Re: project .460 completed with proof shoot !!!!!!!!!

Just bought me a 500 Handi and really like it. But there is something about the prospect of a 460 Handi really has me interested. I might have to try that someday soon. So you started with a 45LC Handi right? Where did you get the reamer?

Nice, Nice Gun. Really Great!

Re: project .460 completed with proof shoot !!!!!!!!!

nice job. I guess you decided to go 460 instead of the 454 casull. What changed your mind?

krod47nw: Can't answer for gendoc, but I for one would choose the .460 over the .454. It's comparable to choosing a .22LR over a .22Long. You can only shoot .454 and .45LC out of a .454 chamber, but you can shoot all three out of a .460. That .460 is one potent cartridge.

Re: project .460 completed with proof shoot !!!!!!!!!

thanks guy's,


bmkindoll, yep started with a cr-45lc... 4d-reamer rentals has the reamer, and they are a sponcer here. (not any more)[/color]

krod47nw, just wanted to have a long one to match my short one..... ;D

sourdough, you are correct too... ;)

by just shoot'n medium loads i can see a prospect of future "on fire loads"

shot a treated 2x10, and its now in 2 pieces.. i think i'm gonna name her....

the saw gun. ::)

Sourdough,
Yes, Very true. The thing that concerns me is the fact that the 460 is much longer than the 45 LC. I wonder about 45 LC accuracy with the chamber that much longer?

Kevin


gendoc,
have you tried 45 LC ammo since reaming the chamber? I would be very interested to know if the accuracy has changed much compared to before reaming.

Re: project .460 completed with proof shoot !!!!!!!!!

kevin,
yes i have, the casull performs better than the colt because of velocity.
this barrel likes'um "on fire" ;D

the .460 is a touchy round. it likes 2.170 better than 2.200 with the correct distance
from lands. and .25gr of powder makes a heck-ofva difference in speed and poi.
i'm staying below max pressures,around 2100-2200fps with a 250gr jhp.
fun gun!!! ;D

final test and zero...

38gr imr-4227 250gr nosler jhp 2.170 col 50yrds 2094fps


top hole is 2 shots :eek:

experimented with several different charges of powder at .25gr intervals
same bullet from 2.170 to 2.200 col

the cool thang is, @100 yrds using the bottom of the prodiamond reticle
its has simular results. not as close but its DEAD HAWG !!!!! 8)

i'm done......

on to my next project !!!!! ;D
