Does anyone else remember the .475 Cooper?  John Taffin wrote about it  about two or three years ago as a 'sensible' alternative to the .475 Lindbaugh.  Sort of a .475 special.  I was wondering if this was the inspiration for Ruger, or if these two rounds were just designed simultaneoulsly but indenpendetly.

I remember the article you're talking about.  If memory serves me correctly the round was .44 Special length.  Love my .480 dearly; I think a shorter version of the round would be wonderful for casual plinking.  I'll probably chop some down to try it one of these days when some of my .480 brass starts having mouth splits.

The gun it was built on was a stainless Super Blackhawk, and I believe it was a 5-shot.
