In 2003, Sturm, Ruger, and Hornady introduced .480 Ruger ammo to the world. The large, high-power .480 Ruger revolver cartridge was the largest-diameter production revolver cartridge at the time, at .475 inches or 12.1 millimeters. The .480 Ruger cartridge was originally intended for the Ruger Super Redhawk and was designed to fit in a 6-shot cylinder. The .480 Ruger cartridge is often viewed as a ".475 Special" because .480 Ruger rounds will fit and function in a .475 Linebaugh revolver and have similar firepower as .475 Linebaugh rounds. The .475 Linebaugh is a very powerful cartridge designed for handgun hunting of large game where deep bullet penetration is needed to ensure a quick, humane kill. The .480 Ruger can also be used for handgun hunting of large game since it is comparable to the .475 Linebaugh. The .480 Ruger cartridge is a well-balanced cartridge with a lot of energy, but it produces less recoil than heavier kicking handgun ammunition. Additionally, the .480 Ruger operates under lower pressure than other, heavier rounds, which allows the .480 Ruger cartridge to have less muzzle blast and less noise along with its lower recoil effect.
