Man this is pushing me hard towards a 10mm in a Ruger SBH. I like heavy loads. Right now I'm pushing a 220 hc from Rimrock just shy of 1250fps out of my TRP. I bet a SBH with a 5 shot cylinder would be a riot. Wonder what the optimal barrel length would be.

HEY JAAAAAACK.....

I have a 10mm mag in a 10 inch contender and t does get real close to 41 mag performance.

To be fair, a contender is a different animal though. The best 460S&W I had was a TC Pro Hunter. I don't think the 460 can reach it's full potential in a revolver. Honestly, I think it would be better in a lever gun configuration. Someday I'll have one.

I'd be surprised if any caliber could reach its full potential in a revolver. But IMO, the 460 in a revolver has got to be at the top in terms of most performance out of a revolver.

Yeah, I get what you're saying. I was meaning that the 460 catches another gear when used in a TC setup. All revolver cartridges will. But I REALLY noticed it in my 460. It was an honest 400+ yard gun, easily. Never did get to really spend the time needed to see what that gun could really do, but I learned a lot.

The 41 mag gets a boost in the contender as well. I really wouldnt want a 10mm mag in an auto. What I was trying to convey was that a 10mm cartridge could get close to 41 performance. At least close enuff that no animal could tell the difference.

I would not mind the 610 in the 10mm mag configuration at all though. That would be an apples to apples comparison to a smith 57...and I really like the 57.

Lone rider, you are one of the few that has the Magnum, not the auto...and probably the only guy on here...its a different animal...every round is more potent in a closed breech version..barrel/cylinder gap is not your friend

The 10 inch contender points nearly as well as the 57 for me even with the glass on it. I have been shooting contenders for 50 years and I still enjoy them. They have some performance value you can not get in a revolver in the same caliber for sure. Some disadvantages as well like round count. In my years of hunting I have never felt undergunned with them from the stand point of round count but the additional performance has come in handy at times. The 10mm is a very useful chambering and I like it. I have several and have hunted most of them successfully but the contender is one of my favorite hunting guns.
