A while ago I was talking to a rep from S & W who happened to be at the local gun-shop. I was asking his opinion on the S & W 500, he told me to look into the 460, saying it was a much more versatile round, with a good variety of bullet weights and in his opinion better ballistics. He also said to go with a longer barrel for the better performance, 6 inch minimum. I'd figure I'd try and shoot both before buying which still hasn't happened yet for a variety of reasons.
