Delivering maximum velocity for handgun hunters, Smith & Wesson engineered the 460XVR Revolver to deliver the highest muzzle velocity of any production revolver on earth. This X-treme Velocity Revolver (XVR) produces velocities over 2,300 feet per second with a gain-twist rifled barrel for superb long range accuracy past 200 yards! Interchangeable compensators help the 460XVR fire .460 Mag, .45 Colt and .454 Casull cartridges. Extra large frame helps the 460XVR deliver low perceived recoil on all loads. Long 8.38'' barrel with HI-VIZ® interchangeable front site and adjustable white outline rear sight on top.

Not sure if it's THAT model (XVR) but I have a couple of friends that have Smiths in .460.
I'll check.
I've not shot them.
One of them has successfully shot a couple of does with his, both at pretty long range.

I haven't but I'd like too, I'll bet that's a beautifully made revolver. For me that would be a long range handgun and I'd put a red dot sight or low power scope on it.

The biggest I've fired is my S&W 629 Classic. I know the .44 is a wimp compared to the newer and bigger chamberings but I have to say a hot handload is not my cup of tea even with the .44, especially with 300gr. bullets. I mostly shoot a 250 grain Keith bullet with less than a full charge.

I like it! Handgun hunting is about as close as it gets to the onestring. I've owned/shot TC Contenders in multiple calibers and numerous 44s from Smith, Ruger, and Dan Wesson. The Contenders with a muzzle brake, even in 45/70, had less recoil than most factory loaded 44s without.
