Re: 460 smith&wesson

What kind of speed are you getting out of the 200 flex tips? I have been wanting to load those in mine.

Re: 460 smith&wesson

Ive been shooting factory Hornady ammo out of mine for years and it will shoot less than 1 MOA they are 210 gr bullets that I never been able to find for sale out side of loaded ammo. Has a Scope on it thought.
Recoil is on the lite side if your used to shooting a 44 mag full load.
I really like mine since it shoots so well just dont like the fact that you cant swap out the muzzle break for hunting.
Read and head all warnings in the manual about hearing protection. I know I thought I could get by shooting it hunting and it wouldn't bother me like I do my rifles. Wrong if its load enough that I checked for blood as soon as the pain went away.

You can't hip holster a 500 (not sure about the 460) but my 44 (with iron sights instead of the scope) is easy to wear in a DeSantis.

Like I said in a previous post, I'd have a .41 (I had one years ago and took a bunch of deer with it but sold it and never got another. You can one hand a .41 for a snap shot. You can't a 44 and I'm pretty sure a 460 is a 2 hander like the 500.

Maybe Clint Eastwood can one hand a 44 but I can't.

The 500 and the 460 are the same exact size (except the bore) they also make hip holsters for them as well

The best advice I can give for a handgun scope is either Burris or Leupold. Others will work I'm sure but those two will be the best bet for resisting the blast and recoil. I personally like the Burris 2-7 and have one on my 460 xvr. There have been many people I talked to and many upon many have recommended Burris for it's high quality.
