.460 Smith&Wesson Magnum

The Smith and Wesson 460 XVR is a revolver designed to fire the .460 S&W round. It is very similar in design to the Smith and Wesson .500 magnum - currently the most powerful production handgun. Smith and Wesson's website boasts that the .460 is the highest velocity revolver cartridge in the world, firing bullets at 2330 ft/s (710 m/s). While the .460 is not quite as powerful as its big brother the .500, the .460 is said to be more accurate at long distances due to the bullet's straighter trajectory, thereby making the round more suitable for hunting slightly smaller game at longer ranges. The .460 round is a longer, more powerful version of the popular .454 Casull Hunting round; itself a longer and more powerful version of the .45 Colt. Consequently, many guns that can fire .460mag are also capable of firing the less powerful .454 and .45 Colt rounds, but this must be verified with each weapon's manufacturer.
