Re: 460 XVR Hunter capabilitiy

Yea they are a pretty awesome pistol. The first holo scope I put on mine lasted 3 rounds. Wasn't a name brand holo just something I picked up on Optic Planet cheap. You really do get what You pay for. Never had much problem with temperature here shooting. Gets up to 70 here in summer and down to 50 in winter.In other words you can be cold all year round golfing. The point was that I have never had to work out loads for extreme temp changes. I did pack it over to the Ochocos last year and set some milk jugs out to freeze. Made for some niceexploding milk jugs .lol

The leuapold I broke on the 460 had seen heavy use on a super red hawk for 15+ years. I think it was on its last leg when I put it on, had been a great scope. I will put it back on the 44 after it is fixed. I will probly by a new leuapold for the 460, Im sure the leuapold will hold up on it. The old one would have broke on the 44 any way, it was tired.

Re: 460 XVR Hunter capabilitiy

I very recently purchased a Vortex pistol scope and put it my 22/45 ruger.I liked it so well I bought a second one.Then came the dilema. Do I dare try it on my 460? They are not expensive but look very well made.I compromised and put it on my 952-2. I am going to put a couple hundred rounds thru it and if it holds up I will prob give it a try. I suspect that it prob won't last on the 460 but I should give it a try. At least I will be able to report the results.
