PC 460XVR Spike

My buddy scored again with the 460. Spike at about 70 yards. Not sure how to get pictures embedded so they are in bragging board. He is shooting the 460 Hornady 200 grain factory load as it grouped tight at 100 yards - better than alot of rifles I have seen. I am a little confused by the entry wound but I am assuming the bullet fraged the ribs since the exit hole seems normal. Either way the 460 is a very powerful round and with the 200 grain bullet, it must be smoking fast. Website indicates 2200 fps.

Awesome!

Based on my experience with both the shorter and longer barreled Model 460's, that 10.5" version is probably pushing them around 2,300 fps or faster.

That factory 200 load is like a bomb. Congrats
