Wow, that's a lot more wear than anything I've seen...and even though the angle of the shot does not allow for viewing the forcing cone clearly, I can still see it's much more worn than mine. I suppose it's to be expected. And surely these components can be replaced---for a price. Quote: "I put this quote in my post above reguarding the 460. Does this seem accurate? "with 45 Colt ammo you will be wasting your time. Accuracy is marginal because the bullet is jumping a long distance from the shell to the forcing cone. And some people believe that if you shoot a steady diet of anything other then 460 ammo, you will start to get an erosion ring in the chambers and later 460 ammo wont extract properly." 1) Does that make sense? 2) Is the same true for shooting 45 LC out of a 454 super redhawk? If so then the interchangeable rounds seem to have some drawbacks" Yes, I wuld say this is probably true---but it's gonna take a lot of shooting to get there. And accuracy with the 45 colt and Casull both are outstanding. I can't tell any difference. The flinch factor even makes the tamer rounds seem to be more accurate than the giant one. It takes real concentration to shoot the 460 because it's hard to get used to the blast. It would probably be easier to shoot without the compensator (less muzzle blast) but the recoil gets hard to handle pretty fast.
