Interesting, you shooting that much 460 that you need to load it on a progressive?:bow: Seriously, I have not but have loaded .45 Colt on my 550b with Dillon dies. Worked slick.

I donít see dies either. I do load .500 S&W on my 550. Dropping powder takes a while. Iím sure the 460 is no different, so pause for a second or so on the downstroke. I got a RCBS (carbide) dieset plus 2nd crimp/seat die to keep seating and crimping separate.

Not sure, but I have 198 rounds that appear to possibly be factory or new brass reloads. If you are interested in them, message me.

I will keep you in mind if I ever find one to buy!

I have NOT bought a revolver yet as everyone seems to want $1500 plus,
a few places are in the $1100 price range.

I thought all of these big BOOMERS were supposed to be sold USED and cheap as the people who bought them could not handle them.

I'm NOT paying a grand for a "boom stick".

About $ 800 is as high as I am willing to pay for a used one that is clean and from a dealer (unless I get to TEST it first).
