Taurus, manufacturer of premium handguns for defense, hunting, and sport shooting, is expanding its premiere hunting revolver line with the introduction of the new Raging Hunter .460 S&W.
For 2021, the Taurus Raging Hunter will be offered in the .460 S&W chamber, expanding a lineup that includes .454 Casull, .44 Magnum, and .357 Magnum/.38 Special +P.
From the Southern swamps to the Rocky Mountains, the Raging Hunter has proven itself on tough animals and was even awarded the 2019 American Hunter Hunting Handgun of the Year.
"Handgun hunting is on the upswing as experienced hunters look to expand their options and, quite frankly, seek new and challenging ways to enjoy their hunting passion while putting healthy wild game on the table," Taurus CEO Bret Vorhees said in a news release. "The Taurus Raging Hunter was a hit among veteran and new handgun hunters when we introduced it in 2019. We are now answering the consumer demand for even more chamber options and downrange performance with the new Raging Hunter in .460 S&W."
