Re: 460 s&w

I hunt with my 460 and other revolvers alot like as in I shoot one everyday from 50- to whatever yards I see something I want to bump off anyway I dont know that there is such thing as "a long range" handgun load just long range shooting. I got over my fear of shooting over a hundred oneday when at the range with some silhoutte shooters about 8-9 years ago, just find something past your personal effective range and shoot at it until you can hit it with regularity, I can regularly hit thing at up to 325 yards or so and I shoot this far fairly often just laser all your shots first.

Re: 460 s&w

finally got to try some loads for the 335gr cast performance bullets and the 240gr xtp mags the load that I found that got acceptable accuracy for the xtp 46.8gr of h110 velocity was 1690fps the cast performance bullets strip the rifling with any velocity over 1700fps I got great accuracy (2 in at 50yds) with 39 gr of lil gun sighted in at 4in high at 50 yds is only 13in low at 200
