    I'm looking at the numbers, and I don't see why you couldn't shoot 3" .410 out of a 460S&W...
    Would you maybe need to change the angle on the forcing cone...?
    Slight loss of accuracy perhaps...?

    What do you guys think...?

    I don't think i'd want to mess with it! Sounds like a bad idea to me.

    Let's just theorize though...
    If you can shoot 45LC out of a 3" 410 cylinder(with pretty good accuracy), then why couldn't you do a 3" 410 out of the beefier 460 cylinder...?

    I don't own a 460...if somebody would trade me for my Spectre or Lew Horton, I'd settle this! ;)
    The 460 and 454 are based off 45LC as their parent case, so I don't see why it wouldn't work...

    I think S&W was so impressed with itself, that it might have skipped right over it...! ;)
    And I believe it came out slightly before the Judge, and the trend it started.

    I saw Taurus was offering the Raging Judge soon, that shoots 454 also...
    If I am the first to come up with this, please let it be known now!!! :p

    Yeah, my bad...
    My dyslexia got the best of me!!! >= ¡
    Had 2.92" stuck in my head...!
    Which I guess makes me have to rephrase my original question...
    "Why don't they make 3" cylinder revolvers that shoot .410, 460, 454, and 45LC?"
    ;)
