Normal Forcing Cone Wear?

Hello,

This revolver is almost brand new the original owner put around 40 rounds through it. However I was just wondering if due to the high pressure of this load if this is normal wear for the forcing cone?

Thanks.

I plan on shooting it regardless and most people have said that is just the nature of the 460 as it is such high pressure and that it will only wear so much and then stop. I just wanted to be sure as most of my handguns are regular pressure.

Appears to be a lead and powder build up, nothing a GOOD CLEANING can't take care of.

The best way to clean a revolver forcing cone is to buy a Lewis Lead Remover kit from Brownell's.

The kit includes a cone-shaped aluminum head over which you put a brass screen.
You simply pull the head into the forcing cone with the tee handle rod and turn it a couple of times.
All leading or copper or carbon fouling is instantly removed.

Also see the video link on the page showing how to use it.

I'd be most concerned with that spot at the top of the forcing cone.
Is that a piece of lead? Hard to tell from the pic.

But it sounds like you're getting good advise.
There does appear to be some lead build-up
