If you think about it, why not also try some powderpuff loads, maybe 350 grains at 1000 fps, with a medium-fast burning powder.

We're open 24/7 and we'll keep the lights on.
That Colt 2nd gen 1860 Army, bought new for the Mrs birthday in 1981, is the only unfired gun we have except for the new 460/8.375".
Can you believe she chose that over a mint AutoMag?

TrailBoss is good to have on hand.

The added weight on that long barrel ought to tame some of that recoil. Look forward to the report, Rifleman34.

Went surfing and found Hitchcock shooting a S&W 460 magnum.

To get the feel of it and start in easy like he loaded it with...
Schofield
colt
casell
and then light federal 460 and finally the 300gr loads.

Have fun with that Big .45 revolver.
