I've used the 460 Rowland conversion kit, and liked it. A kit I bought from Clarke custom guns, set it in a 1911, steel frame, as I remember the 185 grain would go through 2 2x6s taped together and lodge part way into the third

I have shot one Cap, they are pretty cool you can shoot 45 long colt, 454 casull or 460 SW. In them. They are very heavy. And you only have 5 shots. Full house loaded 460 Is not fun to practice with but the POI changes a good bit elevation wise between the loads.

They claim you can take deer at 200yards with no holdover. That's impressive.

Never shot one passed about 50 yards. Nothing formal, just playing. To costly for me to play with, ammo wise.

I am 65 and have a 4" 500 S&W that I shoot 700 grain bullets through. If you get the 460, you will always want the 500.

But then I also bought a 45-70 derringer and shot it with that damn small birdseye grip.
The WIFE was not happy when they had to rebuild my darn hand! LOL

Alvin,
I don't think I would want the 500. If I did I'd probably consider the desert eagle.
The 460 has that capability to shoot .45 cal, when you want to shoot easy.
Its the change of caliber capable that's interesting as well as the power when you want it.

Why?!? My upper limit is a 454 Casull and I don't like it. That derringer is around 50 ft-lb recoil energy by straight physics alone and that with a horrible grip for recoil. OW!

Does that make it a self defeat gun?
