In the past, I too used the ram prime. I had 2 misfires with rifles that didn't fire the 2nd time. I lost confidence in it and replaced it with a rcbs hand priming tool

Good news. Just a primer seating issue. Thanks again for all the feedback.

Well thought I had it all figured out. But after 3 misfires it's at the gunsmith now. Will keep y'all posted.

Hi Tex from CSRA--Reading your troubles w/460 reminds me of

the adventures shooting my PC 460 10 1/2".. This gun is UNIQUE

compared to shooting/loading ANY other handgun l have owned in

the last 50yrs..Without going into all the challenges, let me

say, "You cant load this ctg like you do 44s, 357s, or other

pistol calibers". lt has to be loaded like you do rifle ctgs.

Cases need to be trimmed. Primer pockets cleaned and uniformed.

Flash holes should be deburred inside the case too.. What l am

describing are benchrest loading techniques.. Two big headaches

for me were Hornady brass and dies... My opinion--There is better

out there...Hope you get the kinks out Tex. Smith&Wessons' 460 is

one of the finest out there..Enjoy...

ps.--Dont EVER shoot shorter 45Colt or 454 Casull rds in it..

Posted this update in a couple places. Looks like it may not be the primers. Took the cannon to the gunsmith and appears S&W did not check the tension in the spring/hammer assemblage when they replaced the frame. What's happened to QA/QC. Gonna pick it up today. Smith says after he adjusted it, its shooting great. I think someone posted earlier about this same issue. Back to the bench and the woods. Looks like I may be able to hunt with it this year after all. Thanks to all for your replies to my original post.

Glad you got to the bottom of it.
