.460 Weatherby Magnum

The .460 Weatherby Magnum's position in the lineup of rifle cartridges in this load data manual seems most appropriate since it is the last word in power among commercially produced big game cartridges. No other factory loaded cartridge burns so much powder in pushing so much bullet weight so fast. And no other cartridge can match the .460's 8000 foot pounds of muzzle energy. That's the good part. For those who desire to take a one rifle trip to Africa with the .460 Magnum, the flat shooting Hornady350 grain or Barnes400 grain bullets at 2700 to 2800 fps is just the ticket for kuda, sable, zebra, eland, and other non-dangerous game. The Hornady, Barnes, and Speer500 grain solids are  our elephant bullets, while the Speer500 grain African Grand Slam and BarnesX-Bullet should be unbeatable for everything else. Despite the size of its case, the .460 Weatherby Magnum has a relatively high expansion ratio. This calls for powders in the medium-slow burning rate range with H4350, H414, IMR-4350, and W-760being excellent choices.
