Anyone who hasn't got this month's Guns & Ammo, grab one and read the article on the new .460 Smith & Wesson.

It's something of a historical event. The .460 (despite the name) launches a .45 caliber bullet at 2330 fps, which is absolutely smoking for a handgun cartridge. And since it's an enlongated straight .45 case, you can fire .45 Colt and .454 Casull cartridges in the gun as well.

Even with a muzzle brake, recoil has got to be brutal. But I'm thinking this would be one hell of a short-range carbine cartridge for deer and feral hogs. In a rifle, it would be about .30-30 level.

Hopefully one of my well-heeled gun nut buds will buy one, and I'll be able to test-fire it.
