• A True Hand Cannon •

S&W .460 Magnum
We've all heard the term "Hand Cannon" and this thing truly is one.... CRAZY.!!
I got the opportunity to shoot this beast this weekend & I'm still in awe.

Smith and Wesson boasts that the .460 S&W is the highest velocity revolver cartridge in the world.
The .460 S&W can achieve nearly 2900 ft·lbf of energy by driving a 360 grain bullet at 1900 ft/s.
For comparison the .50 S&W Magnum offers slightly more power driving a 350 grain bullet at 1975ft/s.
