480 Ruger vs. 454 Cas

Can anybody give me some feedback and opinions on these to guns? I am looking to get one or the other in Super Redhawk. I've never had either, but I do own a 44 mag SRH already. I'm probably going to accquire one or the other in a trade deal. I just can't decide which one to choose.

I survived The Hallton Hilton!

I have a Ruger RH 44 mag and always shot the hot handloads with it so recoil was not an issue. I shot a 454 one day and was greatly surprised on the recoil. Its alot of gun. Why not just get it over with it and get the 500.

RIP Tuff 98-11, So many hunts, so many good times!

I like the frame design and price point of the Rugers. I went with the Alaskan in 454. One because of the versatility of the gun, being able to shoot light 45 colt loads. I reload so I like the wide variety of bullets in the .452 diameter. Go with the .454 you will not be disappointed.

I wanted to chime in here. The 500 is huge, and I don't like that it's only a 5 shot. I like the standard 6 shot.That's why I went with the Alaskan. Ammo for the 500 is outrageous.
