True. As much as I love the odd .400 there

are a lot of negatives, mostly the components. But I enjoy the challenge of making them myself. For most folks the .400 at any power level beyond 10mm auto will be a challenge and less likely to be economically viable.

Actually, and I don't like the taste of this, I'm a .44 guy at heart. But the .460 S&W is likely the hands down winner for the straight walled "hunting law" cartridge. The .460 will cheerfully shoot .45 Schofield, .45 Colt, .454 Casull, and .460 S&W. Or anywhere you choose to cut it in-between. So you can go from mild to beast mode at whim.

I have serious reservations of shooting a .454 Casull, would rather face a .475 Linebaugh! The fear of that hammer spearing my hand web, the front sight dinking my forefront, and that knuckle searing guard rap, palm numbing to the elbow. I can back off and enjoy it a lot more and still kill anything shy of a T-rex.
