You won't like the weight or the recoil. Not having hefted a 460 versus the 500, I can say the 500 is cumbersome while the 44 is large but still handleable (I think thats a word...lol)
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.
I have the lil beast. a .460 the hornady flex tip in.460 kicks but flies straight & flat. I shoot the .454casuil 25 to 50 yards. Needa scope for 100 yards or more.So who makes scope base & rings ?
That's a very good point. So a fixed power sounds in order ?............. What bullet weight to you shoot the most ?Also another thing with magnification, the higher you go with power, the less you have for eye relief. On 7x mine has to be held about half the distance of normal arm length shooting. At that power it becomes too un-natural position and crosshairs become hard to control.
