Default 480 revolver question

Can any other caliber rounds be fired through a 480? The way a 454 can also handle a 45 long colt and sometimes a .410 shot shell.

I do not believe there is another round capable of firing in the .480 Ruger. Kind of why it has lost its steam. The .454 and .460 S&W are more versitile. The .500 S&W is more powerful.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

I wouldn't put anything in your gun that it wasn't designed to take. One moment you think you're doing something completely safe, the next moment your hand is blown clean off your wrist.
