The 454 Casull is a heavy caliber revolver capable of taking most if not all big game found in the United States. Even with it's padded grips and ported barrel, it can be a handfull to handle.
It can be loaded with light target loads to extremely heavy hunting loads. For an even milder recoil, the 454 can shoot the weaker 45 Colt rounds (just like a 357 Magnum can shoot 38 Specials). Pick your pleasure!
