will be the 480 Achilles. Not just because I had a part in developing it, but because of its popularity. I mean, there must be 4 or 5 of them in existence now!

The .480 Ruger and did a .500 heeled bullet like you used. They did your idea and did it just a little bigger! Forget what they called it.

Yes. I got to shoot that gun. I believe it was

While i’m out chasing rabbits, don’t know why it pops into my head. If i had heard about it 20 years ago, there would be 6 by now.

I can hear Gary’s face palm.,,

But hey I think it’s cool! Jim said in an emergency it punted out .45 Colts rattling down the .475 bore straight enough to hurt a bad man up close!

Maybe a hollow base bullet

Like the 41 Long Colt. Heeled or hollow base. The 405 gr hollow base for the 45-70 comes to mind.... it’s really gonna take off now.

I'd shoot it.
