yo gauge.. you know me man. I shoot 600 grain slugs at white tail for fun. Go with the 460 man. Blow the thing in half bro. I hate runners just as much as you do. Some will say it is overkill. I say there is no such thing. I think quick death is much more ethical than a "runner's" death.

This my new favorite forum the people here are respectful .Also the hunters here get alot of heat from deer hunters and what not because 90% of hunting hate on long range hunters for some reason.I think thats why i get along with them .im not stranger to criticism .I have been on dozens of forumsand most them are against .
Shootin over 300 yards .But whatever not to go off topic ,Kittens i hope you will be a regular on here

oh respect is a definate attraction. I will probably end up gettin into it with someone tho! haha But im a deer hunter and I dont hate. Bring the pain... whatever your shooting make sure its dead. 460 will do just that!!! Id like to shoot a coyote with one. I hate yotes. but man i gotta go to bed. Ill get back on tomorow and ill be gettin on old gobbler to give a couple of people a piece of my mind.

Re: 460 wby "ok for Elk"???

I really don't see that the 460 Wby is "overkill" on elk. Maybe that's because the only game I ever shot with mine was PA groundhogs. Naturally you want to make sure than you have an adequate backstop (mountain) just in case you get a complete pass-through.

When loading the 460 Wby for groundhogs I found the Hornady 300gr HP bullet to work just fine. For elk I'd move up to the Hornady 350gr FP or RN.

I have shot quite a few factory 500 grainers but couldn't continue due to the high cost of chiropractic care. LMAO

Couldn't afford the high cost of a chiropratic. I would imagine so what with the cost associated with shooting groundhogs with a 460.
