Currently I do not own any revolvers but this one has caught my attention. Anyone in the DFW area that has one I could run some ammo through? I have already picked up some ammo and felt that sting but it's tolerable if I like the revolver enough. One main concern I have though is that the barrel needs to be replaced or switched out every 1500 rounds or so. I doubt I would go through that much ammo myself but I will probably run .454 and .45Colt through it as well so it would be difficult to keep an exact amount of pressure to get an good gauge of how much the barrel has worn down. Anything else I should be concerned about with this revolver?

why would anyone convince you to get this revolver?

i say get a .500 S&W and have it over with.

I never have fired the 460, i certainly know the ammo is cheaper and you have more options then the 500. However I own two 500 mags one 8 3/8 inch and I just purchased another this week, a 7.5 inch performance center model.

I use mine on Hogs and Deer, it certainly is not cheap to shoot. I would recomend getting a performance center model, the trigger pull on mine is excellent, plus I like the rails for mounting optics on the PC models. and it seems you can find the performance center models for not much more then the standard model

here's a special run from the performance center 1 of 500

it runs about a grand

The one thing you need to keep in mind that if you reload for the 460 or 500 you need to use high quality bonded bullets because the velocity will cause seperation on cheap bullet

I am thinking the .500 with the thought that you reload for it.

Ok. Let's say I go with the .500 - any major difference in the velocity or accuracy between the 8 3/8" and the 4" barrels?
