    What would you use a .460 weatherby for? [​IMG]

    Hey now, my 416 Wby works fine for LRH! [​IMG]

    Shure would be nice to see some nice high BC bullets for these bigger boomers though...

    As the lyman reloading book says, they are fun to shoot the first time around. I would have it just to add to my collection. If I ever went to Africa, I do not know about you, but I would want a cape buffalo blown backwards instead of charging me.

    I'd rather take my chances with a .375 H&H instead of pounding the hell out of my shoulder [​IMG]

    weatherby with their accu brake equate the kick to a 375 wby. so it would not be that bad.

    Yeah, but what a blast you will feel and hear with each shot. I guess its a trade off either way. Recoil to break your shoulder or going deaf with headaches. One of my Dad's friends has a .460 in the Dangerous Game Rifle. He is a guide in Alaska and uses it for bear. I havn't heard him complain yet. Though I havn't heard him at all either. [​IMG]

    375's a BB gun! [​IMG]

    I would recommend a brake for the recoil shy, or even those that think they aren't and have yet to handle the high speed big bores without one. [​IMG]

    Is rifle still available? Where was is made? Does it have muzzle brake?

    Can you e-mail pics to rgkuhs@lightspeed.net?

    Thanks
