Just had 11 people up at the cabin from Minnesota, no Kings but they enjoyed the trip very much.

The younger guys wanted to fire off my Smith & Wesson .460, and we ended up getting a couple of really cool pics :

13353

I've been trying to get that shot for years now, last night it finally happened! :thumb:

Considering the amount of lead going downrange, it's really not that bad!

It has a muzzle brake on it, that's why there's so much fire in the first pic going backwards toward the shooter. I didn't ever realize just how much explosive fire there is for that millisecond! I think it's one of the coolest action shots I've ever seen.

Nice...let me add...... A 454 Casull can deliver 50% to 100% more energy than a 44 and the 460 S&W is even more powerful.

... Consider that Hornady's product line shows a 200-grain bullet in 44 Magnum at 1500 fps and the same weight in 460 S&W is listed at 2,200 fps(!!!!)

In terms of energy.. the 44 Magnum is delivering about 999 ft/lbs ... the 460 S&W is 2,149 ft/lbs.

....44 Magnum is no slouch.. it's a plenty powerful round in its own right but it just isn't in the same class as the 460....

It is a beautiful weapon. My guess, it weighs about 8lb fully loaded????
P.S. That would really MAKE ANYONE'S DAY...so to speak.:laugh:
