If I were to get an X-frame S&W, I'd opt for the .460. Much more versatile IMHO. Components for .45 diameter stuff are much more common and significantly cheaper. And you can still wake the dead at the range. Bonus: you can use the "mild mannered"
.454 Casull & the positively inadequate .45 LC
in it in a pinch.
I agree, I would opt for the 460xvr! Also great for big game hunting of your choice. Rounds are not near as expensive as the 500, around 27.00 to 30.00 for 20. And as stated, also shoots 454 casull and 45 long colt. I love shooting mine!!! Highly recommended!
