The great thing about America is someone can look at something like the 45 Colt and decided they want something even bigger. That’s what Dick Casull and Jack Fullmer must’ve decided when they took the task of building a bigger 45 caliber cartridge for revolvers. The 454 Casull was born in 1957 and lived as a wildcat cartridge up until 1998 when SAAMI finally published a set of standards for it. The 454 Casull is a powerhouse of a round. It’s capable of tossing a 300 grain projectile at over 1,600 feet per second.
This makes the round perfect for hunting medium to large North American game. It’s also one of the better and more controllable choices for self-defense against wild game up to bears. The 454 Casull is a flat shooting round that retains an impressive amount of velocity out to 100 yards when fired from a revolver.
