There's 3 or 4 gun related websites that I follow which have informative articles on guns, shooting, etc and they are FREE. I like FREE. I'm not sure they are always "independent" thinking. Many a gun writer have been described as "never met a gun they didn't like." They sort of owe their livelihood to the gun manufactures. I've noticed that some of these gun websites come out with articles on the same gun at about the same time. Must be part of the manufacturing companies marketing plan.

Anyways, not that I've had my say, here are some recent articles on Ruger's big single action:

The 454C and 480R Super Blackhawk were only announced about a month ago, and it's frankly been a LONG TIME COMING for a lot of us, so I'd say it's a lot more than coincidence that these articles came out at the same time. I do know, however, that Gun Blast got his before they had been officially announced, and yes, that was part of Ruger's marketing strategy - and he did get his (I believe 3 or 4 of them) for free.

I'm a big time Ruger revolver nut, and equally, a big bore revolver nut. I had a .475Linebaugh Super Blackhawk built ~10yrs ago, and have since sold and replaced it with a custom Super Redhawk in .475Line. Either of those revolvers cost me more than 4x what the new FACTORY 5 shot Ruger Super Blackhawks are costing. Admittedly, I have one of each 454C and 480R on wait list for myself, although I doubt to own them for long, since I have others that I favor already.

Been lots of banter about them on the singleaction forum as well. I have a BFR in .480 already and have zero desire to own another .454 Casull, so I was underwhelmed by the offering personally though I am very glad they did it for sure. I was, like a few other guys hoping a .50 cal was going to make its entrance but alas, no cegar. Mostly what shipped first was the .454 and just a handful of .480's escaped so far, with more on the way. Glad to see it but I wont be buying either one.
