Taurus 'Raging Bull' in .454 casull, 61/2" barrel. I kinda wanted one in .44 mag with the 8" barrel but nobody in town had one, I was gonna order one in when I came across this beauty and the price was right. I put a box of ammo through it while I was at the gun store/range (not often that I shoot indoors).....Let's just say that it's a handful....LOL!

Nice pistola Hamp!

How much does the ammo cost?
(like the chop sticks)

dies for this caliber as it $32 a box (20 rds) I thought the chop sticks gave the picture an oriental flavour....Ha ha ha ha!

Oh! And Dave at

the gun shop said you can also shoot .45 long colt but in the box there is a big warning about using only .454 casull, this will require some research..........

Hamp, research

What twist rate does the raging bull have? I'm checking data now. The .45 LC seems predominantly 1:16" the Casull is 1:24". Non issue considering difference in pressure but may not stabilize heavy bullets loaded to .45 LC velocity.

I have no idea Vaq and

the only 'computer lookin' I do at night is chatting with my friends at GS, I will consult Google at work tomorrow. It's a blast to shoot (literally), brings a smile to your face and a dent to the forehead if you ain't paying attention.......LOL!

I see. I'm checking dimensions, lengths, pressures, etc.....
in a reloading manual. I can't see an issue. Twist rate seems to be the "IF".
As stated, it might not stabilize and suck for accuracy.

I do, cheap is better than accurate...lol When I sight it I will for sure use .454 casull, it seems to be high and right at the moment. Thanks a million for your help "load master"..........Ha ha ha!
I now must cook dinner and 'pet' my new gun....LOL!

actually a vertical shoulder holster or hunter would work just fine with that. Works with a 10 inch Wildey .45 Magnum it will work with that.

Though you might walk like you were born on a hill !

Yeah, 20

Hornaday, deadly and dependable it is, affordable it's not! I was surprised that the .454 casull uses small rifle primers, with my AR loading, I have plenty of them.....It's working into my budget, albeit slowly!....lol

Wow

Damn! That's a gun and then some. What did you give for it? I've wanted one for a while but never seen one for sale anywhere.
