I have 2 .480s and love them. One is a SRH, I also had Freedom Arms make a .480 cylinder for my FA83 .475. Get a couple of good bullet moulds and a pile of wheelweights and you don't have to worry about component cost. I have found that mine will equal or exceed what my Taurus .454 will do with the heavier bullets and safe loads. I like a 360-370 grain bullet over 25 grains H110 (can go 26 with my 360 WFN, YMMV), that gives about 1400 fps and 1.5" groups at 50 yards when the shooter does his part. I also use a 306gr LFN out of a Ballisticast mould over 12.8 grs HS6; that gives 2" groups at 25 yards and a very pleasant 1050 fps (and 25" penetration in wet newspaper). Enjoy.
