    Does anyone have one of these guns? One at a gunshop is slowly but surely calling to me. :D It is a 10" barrel. I had the chance to hold it a few weeks ago and it is definitely bulky, but I would assume for the round's main purpose (long-range shooting), that is a good thing. I've been hesitant to get this mostly because it seems this round was designed more for long-distance shooting rather than brute power like the 500. How does it compare to the Smith & Wesson model of the same caliber? I have BFR's in 454, 475, and 500 so this one might just be nice to round out the collection. And, speed and range aside, just how powerful a round is this 460?

    I can only answer about the power of the round. It's a bad boy! I have the S&W version and have dropped a whitetail @ 115+. Hoping to join the "200 Club" this year. If you buy one, start out with a smaller load. The 275 gr is my choice for whitetails.

    Looks like you're missing the .45-70, can't call the collection complete without it.

    I have the .45/70 in 7" barrel, and it is as fine a hog gun as was ever made, particularly when using warm handloads and 405 grain jacketed bullets.
