorrow. Been doing a lot of reading on the net about the 480. Seems like a great cartridge!!!

Do you want to buy it after I get it in? I really wanted the 8'' barrel.
