The highest velocity production wheelgun round in the world? Yes, please. People may call you crazy for desiring a round designed for handguns yet showing off higher pressures and recoil numbers than most magnum rifle calibers. Not us, though. In fact, we seek out potent big bores that prove themselves on big game hunts. 

Though not for the faint of heart--or recoil wary--there are plenty of .460 S&W chambered firearms--both handgun and long guns--to help harness the power and deliver rounds on target. As a bonus, the majority of guns chambered in .460 S&W can also safely fire both .454 Casull and .45 Colt, so it is possible to spend range time with reduced recoil. While this is not an all-inclusive list of every firearm housing the .460 S&W, they represent most of our go-to looks.
