Would a 4 5/8" bbl be fully effective in a .480? And is that a stupid question? Sorry.


If it were supposed to be easy, they'd have sent my little sister to do it.

Thanks for your reply.

No, you're not the only Alaskan on here. I've been on for quite a while, just don't post as much as I used to. There were at least a couple more at one time, Haven't heard from Vance in Soldotna in quite a while.

Also, I see from your profile you are LEO up here. I just got "removed" out of the VPSO program due to a permanent training accident at the AST academy, and my son is currently also a VPSO here in AK. Tipping my hat to a fellow LEO.

Still, for a MSR of $969.00, I think I would look at the possibility of getting the same thing from BFR. If I had $969.00. Which I don't.

the perfect 480! very very nice. running 400 grains and i think you'd get plenty of the 480's potential.

I believe it would be a handful with that short barrel. Hahaha

handy to carry,,, and for backup or close action,, these can be good. If in a defense situation against Bear or Lion or anything threatening, I don't think you would notice. JMHO

It would be a backup to a handgun (or rifle) with longer reach or for closer (sub 50y) shots.
