    Nope, but I can tell you very matter of factly that the 460 is more then enough gun for the task inside 150 yards. All the 460 is a 454 on roids and the 454 has been killing deer and elk quite successfully for many years now even at pistol speeds, at full stroke the 460 is a major overkill.
    Edit: I am assuming you are talking about the 460 S&W if by chance you are talking about the 460 Weatherby please get professional help before you hurt yourself :D
