I always wanted the 460 S & W rifle barrel.. However I do have a 4570 24 inch barrel...If the 460 S & W is near the 4570 it might be better to get the 500 S & W barrel instead.. I do like how I can use the 45 Colt and 454 Casull in the 460 S & W barrel. You people that own the 460 S & W and the 500 S & W what your opinion on both calibers?

i'd go with the 500 linebaugh. as soon as i can get the money together i want a 23" MGM heavy factory barrel in 500L. you can go to the 50 alsakan(just a streched out 500L) for the velocity, but a 500L going around 1200-1300fps with a 450gr boolit puts the smackdown on anything it touches. deer and black bear look out, the 500L has come to town.

The 460 S & W Encore rifle has a peep sight.. I wonder if your really hurting yourself if the short barrel really has a large muzzle jump?

Now that I'm getting up in years I wonder of the Ghost Sights that come with the Kathadin would work against you. people who own this short barrel? Do you change the Ghost sight out to a scope and or red dot?

I have a 460 and I put 1.5x4 Leupold pig Plex cross hair on mine and a muzzle brake, the later really takes the skip out of its step ..

I have the MGM 20" 460S&W Encore barrel. I have a 1x4 Leupold scope on it and it shoots great. I load the 454 Casull and the 45 Colts with very good accuracy. I also have a 45/70 Encore barrel that shoots great. I like the versatility of the 460 S&W.
