    Default My New Bear Killer

    I've been wanting one of these for a while now.





    Meet the .460 Magnum Smith & Wesson. It's got a bit of a kick to it, but it's heavy and that helps. 5 round cylinder.

    The top round is 250 grain @ 2200 fps, the bottom is 325 grain @ 1600 fps. I'll be loading the bottom round for Kodiak duty - even though it's slower it hits like a truck.

    With all the Kodiak work I'll be doing in the future, I decided to get this baby instead of the hassle of lugging around my .375 rifle because it's a pain in the ass to load in helicopters. And you can't quite carry the rifle conveniently around with you while working.

    Now I just need to find a good shoulder holster to complete the setup... I don't really care for hip holsters because it catches on everything.

    I thought I was going to see your sweet dog again! Ok, I know he wouldn't kill a bear...

    She's pretty awesome, but her job was only to warn us of impending danger!

    Here's a shot of her alerting on deer over on the next mountain - look closely and you'll see 5 deer straight ahead of her about a mile or more away :



    The amazing part is that the wind was wrong - she picked up on those deer from visual only.

    I have definitely got to shoot that sucker next year at the cabin! Since EVERY flight there sucks and arrives late, and I'll be there on March the 1st... and I expect we hit the cabin on the 2nd, and then watch the puppies on the 3rd!! So I expect to pull of a round or two maybe midday on the 2nd.

    Might be a little recoil involved

    I haven't see that much recoil since the last time I took at woman home and she removed her socks - hobbit feet.

    That would definitely break my wrist so I guess I'll just have to run faster than one other person in the group!

    And don't worry, Pete, if you were my neighbor and a bad guy, or two, broke into your house and I could hear you screaming in terror, out of respect for you wanting everyone disarmed, I wouldn't bring it over and interrupt anything. I'm sure that's the way you'd want it.
