The 460XVR is actually pleasant to shoot. It is so large and heavy the perceived recoil is similar to 44 mag. The intention here is a hunting revolver - the "other guy" would be a hog or a deer, etc. When they start shooting back I'm going fishing! Ballistics have muzzle velocity at 2200 fps, 1715 at 100 yds (Hornady 200 gr FTX); S&W claims no holdover needed out to 100 yards. Checked a box of 44 mag I have handy (Winchester JSP, 240 gr) and muzzle velocity is 1180 fps, 1010 at 100yds with a -8.1 trajectory. I have shot it on a 100 yard rifle range and I did hit paper. Kinda hard to aim at the bullseye at 100 yards, open sights, no rest, etc. Versatile revolver too - shoots 454 Casull and 45 Colt in addition to 460 S&W M. It'll put a big grin on your face at the range!
It just struck me that there were similarities - SS finish, 5-round cylinder, black Hogue grip....
Hey rdp357 - my SP101 is your twin brother! I'm looking for a leather holster - what do you have pictured in your avatar?
