    Anybody had ahold of one of these yet? I am thinking of getting one. I would be interested in hearing a little bit about the ballistics of it. The ad says it is good outside 250 yards. Is there any truth to it? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    The .460 does indeed have the ballistics to back up their claim to 200 yards. It don't however make hitting at extended ranges any easier. 250 yards is long range for a handgun-especially in field and to shoot a deer/etc at that range,you have to have a near perfect rest and MUCH practice shooting at that range. You can't expect a flatter trajectory to magically transform you into a long range shot without lots of shooting at all distances you expect to shoot.
