    I just found (& ordered) a new old stock discontinued S&W 460V 5" at a large discount from a dealer in Montana. Does anyone else shoot a 460V? I like the fact that you can shoot .45 Long Colt, .454 Casull or .460 S&W Magnum in the 460V.

    I had a 500 just like the one you have. I bought it new 4-5 years ago and had a blast (literally) with it. Never used it for anything serious, just some heavy duty plinking. I would use 16" long, 8" round pieces of firewood as a target and would roll them all over the place like it was a tin can!!!
    Hope you handload or won the lottery. Feeding that 500 (and the 460) will be VERY expensive if you don't!

    I have been wanting a 460 in a 4" or a 5" for a while now. I remember a while back when CDNN had a great price on them. I should have bought one when they were much cheaper.

    S&W 500s & 460s can be had on the secondary market (unfired) or like new for $900 or less. These are really great buys!

    I don't normally shot my "big" guns more than 20 Rds each trip to the range so they are really is not that expensive to shoot ($25). This really is not that much more than shooting a box of factory .45 ACP or .45 Long Colt. I bought the 460 because it could also shoot the more economical .45 Long Colt along w/ .454 Casull. Normally bring several other handguns w/ me (including .22 LR) to the range that extend my range time.

    SHot my .460: Really just a stong push, but need a shooting glove. Muzzle doesn't rise up like the SA .454. Comp works pretty well. 20 rounds is plenty.
