I bought a 5" 460 used but like new. I think I paid $950 for it. I got it to go with my 500. I like it very much, it shoots well with jacketed bullets, no so much with cast. I use a healthy dose of H110 or 296 under various bullet weights from 250-340 gr. Using rifle primers is recommended to avoid pierced cups.

The Mason-Dixon FAL Association wants YOU!! Ask me for details.

5" also (really a misnomer since it is 4" with a 1" compensator).

Like it, but really carry it as a bear gun.

Use 296/110 and plated (xtreme 200 or 230 gr) or jacketed (230gr armscor brass fmj or 250 gr Hornady XTP). I use Winchester large magnum pistol primers and not had an issue with pierced primers.
