    Lightbulb Need help with next purchase.......

    I am looking at getting either a 460 S&W or 500 S&W.

    I don't know what would be the better choice.

    The 460 will shoot 3 calibers and the 500 is just the 500.....

    It will be hunting handgun......

    help please

    Well, its outside of my typical realm of experience w/ guns, but I think I'd get the 460 - so U can use 3 calibers....

    I would go for the .460. Have you priced ammo for those guns?

    I'd go with the .460 because of the plethora of bullets available for it. Plus that .460 has a mighty impressive trajectory and velocity. There's a lot to be said for a 200 grain bullet travelling 2330 fps.

    460 is the way to go.

    Smile .500 vs .460 S&W

    I would have to go with the .460 as it would be legal for deer hunting where I am. It is always nice to have a lighter charge available.
