    Buckshott00- I don't know much about the .460 and .500 S&Ws, except that if they have more muzzle blast and recoil than my .44 Mag. 6", with full .44 Mag loads, I don't want to find out. I shot a .454 Casul a few times, and that baby definitely ain't for the faint of heart!
    What I was getting at, was the meat devastation. Just as a matter of observation on deer, the bigger and slower the bullet, the less meat damage. For example, my .30-'06 is a lot less damaging with a fairly hot 165 gr. load, than the .25-06 with a 115 gr. load. A .270 Winchester will tear out a shoulder. An 8 m/m factory load doesn't really tear up that much. The .375W leaves a big bloody hole through both sides of a rib cage, but no excessive bullet shards or bloody meat like I have seen with hot .22-250s or even .243s.
    I haven't actually seen what those big bore pistol cartridges do, just speculating from what I have seen with various rifle calibers. Maybe you or someone else on the thread has some experience to relate?
