    Default 460 s&w????

    This is a bit of a newbie question but I live in Colorado and plan on hunting up in AK here pretty soon. I have a 460 Smith and Wesson 20 inch barrel for my encore and I was wondering if it would be big enough for a Bull moose and/or BIG Blackbear out to about 75 Yards

    Thanks for the Help

    Hi There I Have The Pro Hunter With The 20 Inch Katodan Barrel I Love That Gun, I Use It On My Bear Baits And I Use It As A Boat Gun I Would Not Even Think Twice About Shooting A Moose With It Our Even A Griz Our Brown Bear It Packs A Lot Of Smack. I Have A Limb Saver Stock On Mine But Have Had Freinds Walk Away Form It With Scope Eye. I Have A Lot Of Guns Ranging From 50 Bmg To 17 HMR And My 460 S&W In The Pro Hunter Is One I Use A Lot.

    Thanks Skip but just wondering what type of loads do you use with it? Right now I shoot 300g Sierras but I could always go bigger...
