Our Assessment: The S&W 460 is built on S&W’s largest frame, the X-Frame, which was developed because none of S&W’s existing double-action frame designs could handle the muzzle energy and pressures generated by the .500 S&W cartridge. The .460 S&W Magnum is essentially a longer and more powerful version of the .454 Casull, itself a lengthened and more powerful .45 Colt. Able to push a 200 grain bullet past 2,300 fps, the .460 S&W is not just one of the most powerful handguns in the world, it also fires at one of the highest velocities of any revolver in the world, allowing for unprecedented penetration when hunting with a revolver. This example has a 12? barrel with provisions for optics and a bipod. If you’re a handgun hunter it should provide for the precision you’ll need for longer shots and has the power to take any game you want in North America. If you’re looking for a revolver to hunt just about anything or are just a recoil junkie, this is the one for you. Please see our pictures and good luck!
