    Some of us have been discussing the success of the 480 Ruger with the 385 grain Miha HP traveling in the 1100 fps range pretty much killing and penetrating all the bigger critters in the USA and doing it without all the blast/horsepower/recoil the full on 475/500 big bore loads bring to the field. My own pet load with my 475 Linebaugh was a 420 grain bullet at 1350 fps and I just can't imagine the 480/385/1100 Miha combination could run with it. But there it is.

    Note that the new Ruger 454 and 480 do not have the oversize cylinder. Nor do they have a bolt bearing block. Kind of makes you wonder if all of that is really necessary. For years now Reeder has built his big bore 5 shot conversions without the oversize cylinders. Some guys even have .480's on the Ruger mid size Flattop frames.

    This is a lighter weight option for the .512" bores that should be a dandy. If you don't feel like you need all that extra bullet weight to derail street cars or penetrate cement trucks then this one might be for you. We have had some discussion on the back channels as to the success of the Miha 385/480/1100 fps combo pretty much killing/penetrating everything it has been tasked to do. This one should perform at least as well.

    This one will be available in a 2 or 4 cavity plain base or gas check mold. It will come with three HP pin options as well as a set of pins for solids. Prices will be set by Miha when the time comes. Be patient. These buys can take some time.

    Please let me know how many and what kind of mold you want and I need your email in disguised format like this so I can cut and paste it:

    2 dogs, I think this is a double post?

    I am interested in this one.
    The nose to crimp seems short at 365. Is this correct?
    Currently without email due to server problems. But we will get that fixed so I will watch this one.

    Thanks for the close watch but one is a 512-640 and the other is the 501-640 so the text is almost the same but the bullet diameters are different.

    Yes, this one is intended to be a "lighter" or "no fat" .512" bullet!
