Whats the largest Caliber Handgun made by RUGER

As of now the 357 LCR is the largest Caliber I own and I want to get something with a bigger boom for Range Shooting. The 357 LCR was a big hit with the buddies who only have 9s and 45s. Ive always like the look of the Alaskan nut I'm new to Wheel Guns and its hard to narrow it down.

Current production handgun largest caliber? Ruger Super Redhawk in .454 Casull, in 9.5", 7.5", or the 2.5" Alaskan versions.

Historically? They made SRH's in 480 Ruger, which is a .475 caliber projectile, rather than a a .452 caliber projectile in the 454 Casull.

that being said, the 454 has more energy and knockdown power, due to the much higher velocities of the projectiles. 480 Ruger is between 44 Mag and 454 Casull in terms of recoil.

At least in my experience.

Edit to add: The 454 Casull can also shoot 45 Colt ammunition for plinking purposes, and is much easier to come by ammunition on the store shelves for the 454 and 45 Colt than it is for 480 Ruger.

Is the 2.5 Alaskan in 454 Casull a Wristbreaker?
