Sometimes its about the hot rod, and not the MPG

    Stole that saying from a friend of mine.


    I got a box-o-parts from Clark Custom Guns. Put a magazine of Buffalo Bore 255 grain hard cast and a few mags (after changing recoil spring) of my 45ACP target loads (200 gr LRN over 5.1 grains of Unique).

    Man this thing is a ton of fun!

    Now I just need to start working up some of my own 460 loads :supergrin:

    No one else running a 460 kit?

    In addition to the 900+ ft-lbs of energy, this barrel/compensator is almost laugable to shoot 45ACP through. It makes an already heavy pistol even heavier, but man.... it's a ton of fun :)

    I plan on carrying the Buffalo Bore (255 gr, 1300 fps) ammunition in the mountains hunting this fall. If something comes up close enough for a pistol shot, I'll give it a try and see what happens.

    Clark Custom - that's a blast from the past.

    Pretty cool!

    Back in the 80's I had a comped 1911A1 in .451 Detonics Magnum. It was a cool pistol. I killed a couple of whitetail and one mule deer with it. Plus a bunch of bowling pins and imaginary BGs.
