We offer several bullets suitable for the .480 Ruger, depending upon your weight preferences.
I also suggest that you use a .476" diameter sizing option for your RSRH revolver for best performance and accuracy.
The weights offered are listed below:
- 325g WFNGC
- 355g LFNGC
- 385g LFNPB
- 420g LFNPB
- 420g LFNGC
- 420g WFNGC
The 325g WFNGC replicates the factory weight bullet, but due to the design of the WFN profile and the gas check in conjunction with the reduced friction coefficient when compared to comparable weight jacketed bullets, this projectile will deliver up to 200 fps greater velocity when loaded to the same chamber pressures as its jacketed counterparts. The huge meplat on the nose of this bullet makes it a tremendous game stopper, and cuts huge permanant wound channels!
The 355g LFNGC bullet we offer was designed and cataloged by us at the same time the first .480 Ruger revolvers were available to the public. This bullet allows acheiving the same muzzle velocity as the factory loaded 325g bullet at equal chamber pressures, due again to the configuration of the bullet's design, the lower friction coefficient of the gas-checked alloy bullet when compared to jacketed bullets and of course our proprietary lube. The net result is a very pleasant to shoot cartridge with increased bullet weight for better penetration and down-range energy as well as enhanced trajectory.
Hopefully this information will assist you in your bullet selection process.
Regarding loading dies, either of the manufacturer's dies you mention will give you a lifetime of reliable service. Pick one and don't look back, you can't make a bad choice with either.
