- The Aries Charging Ram is an extremely potent revolver with plenty of stopping power. However, because of the significant recoil, some shooters find it difficult to control.
A .357 Magnum revolver that is based upon the Taurus Raging Bull manufactured by the Taurus International Firearm Company of Brazil, the Raging Bull line of revolvers is actually a large line that includes models for well over a dozen calibers, though the model upon which the Aries Charging Ram is based upon is purely a fantasy version of the weapon, since the Raging Bull was never released in a version that chambered the .357 Magnum round.
Based upon its appearance in the game, the Aries Charging Ram is most likely based upon the Taurus 416 Raging Bull, which was actually chambered to fire the larger .41 Magnum round, and appeared in a 6.5-inch version nearly identical to that of the Aries Charging Bull used in the game. The Aries Charging Ram has a six-round capacity in its cylinder.

- A similar weapon in Blood Money, the Bull .480, is also based on the same weapon, the only big difference is the caliber they use.
- The weapon's name is a play on its real life counterpart, the Taurus Raging Bull.
- Taurus is Aries. The two are astrological signs.
- Raging is charging. The two words are synonyms.
- Bull is ram. The two are similar animals.
- Also, the name Taurus Charging Bull has some significance. Taurus means bull in Latin, therefore the actual name is Bull Charging Bull. Identically, the name Aries Charging Ram has the same meaning. A ram in Latin is Aries, so the name is Ram Charging Ram.
